Over at The Crafted Sparrow, Rebecca points out that, “Right now Ball jars are all the rage, crafting with them and collecting them.” She took on the challenge to put a modern twist on one of her own jars, to give it a fresh, new look.
After cleaning and prepping her glass canning jar, Rebecca painted the whole thing white. Then, she taped off some stripes and painted over the jar again in black. Peeling off the tape revealed a fashion-friendly classic black and white stripe. In a nod to the vintage era Ball jar, Rebecca lightly sanded the painted jar, to give it a slightly distressed look. It’s lovely as a vase, or, as she points out, “If you are looking for a cute way to package a small gift for a friend this is a unique and fun way to do it.” Oooh, and I can think of some really fun ways to use this for Halloween!
