diy upcycled baby food storage jars


it seems a shame to throw away baby food jars as they can come in handy for all sorts of things, so i cleaned these out and then painted the lids white. then i got a floral cath kidston napkin and some elmers glue (pva glue) i then painted some glue on to the jar and then placed it on the napkin, leaving a bit extra at the bottom and rolled it around the jar, then i used the brush to flatten it over the bottom edge, then i trimmed the excess at the top and with glue on my brush, i pushed the tissue in to the curves at the top where the lid goes, make sure that you mould it in to this part as best you can so that you can put the lid back on, then i cut some chalk board vinyl on my silhouette machine and stuck the labels on, you could used them for anything, as craft room storage or herb jars ect.
and if you don't have a baby to get the jars you could ask a friend to save some for you, or  you can buy these jars in packs at the shop look in the section where the jar are for jam making.
