Hi, friends - Here's a quick post to show you an even quicker project you can do by yourself or with little ones. If you decide to do it, I'd love to see some photos!
I will start by saying, in yet another way I am becoming my mother - I am recycling empty glass pickle, olive, and jelly jars. It seems a shame to toss them in the recycling bin and go buy something to use for organizing my bits and bobbles! So to spruce them up a bit and disguise their former use, I decoupaged some fun paper and even some newsprint on the lids. If the food label extended to the side rim of the lid, I glued ribbon around the edge (like the black jars pictured.)
Your little ones can help you trace the lids on paper, cut out the circles, and even "paint" the glue/water mixture on the tops. I used roughly 2 parts White Elmers Glue mixed with 1 part water to stick the paper circles to the lids, and then painted over the paper on the lids with the glue/water mixture to give it a nice finish. I have Mod Podge, but decided to save it for something fancier like decoupaging photos. You could certainly use it if you have it on hand.
