I think I must be the last craft blogger to make a twine wrapped jar. I've seen them for years, and I always wanted to try my hand at one. When my husband brought some unique juice jars home from work, I knew that it was finally time to try it out. The twine brings a rustic feel, add a touch of lace or ribbon and you have a perfect combination.
Once it was all wrapped, it just looked a little plain. So I grabbed the leftover lace from my Burlap and Lace Mason Jars, and lined the top, then made a quick flower. I shared the tutorial for the flower yesterday.
I think I like this little jar even better. I just love the shape...and the ribbon.
It's a shrimp cocktail sauce jar. It's been kicking around because I have a annoying tendency to keep any container that looks like it might be useful in the future.
Can you guess where the ribbon came from? It's also re-purposed. You know when you get flannel pajamas and they're wrapped up with a ribbon that's tied in a bow? Yep, that's where it came from.
Which jar is your favorite?
