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.
“Wonder what I will come up with next”…
