Twine Covered Jars

Lately I've seen so many pretty twine wrapped jars. I have been looking for a few to pretty-up my craft desk...

So I used a spaghetti jar and a jelly jar and wrapped them with rope and gray ribbon. We still had jelly in the jar but I was impatient, so now we have jelly in a plastic container and a jelly jar on my desk.


Now they hold brushes markers and extra fabric and ribbon scraps.



Perfect!

  4. Okay . . . how neat and tidy is your craft area! I'm feeling a little shame over my randomly scattered mess all over the dining room table!

  23. Cute! I'm curious as to what kind of adhesive you used to keep the twine on the jars? The design of your blog is really cute too!

  28. Don't you just hate the wait ...when you have a good idea? I'm waiting on tin-cans myself!
    Until then my project waits on me! Hmmm... maybe I could open them all up and freeze the contents...
