I'm so fed up with chucking stuff away.
By that I mean food packaging. Specifically, jars and bottles.
I wish I could have my own little farmers' market outside.
(Yes, I know it's called an allotment, but that would mean ME lifting a spade.)
Anyway, I wanted to do something with jars. I went on my craft board on Pinterest which is MASSIVE (what else) and found one that I'd been saving for a rainy day. I followed the link back to the original DIY by Fellow Fellow (just to give credit) but I didn't follow it I just did my own thing!
You'll find what I did below:
|Lovely vintage style material, scissors, thread, jar and ribbon.|
|If you're NOT lazy you could iron your material...ahem, and cut it to fit your jar.|
|Hem the long ends together (or hot glue it for speed) You could also hem both ends if you're a perfectionist.|
|Thread your embroidery cotton through the bottom end all the way round (in-out-in-out)|
|Push in your jar (mine was gherkin and, despite washing, still smelt tangy - meh, it'll burn off)|
|Then pull your thread taught round the bottom.|
|Fold over the top edge of your material tube (you could hem it; mine was the edge of the material and didn't need it)|
|Wrap the ribbon round the neck of the jar. You could thread it through the material.|
|Put in your tea light and there you go. A pretty vintage style glow.|
