Good morning. Today, I'm excited to share a DIY project that I worked on yesterday. It all started about a week ago when I picked up a mason jar from Dollar Tree. Thanks to my hanging out on Pinterest, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
Here are all of the supplies I used. I found some pretty lace at JoAnn Fabrics that was only $5.99 per yard. I couldn't have been happier that it was 40% off. Now since the jar isn't very large, I only needed about 3/8 of a yard of fabric which is enough to cover 3 since my daughters wanted to fancy up their jars, too. It only came up to $1.50. I already had some Elmer's Craft Bond Spray Adhesive on hand so the only other thing I needed was some pearls and a flower.
First, I started off by separating the lid from the jar. With the project that I have in mind, I didn't have a need for the top, so it was simply discarded. Second, I peeled off the label.
I didn't think of it when I was at JoAnn Fabrics, but I wasn't sure if I needed to use one or two layers. I finally decided that using a single layer should work just fine, at least I hoped it would.
I ended up with too much lace, so I trimmed the fabric down even more. I only needed enough to cover the outside of the jar up to the rim.
Once I had the right amount of lace, I positioned the jar. I wanted to make sure the lace would be secured to the glass so I started by spraying some of the adhesive spray on only one small section at a time wrapping it around as I continued.
Then I sprayed extra on the bottom of the jar and folded over the end piece.
Along the neck of the jar, I used my hot glue gun to make a small trail. (I know, my glue gun has definitely seen better days). Making sure that my pearls are nice and straight, I started wrapping the pearls around the neck of the jar. Again, I only worked on one small section at a time. The final step was to hot glue the flower on.
That's it! It was super inexpensive and very easy to make... even for me.
Putting it in front of a mirror shows you a little more detail. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day begins and ends beautifully.
