Think spring and create some cute jars to use to hold flowers, or candles–bring some cheer to your home decor to beat the winter blahs!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

To begin, paint the outside of your jars with acrylic paint using long up and down strokes.  Let dry.  Paint a second coat of paint, and let dry.

Add a little water to some of the lighter brown paint, and use your toothbrush/splatter brush to add speckles to the outside of your painted jars.  Let dry.

Add a little water to some of the burnt umber paint, and use your toothbrush/splatter brush to add more speckles to your jars.  Let dry.

Wrap your jute tightly several times around the top of the jar, and tie in a knot.  Trim ends.

Tuck a couple of feathers under the knot, using hot glue as needed to hold.

Use your beautiful jars as vases to display flowers, or paint smaller jars and use them to hold candy, or candles.

Happy Crafting!
