I love documenting my attempts at crafting ideas from Pinterest. Some turn out just like the Pinterest idea and some .... not so much. So I documented my most recent attempt. Success or fail? You decide. Here was my inspiration....
I checked my home supplies and then made a trip to Hobby Lobby for burlap and a flower. I gathered everything together.
I cut the burlap ribbon and glued the checkered material on it with my Tacky Glue.
I wrapped it around my jar, gluing as I went.
When that was done, I wrapped the thinner green accent ribbon and glued it on.
The flower is actually a scrapbook embellishment so it was peel and stick.
Then I filled my jar with candy corn.
I put the lid on it.
And this was the finished project. Though I would not call it a complete success, it was at least not a failure. The width of the pre-fringed burlap cause it to stick up too high on the jar. I don't like that. But I didn't want to trim it down and refringe it because I was afraid I couldn't do it straight. If I do another one, it will have a smaller width burlap.
I had this old chalkboard and I picked up these cute little Fall clothespins at Hobby Lobby.
So I am a little impromptu sign.
Set them on my table and I am okay with the result, but still may get some smaller burlap and redo the jar.
So what is your opinion. Pinterest success or fail?
