It all started with this salsa jar. Most people immediately think of delicious tostitos chips crunching away in their mouths when they see this jar, I immediately thought... "ooooo check out the shape on that jar. Hmmm....wonder what I could use that for and how could I make it look cute!?!?" LOL...
We all know my brain is not like the rest and I wouldn't change it for the world. Nuff said!
I had been wanting to wrap a vase of some sort in jute for a while now but I didn't want to use any of the vases I had around my house(bec I liked them too much) and I didn't want to just go out and buy one for no good reason....duh the purpose is to REUSE. So when I saw this jar I thought this would be a perfect little project to test it out. I had originally planned on using it as a flower vase when I started the project and then midway through I thought it would be the perfect utensil holder for my desk in my classroom. Here is the finish product. I love how it turned out...
First step was to
eat the rest of the salsa with handfuls of chips clean it out and peel off the label with a little goo gone...love that stuff!
Then I pulled out my jute and my hot glue gun and I got started.
I only hot glued the starting piece a the top, then again halfway down, and then I glued the last few rows at the very bottom to keep things neat and tidy.
This was literally a 5 min project and it cost me nothing, due to the fact that I craft all the time so I already had the jute and the glue in the house. I also added a burlap bow that I stole from the wreath on my front door and I glued some ribbon on for a pop of color to match the tray on my desk.
Now if you come to my house, WATCH OUT.... EVERYTHING will be wrapped in jute!
And of course a couple days later I saw this gem in JoAnn's...
GOOD STUFF!!! I like mine better and I saved myself $16.99... money in the bank!
