I have been collecting a lot of jars lately. Every time I would finish something in a jar I thought oh I will just keep and do something with it later. I had several of these beet jars piling up. So I wanted to make a little row of pastel coloured jars for my shelves. This is what they looked like before I upcycled them.
Excuse the picture it was taken late last night. I remembered to take it while I was soaking them to take the labels off. I picked really light pastel colours they look almost like milk paint,which I love the look of. Once the jars were dried off I poured acrylic paint in to each one. Then turned them upside down and let the paint run out.
While that was going on I cut strips of 2 inch light weight card to create labels. I painted them the same colours.
Next I painted the lids with 2 coats of white paint. Then once they were dry I painted a circle of colour on each one. I then took my stamps that are from the Angie Bloom kit called Angie Girl - Dream With Your Heart. I used just the flowers and stamped each strip with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I did the same with the lids I embossed a couple of flowers on top of the lids.I tied some ribbon and added some tiny pearls to the labels to complete my project. How pretty do they look? I love them they are going to sit right on my craft shelves.
Thanks so much for stopping by have a great weekend
