Mason Jars & Beer Bottles 

Hello!  Mason jars & beer bottles make for perfect up-cycled creations!  Here’s a little gift I recently put together!

I created a pen cup using a mason jar, ribbon, a monogram decal, and black pebbles.
I created a little vase with a beer bottle, spray paint, and ribbon.  I’ve found that holding the bottle farther away from the spray paint and slowly rotating the bottle helps give  a mercury glass appearance.
I added a few other office supplies to finish off the gift!

Happy Crafting y’all!

My Second Wreathe!

Hello!  This wreathe wasn’t as challenging as my first, but I really liked it.  Everything fell in place “by mistake.”  I purchased a string of (what I thought was white) lights on wire for another craft, however they were in fact red lights!  I added the lights, a large red bow, and a few pine cone picks to a plain old wreathe and it all came together nicely!

Hope y’all enjoyed!!!

Mason Jar Ornaments! 

Hello! With all the mason jar crafts I’ve been making, I had a ton of unused lids.  I found a fun craft that turned those lids into ornaments!

What you’ll need:

  • Mason jar lids
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Twine
  • Wooden letters
  • Spray paint

To start, use the smaller portion of the mason jar lid to trace a circle onto scrapbook paper.  Cut out the circle. Use hot glue to secure the paper to the smaller portion of the lid. You can either loop the twine to the larger portion of the lid and then insert the smaller portion and secure with hot glue, or you can secure the smaller portion and glue the twine to the back. I tested both methods and preferred gluing the twine to the back. I spray painted festive wooden words I found Michael’s and secured to the paper.

I had a lot of fun making these and they were great gifts! They were so cute, I didn’t want to give them away! Hope y’all enjoyed!

Mason Jar Manicures

Hello!  These Mason Jar Mani sets are super fun and easy to make… and they make great gifts!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Mason Jar
  • Paint/Spray Paint
  • Ribbon/Twine
  • Hot Glue
  • Manicure Tools
  • Nail Polish
  • Cotton Balls

I spray painted my jars (but you can paint them by hand too!), wrapped ribbon and twine around the top of the jar (securing with hot glue), and dropped the manicure tools, nail polish, and a few cotton balls inside!

The jars are great for make up (or paint) brushes too!  Hope y’all enjoyed!!!
