Happy Thursday! The week is almost over and spring break is on the horizon. I know my kids are counting down the hours … and are pretty much over school for the week.
I love glass jars. I love them clear, in color, empty or full of cool things! Here are a couple things I have done with glass jars lately:
This is the shelf I put over my large window over the kitchen sink. The three glass bottles on the left side are just plain antique green glass bottles. I like them just all by themselves. They are printed with a raised logo that says”1868 Honey”.
Just a small skinny bottle from Hobby Lobby adds a little color to a centerpiece tray. This on my table in the banquette area. Check out some additional things to do with simple bottles …
Super cute clear labels with the dictionary definitions of your basic baking staples. I love the way this looks.
How cute are these? Painted with oven-fired paint to make them dishwasher safe. Perfect for spring or Easter decorations too!
Terrariums in glass jars are so perfect as decoration in any area of the house. I like the addition of green in any room – it adds interest. Just really fun to look at!
Go out in your yard (or your neighbor’s yard in the dead of night – I’m not encouraging just suggesting) and pick some flowers. Wild flowers with long stems look really cool in these clear glass bottles.
These jars are just covered in scrapbook paper with bows made from string and ribbon. Aren’t they cool? Any paper can be used to go with the decor of your house. Love it!
Simple Ball jars you can buy at any local grocery store + a little twine + a small bunch of flowers = vintage heaven.
Here is another example of a great use of chalkboard paint.
Putting your collections in vintage glass jars make them look really unique and interesting. These would look great on a shelf behind your bar in the basement.
Organize your crafts in a way where you can not only see what you have, but it looks fabulous too!
These candy jars are made out of old pickle jars and then set on candlesticks that have been spray painted white. Awesome!
Are you kidding? How easy is this? Wrap some twine around a jar – spray paint and Wa La … Huge Impact!
I am head over heels for this candle jar fixture for a screen porch. I can’t wait to build a porch just to have this hang in it. Wow!
And last but not least … I think this is my favorite way to use a simple Ball jar. Don’t be surprised if next time you come to my house for a party you will be drinking out of a jar.
Hope your life is more heaven than havoc!
