Painted Jars With Initials & Knobs

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I love re-purposing jars!  I am constantly washing them & scraping off the labels.  Once I save up enough, I start dreaming of a creative way to use them.  Usually I am creating some sort of gift for the teachers & friends in my life.

For this craft, I painted jars and added fun knobs.  These look great as home decor.  They can bring a unique element to a book case, or be used to store something.  I have cotton balls stored in a jar in the bathroom.

Since I made these with the intention of gift giving, I decided to personalize them.  Prior to painting, I attached a sticker with the person’s initial.  I purchased the initial stickers at Hobby Lobby.  This gave each jar a little extra dimension.  After the paint dried, I “roughed” them up with a light sand paper.  This helped the initial become more prominent.

In order to attach the fun knobs, I needed to drill holes in the lids.  I started by painting the lids colors that looked good with the paint color.  I kept it simple and painted lids black, white, silver, & gold.  After the paint dried, I used a drill to create the holes.

Once the holes were drilled, I attached the knobs.  I found fun inexpensive knobs at TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Hobby Lobby, & Lowes.

I tied coordinating colored ribbon around the rim, just because it looked cute.

These jars were so fun to create & people enjoyed receiving them.  They especially liked that they were personalized.

Happy creating!
