Pasta Jar Transformation

4 Materials
I had a few empty pasta jars lying around and thought I could reuse them for my bathroom decor. While scrubbing away and trying to get the old sticky label off, I found soaking the bottles in really hot water with a small amount of bicarbonate and vinegar to be effective.
Soaked the bottles overnight to get rid of the old sticky label.
I Found the graphics I liked on the web. I then printed these out on photo paper. I then traced around the lid over the design to get the right label size. Using craft glue, I then glued the label to the lid.
I then wrapped the twine around the lid using craft glue, making sure I could not see the lid. I did this until I reached the top of the label. I used a seperate piece of twine to go around the top of the label once only.
To finish it off, I found an old metal looking button to place on the top.

    You are brilliant! I want to organize my items in the master bathroom and this is perfect. I'm so glad I came across it today. I always keep these jars and wash them well and use for grease,yuck. It takes forever to fill one so I end up with recycling a few. Actually I can use all sorts of glass jars. I💖you and your creativity! Have a blessed day.
