Quick and Simple Craft

We are getting ready to head to Pittsburgh for the weekend for a bridal shower/bachelorette party and to see family and friends.  Let’s hope Clark does as well with this trip as he did last time.  I’ve been packing and prepping for the road trip but I had time to squeeze in this cute little craft.

I’ve been slowly collecting glass jars after using up stuff like jelly, apple butter, etc.  I sometimes use them to keep my homemade BBQ sauce in the fridge and a couple times I have used them on the table to hold tea lights or flowers.  They really can be used for all kinds of things.  BUT…some of the ones I have kept look like this:

Leftover from the label.  I have some Goo-Gone which actually works really well, but it’s a pain to use and…I just didn’t feel like it.  I decided to just cover it up with some twine/string instead.  This was a totally original idea that probably no one has ever seen before!!

Just kidding!  It’s all over Pinterest and pretty much everyone and their DIY moms have done this, but it is really cute and easy.

All I had on hand was some kitchen string.  I started with a little dot of hot glue on the top and just started wrapping.

I tucked the end under the second row of string.

I just kept wrapping and glueing and wrapping and glueing.

I wasn’t even very neat about it.

Finished product.

I just put a few flowers from my garden in it.  Doesn’t it look sort of charming?

A cute little vase for free!  And it only took me about 10 minutes.  What do you think?
