A friend of mine did a jar in burlap and I loved it so I decided to do me one. I made a trip to Hobby Lobby yesterday evening to get what I needed. I came home and gathered the supplies. I bought the embellishment in the jewelry department and picked up some burlap and a piece of lace. Everything else I already had at home.
First I traced the lid and cut out a circle.
I hot glued that to the lid. I didn't want to have the Ball logo showing on my lid.
Then I glued the lid inside the jar ring.
Now when I take it off to get in the jar, it will be all one piece.
Next I cut a strip of burlap about 2 3/4" x 11".
I hot glued one edge to the jar.
I worked my way around until the jar was covered. Burlap is very hard to keep straight. Next time I am putting a chalk line around the jar to have a guide line to follow. Once you glue it, you can't move it.
Then I got my lace and my jute string.
I wrapped the lace around the burlap, gluing it about every inch or so.
Next, I tied the jute in a bow around it.
Next I filled it with buttons. I am going to need more buttons and I want to look for vintage ones, but right now I just used what I had.
Then I glued the embellishment on the front. It has scissors, a button, a little ruler and a flower on it. I am very pleased with the result.
And the good part is that I had a 40% off on the embellishment and I had most of the stuff around the house. Here is what the entire project cost me out of pocket.
A cute little jar for just $3.61. You can't beat that.
