Decoupage Easter Fun

2015-04-03 23.05.11

So I looked over at my jars of stuff sitting on my sideboard and thought ‘eurgh these are ugly, I wonder if I could make them prettier’.I jumped onto pinterest and found a wealth of ideas for decorating mason jars, but the one thing that stood out was decoupage, so off I set. Out came the pva and tissue paper.

I started by measuring the height of the jars and the circumference and cutting out a piece of corresponding tissue paper.

I then adhered it to the glass jar. I was going to buy a tub of mod podge but on researching alternatives, I found it was nothing more than water and pva. You heard me right. Check out this super informative article: http://lulastic.co.uk/thrifty-2/homemade-mod-podge/

After that I added some cute crochet ribbon (£2 for 3 meters in tiger) to the rim of the jar and made some cute little bows with my bow maker.

Finally I made some cute little labels using my die cutter and alphabet stamps.

And there you go! What do you think? I love them. They look much nicer lined up on my side board now!
