Sauce Jar to Saucy Accessory!
I had been saving these salsa, tomato sauce, and pickle jars thinking I would turn them into cute outdoor lanterns with tea candles in them. But I needed wire, and rocks or sand for the bottom, and I didn't want to spend a dime, so....
I had some chalkboard paint from my recent cupboard door to chalkboard project. And I always have twine....
Here's how I did it:
Soaked the labels off overnight in warm soapy water, Then I taped off (freehand was fine) the section I wanted to be chalkboard. (This would be much easier if you use a stick on cb label, but I was going for free so I used what I had) I painted it by hand and it needed 2 coats, drying between each coat.
I wound the tops with twine (I really need to put a spot of glue to secure it)...
Aren't they so cute!
and here, in my remade bathroom!
Make it a Great Day!
