Recycling Coffee Jars ~ Getting My Crafting Mojo Back
I’m starting to get my crafting mojo back, nothing major, just a little tinkering of jars which would have ended up in the recycling bin, but instead are now a tea light holder and vase.
Whilst the kids were busy creating new pieces for the Tate Gallery I came up with these.
Both started out as coffee jars, once emptied of their caffeine goodness, I soaked the labels off and dried them.
With the largest jar I was trying to emulate a tea light holder I had seen on someone’s Instagram feed, after a looky loo online I gave up on buying one and decided to try my own.
Using some letter stickers I added a few words.
Some lacy ribbon glued around the top and bottom of the jar add a nice little “something”.
I wanted to use the smaller jar for a tea light, and being a lover of all things spotty and dotty I randomly added a bunch of dot stickers to the jar.
Before popping in the tea light, I sprinkled some coffee beans in the bottom of the jar,
the heat from the candle should warm the beans, letting out of of their coffee smelling goodness.
Look rather nice don’t ya think?!
This was a super simple and easy craft, now I’ve got a whole bunch of ideas to work on, I just need to find the time to actually do them!
