My friend, Mendi, at work asked me yesterday if I needed baby food jars for any crafts for VBS. I thanked her and said I already had all my crafts lined out. Then I remembered I saw something on Pinterest one time that I wished I had some baby food jars. So I told her to bring me a few this morning to work. I got up this morning and had to go to Pinterest to see what it was that I saw for baby food jars. Bad idea. I have now told Mendi to bring me as many jars as she wants.
I have been trying to find just the right size glass containers to put my Jello or chocolate pudding in when I make it so I can have individual size servings to just grab and eat. I'm not sure why I never thought of baby food jars. This would also be great to make servings in for my Reese's peanut butter brownie trifle to give to people who say "save me some" when I make it.
There is a fundraiser in July for my friend Stephanie who is going to be undergoing a double lung transplant. They are asking for craft donations for the craft booth at the fundraiser. Many of these ideas below would be perfect for the fundraiser.
Allen and I made bath salts years ago and gave them to the nieces for gifts. They were a huge hit.
One site even gives you directions on how to dye baby food jars. That would be easy and fun to give them some color.
I'm saving this idea for Christmas. I am going to go ahead and make the jars, but can fill them when Christmas gets here. It would be cute to make a set of three. In one put cocoa mix, another could have chopped up peppermint, and mini marshmallows in the other and a recipe for peppermint hot chocolate.
When I was looking at these jars, I got slightly sidetracked (as I always do) with other things on the boards I was on. And when this popped up, I decided this is what I want to do for a centerpiece for my summer decor.
If I can find the right three tier piece, I could change it out at holidays. Love this fall one.
And this one for Valentine's.
This is another cute one for Valentine's but I like the three tiers better.
And one of the sites actually had this on it and I fell in love with it. It gave a link on where to buy it. So still wanting it, I visited the link. I saw the price. $179.99. For an ironing board? That I would rarely use? Hmmm, no thank you. I'll use my $7.99 one I got from Walmart on sale one time.
Well, I finally pulled myself away from Pinterest and got this blog written. So now to do some housework before I go to work. It's a three show day so that means they feed us lunch. I heard it is going to be from one of my favorites...Chambers Market. Hoping it is barbecue. That's my favorite from them. Have a great Saturday!
