Ornaments in a Jar!

Wednesday, November 2, 2011


Look at that sweet little face!

This is my fave part of the altered jar that I made for Lessology's Jars of Cuteness challenge.


This project was so fun to make. Here are the details...Instead of throwing away my Ragu spaghetti sauce jar I decided to recycle, clean it, and alter it up for Christmas.



I purchased all of my supplies from Michael's craft store. The snowman is actually a Christmas tree ornament. Here's a side view of my jar. I covered the Ragu label with glitter cardstock to add some shine.


On the inside of the jar I added sparkly styrofoam balls and a larger pink ornament. I also added pink curly ribbon. I'm going to make more of these for gift giving season.

Staying Crafty said...

I love it! I am having a total *duh* moment right now. *LOL* I have not figured out how to re-use jars b/c of the stamped dates and things that are sometimes left on them. For some reason I kept thinking of etching and painting them and it never occurred to me to use fabric. I love felt, so I may totally have to use this idea for the holidays :)
