Pickle Jars Made Beautiful
Never throw away an empty jar again! I had a few empty jars laying around so I decided to do something crafty with them. In this article, I will show you how to turn pickle jars into works of art.
What you will need:
Craft Paint (I used Chalk Paint)
Napkin (I have several sources for napkins)
Decoupage Glue (I used Mod Podge Matte)
Clean rag or paper towel
Begin applying the decoupage glue from the center of the napkin moving toward the edges (apply enough to secure the pic without saturating)
Allow to dry thoroughly
Apply a thin coat of decoupage glue
Allow to dry thoroughly (around 30 minutes)
Once dry, apply a second coat of decoupage glue
Allow to dry thoroughly
Apply a thin coat of matte varnish
Allow to dry thoroughly (may take up to 3 hours)
Apply a second coat of matte varnish
I like to add little additions like jute, colored jute, ribbon, other craft jewelry to enhance the project
These little beauties would make great gifts for teachers, can be used in bathrooms, in the kitchen to hold utensils, on makeup tables to hold makeup brushes or just as decoration. There are so many uses for these jars. If you keep and paint the tops, you can fill them with goodies and give as gifts. I also think these jars filled with jelly beans for Easter or filled with makeup for the diva in your life is also a creative idea.
