I have a bunch of materials in my home that are just waiting for crafting. Much to my husband’s chagrin I save a lot of things that I think I can recycle or re-purpose. Time however is something I don’t have as much of as I do materials, lol!
I had some leftover jute twine from the DIY Texas Wreath I made last month. I was trying to figure out what to do with it when I spied some empty gravy jars under my sink.
These wrapped jars can be made with any kind of clean, empty glass jars and twine you happen to have. Then I hot glued some Valentine’s Day stickers I happened to have to the front of the jar on the jute. You could glue rhinestones on in a pattern or stencil paint some hearts on it or Valentine’s Day sayings too.
Clean glass jar
Twine (jute, string, yarn would work too!)
Embellishments (stickers, rhinestones, fake gem stones, paint, etc.)
Glue about 1/2 inch of the end of the twine to the side of the jar where you want it to start at either the top or the bottom. If your jar has a seam, that’s a good place to start.
Wind the twine around the jar for your desired height, then cut the twine and glue that end to the jar.
Decorate the twine with stickers (you probably will have to glue them on), rhinestones, gem or paint.
They can hold all sorts of items. You could put forks & spoons in them for a Valentine’s Day party, I put some battery operated tea lights in mine for a fun evening glow.
These would make great teacher gifts from your child as well filled with chocolates or flowers.
