Hellooo my darlings! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was super fun, but less than productive. However, I did manage to make a few small doodads here and there. You come first, my dishes second, and the pile of clothing on my bedroom floor third.
I didn't tell you this before because I was distracted, but [one of] my New Years resolutions was to save mason jar-like food containers and use them for crafts. I always intend to do this, and then I get too lazy to wash them out and end up giving up. I know. I have no wherewithal. I'm working on it. My life = work in progress. And you get to witness it! How fun for you.
My first jarring project (get it?! GET IT?!?! I bet you are on the floor laughing. I'm so punny... Zing.)
Yarn Covered Mason Jar-like Container.
1. Hot glue gun from Michael's.
2. Tea candle from the Chabadnicks on Bedford Ave. I'm not kidding. But I'm guessing you could get these at... Michael's? I don't know - you tell me. Or just slink around Bedford at North 5th on a Friday afternoon and see where that gets you. Also, try to look Jewish while slinking. That helps.
3. Yarn from Micahel's.
4. Cleaned out Tostito's (mild) Salsa jar from a local grocery store.
Add some hot glue along the top edge for the jar.
Carefully place the yarn along the top edge on the got glue.
Start wrapping! Add some hot glue every now and then to make sure the yarn stays in place.
When you get to the bottom, glue down the yarn and snip it off the extra.
I like it. It looks rustic-ish. I think it belongs in a room that also features drift wood as decoration.
With the candle inside this is a real mood setter. Imagine a bunch of them on a shelf all lit up. Its a pretty image in your imagination, isn't it. Romantic, right? See?! I got your back. Wing-woman of the year over here. Except for all that stuff where I tell you to use glitter and gush about my cat. That won't get you anywhere with the boys. Trust me. I know.
Here is a conclusion that you most likely came to on you own, but you know, I want to make sure you know I though of everything. Are you ready?
This is not candle exclusive.
That didn't surprise you or blow your mind, but it is a necessary conversation that we have to have.
This jar can be used in many, many ways, whatever tickles your fancy really. A popular use might be a pen/pencil/supplies holder or a vase. That's all I can think of off the top of my head but you catch my flow. Right? I hope so, because otherwise I am failing miserably at blogging.
OK! Enough chit chat. Back to work everyone! E-me if you want me to make this for you!
