Interesting twist to ordinary jars

‪#‎Reduce‬ ‪#‎Reuse‬ ‪#‎Recycle‬

Yesterday, as I was cleaning my kitchen shelves, I came across a huge stash of jars and bottles.You know those jam bottles and pickle jars variety.Some of them come in  nice shapes  and sizes, so I never had the heart to throw them away.At the same time, over a period of time we collect so many apart from the jars that we are lured into buying.

Now, my suggestion... do not throw them away. Put them into good use by simply giving them a little DIY tweak.

Remember the three R'S ...Reduce,Reuse, Recycle (Up cycle)

Ordinary jars?
Step 1: Give the jars a good wash.Remove the label.

Step 2:Scout for old fabric scrap.

Step 3: Here we are going to revamp the lid of the jar

Step 4: Cover the lid with your choicest fabric.It can be printed, plain, striped anything that you like.

Step 5: Cut  one size bigger in dimension to the actual lid. Now on the inner side of the lid, just stick it with glue.

Step 6: You can leave it at that too! I have gone one step further by cutting some floral patterns on felt craft and tied it atop the jar lid.You can even use this jar to gift your loved one with home made cookies and treats!


Similarly,for the second jar, I simply painted the lid with acyrlic colours. Give a coat of varnish by applying modpodge or a mix made of equal quantity of water and fevicol. As far as possible store dry that you do not have to wash the lid often.

Do you find this worth experimenting?
