Christmas Project No. 1 for 2016

Today, I officially started my Christmas projects. A little early?? You might say. Well not really, given that this is strictly a weekend hobby J.

Project no. 1 for the season, kicks off with a couple of small glass containers which used to hold a health tonic. The empty bottles looked so cute lined up in a row, so I hit upon the idea of turning them into my next project.

First, I washed the bottles, removed the labels and dried them. Next, I applied red glass paint with a sponge, using a dabbing motion to create a speckled sort of effect.

I then looked at my box of leftover Christmas wrapping, ribbons and other stuff I’d saved from last Christmas, and used craft scissors and a craft punch to create the shapes which were then glued on with mod podge.

The jars were finished off with red pipe cleaners and white ribbon :-)
