Jolly Jars.

Good afternoon! Are you having a nice day? What have you been up to?

I have been decorating jars. What for? Well, i haven't really decided yet. Although i'm sure i'll think of something to go in them. They could have jam or something edible in them or they could be jars for holding knitting needles and sewing things or maybe a vase for flowers. So many possibilities!

I got the idea of making these jars from the Dotty Angel blog that i wrote about last week. She had made some beautiful vintage looking decoupage jars (holding knitting needles) and i wanted to have a go. Mine are bright a bold though, and i think they are very cute.

I cut strips of material (a good way for using up all the odds and end i had) and then used normal cheap PVA craft glue to glue them to the jar. Once covered, i then put another layer of glue over the top.

To finish them i then glued half a doily to each one. I now have to leave them to dry, but i couldn't resist showing them to you.

What do you think? What shall i do with them?
