So I’m terrible at gift giving. I never know what to give. So when going to my friend’s birthday this weekend I had no idea what to bring. I recently painted a couple of mason jars for myself and loved them. So I thought this might be a cute gift to make for her.
I felt especially confident giving these to her after my 4 year old’s comment. He saw them and said “Mom are you throwing those rickety old things in the garbage”. Man kid you’re harsh. I guess he has serious doubts about my crafting abilities.
But I gave them to her anyways. What does a 4-year-old really know.
To make them I simply painted the jars with some latex paint (2 coats). Lightly roughed them up with some sandpaper. Then tore a couple of strips of fabric and tied them around the top of the jars (I tore it to give the fabric the worn (rickety) look).
- Hostess Gifts
- Christmas Presents
- Teacher Gifts
- Vases for giving flowers in
- Stocking Stuffers
If I had been more on top of things I would have filled them with some candy or flowers or something. But of course I wasn’t.
