Pinterest Party Project

I write a DIY & crafting article every month 
for the local magazine, Fayette Woman.
Back in February, Fayette Woman hosted a
Pinterest Party at Earth Mama's General Store
and I had the pleasure of teaching the class. 
The project is featured in this months magazine.
I combined several things I had seen on Pinterest
to create this sweet candy jar...

 Here's what you'll need to make one...
Large Mason Jar
Burlap Ribbon
Wooden Flower Cutout
Wooden Disc
Wooden Knob
Scrapbook Paper
Glass Candleholder
Acrylic Paint
E6000 Glue
Tacky Glue
Pencil Scissors

Put a dot of E6000 in the center of the front of the mason jar. Place the center of the burlap ribbon on the dot of glue.

Wrap the ribbon around the jar and
 glue down the ends with E6000.
Set aside.

Trace around the wooden flower onto
 scrapbook paper and cut out.
Adhere the paper to the flower using tacky glue...

Using a coordinating paper,
repeat the process on the wooden disc.
Glue the disc to the flower using E6000.
Glue a button to the center of the disc.

With the jar lying on its back,
glue the flower to the jar with E6000.
Leave the jar lying on its back or the flower will slide.
Set aside and allow to dry.

Paint the knob with acrylic paint and set aside to dry.

Using the rim of the lid of the jar as a template,
trace and cut out a piece of scrapbook paper to cover the lid. The knob will go in the center of the lid, so if there is a section of the paper you want to feature, make sure it is not in the center of the template.

Glue the paper onto the lid using tacky glue.

Glue the lid into the lid rim using E6000
and allow to dry.

Once dry, glue the knob to the lid.

You could stop there and have a perfectly lovely candy jar.
But for a little something extra, glue a dollar store candlestick to the jar using E6000.

Fill the jar with candy and you have a
sweet creation worthy of being pinned.

Pin It

We had so much fun at the Pinterest Party that we
are doing it again in May.
The articles are written 2 months in advance,
so you'll have to wait until July to see that project!

 You can see pictures from our party HERE.
