I am so overwhelmed! On the last post I was hoping to hit 700 views. Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick featured me on her blog and oh my goodness! In just 24 hours there were almost 1,000 views! Thank you so much to all of my first-time friends!
Now to share a really fun DIY project! The other day I made spaghetti and was throwing away the jar when I stopped myself. Why throw away a perfectly good glass jar? Its not glamorous but it could be useful, right?!
So I cut a translucent piece of scrapbook paper that I love and stuck it to the sticky spot from the label.
I wrapped it around the jar and taped it in place.
Then I started thinking about what I could use this for. And it hit me! We have a plain jar in our office with change in it. We plan to use the change/small bills to buy supplies for the basement/house. So I grabbed a couple of scrapbooking embellishments and popped them on there using some scotch tape.
It needed just a little bit more...so I tied a ribbon around the top. Then I dumped our change in there and its so cute!
Seriously guys...this was super quick and I love the way it turned out! I will probably have these all over our house! I'm sure the hubby would stop me if I got carried away...guess we'll see!
So.... a giveaway! Here's how we will do this. I am going to make one of these for one of you. For free! What I need you to do is comment on here what you would use a cutie little jar for! Pencils? Kitchen stuff? Flowers? Let me know! Inspire me! And then tweet this...share it on FB...link it up. Whatever you do! Share it with a friend! I will announce the winner on Sunday and you can email me what colors you would like. Then I will create one of these for you! For fa-ree! :) Love you guys!
