Mother’s Day is in just 9 days folks! I think there’s been a full moon for about 2 months straight now, because all my friends on Facebook keep making status updates like “Send Chocolate” and “I need to go to the store because I’ve eaten all my chocolate” or “The Easter Chocolate is all gone…now what?” So after seeing a tutorial on HomeTalk on making Washi Tape Vases, I thought I would make a quick afternoon project for all my chocolate deprived Mom readers using a cleaned out gravy jar.
DIY Washi & Masking Tape Mother’s Day Jar
Cleaned glass jar with a lid
Washi &/or Masking Tape
round label or paper to fit the jar lid
Seriously this is SO easy.
Just choose the different tapes you want to use.
Starting at one of the seams if the jar has one, holding the tape taut, wrap it around the jar.
When you’ve gone around the circumference of the jar, cut the tape off and start another row. It’s really just that simple!
Then using your computer print off what you want the label to say, or write it on the label using permanent markers. Feel free to download and use the label I made for mine (mine is sized for a 2″ lid). Then adhere it to the lid, using a glue stick if you just use paper.
Fill the jar with Mom’s favorite chocolate candy.
And give it to your favorite Mom for Mother’s Day!
I think most Moms out there would appreciate this 😉 Change the word Mom on the label to Teacher and you’ve got a great end of the year teacher gift too!
