A Jar And A Doily.
The other night I really needed a mindless activity, so I raided my mason jar collection, hunted high and low for some leftover-from-last-year heart doilies, totally spoiled myself and cracked open a can of Coke, and got to work making this years' doilied jar. (click here for last year's)
The project couldn't be any simpler or cheaper. It really couldn't. I mean we're talking "no money was spent for this project" kind of cheap. And I mean all you have to do is know-how-to-tie-a-knot kind of simple.
a doily of any shape
a heart punch to punch out the hearts
a scrap piece or two of cardstock
some sort of jute, twine, etc.
some tape or scrapbooking adhesive
Place your doily on your jar. So it doesn't shift on you while you're trying to tie your string, keep the doily in place with a small piece of adhesive. Add your hearts, again securing them in place with adhesive. Then grab your jute, wrap it around the jar a couple of times, tie it in a knot in the front, then proudly show your husband and your kids what you made and graciously accept their praise!
So what are you waiting for? Go grab a jar, a doily, some sort of string/yarn/jute/twine, your favorite beverage and get creative!
