This project came to my mind when I saw glass jar (just like a jam jar) with a pretty cap in a local mall. I was wondering why people are buying empty jam jars/bottles with a pretty lid. I mean you can recycle the ones you have already have at home!! So I came home and decided to do it myself.
To do this project,all you need is a used, empty, cleaned glass bottle/jar. I used a jalapeño bottle and acrylic colors. Then remove the paper label. I used a bottle without any engraving or labels embossed on it.
I painted it 2-3 coats. Let it dry for 1 hour or more..
Decorate it whatever design you want using a stencil or painting directly..
Store your craft or food items in your pretty jar..
It's hard to tell if it is reused bottle or I bought a mass produced one from the mall:)
Recycling is good..It's very very good.. Just take a look at the pretty things people have created using recycled bottles..
