Ribbon and Pearl Jar Craft

Ribbon and Pearl Jar Craft-

I try and recycle, upcycle repurpose and reuse whenever possible. I took a couple of very plain jars ( an olive jar and a jam jar) and added some silky ribbon and pearls. I love the idea of using bakers twine, lace, jute, string and other goodies to cover a jar or bottle.

 I found some other pretty examples  from around the blogosphere I thought you might like.all  images from the blogs mentioned

These bottles are from The Bridal District I like the use of two different types of twine.

I found these twine wrapped  mason jars at Notes On A Wedding

The rustic look of this jar from Simply Homemade is perfect for this lovely bloom.

Adding bits of lace made these jars from  Something Turquoise ( don’t you love that name?) beautiful. Adding lace often does.

I had to add these sweet pots too by Third Floor Design!

I sell ribbon bottles and jars in my shop too

    Katie, yours are very elegant. I haven’t done anything with jars, lately, but I have tons of them. I used to paint and decoupage them.

    wow these are great, I love the ones with the string tied around them, you have inspired me to try to do the same! thankyou!

  3. Pam@over50feeling40

    I love using jars for vases and the string is a great idea! I will be back for the Blog Hop next week!! have a great weekend, katie!

    I love those jar ideas and they are all pretty! Years ago my dad used baby food jars and glued rows of five to all sides of a thick piece of wood. This he somehow made so it could rotate… don’t ask me how. It was used to store nuts, bolts, nails, scews… I have no idea what happened to it though. Your jars brought back this memory. Thanks! Haven’t thought of that in years.

    Yay, another use for the twine from hay bails! I have to try this.

  6. Terry

    Those are all very pretty. I have not covered jars with anything since I was a kid. We would cover them with tiny bits of masking tape, the use brown shoe polish over the tape.When done right it would look like the jar was covered with old leather.

  7. Deborah

    I like this idea. They are really cute. I am going to have to try it!

  8. Words Of Deliciousness

    This a lovely idea. The jars look amazing.

    I’m not so creative with stuff like that. Yours are pretty and I am content to enjoy the view from here. LOL!

    I’ve never decorated jars before but these look beautiful. I’ve always filled mine with preserves. :)

    I love them all. And, how charming for tables for a wedding reception. My cousin is planning to use something like this for her daughter’s wedding reception.

    Pretty!! Happy PINKness Day!

  13. Susi

    Lovely jars!! I love having some beautiful glass jars in the kitchen.

  14. Amy

    What a great post and reminder to recycle and reuse what we already have :)

  15. Marla Martenson

    Great idea! They make wonderful gifts that you can personalize.

  16. Rose Brier Studio

    Your jars are wonderful! I love all the twine you have used on them. I tend to think of old book pages, how fun to see something new I can use. Great idea!
    Thanks so much for visiting me this Pink Saturday!

  17. Patty

    I just saw in World Market a candle wrapped in twine to give a beachy look. I want to try that! I love your ideas. I like bottles a lot. My sister in law has a kiln and melts wine bottles into cheese servers. They are so neat. My son is getting married in a few weeks and I want to save some of the bottles from the wedding and have them flattened out for a useful memory. Nice post.

  18. LaDonna

    What a wonderful idea! I usually take the label off the jars and load in the dishwasher before putting out in the recycle bin.

    I think maybe I could something with some of them!

    Thanks for the inspiration! So sweet!
