Crochet Covered Jars - Mother's day gifts or whenever gifts!

Well I took a break from all the scrap busting this week! I wanted to do something else so I decided to cover some jars with some really bad crocheting.....as you can see from the pics below I'm not the worlds best crochet-er.  I did get the affect I was looking for though. This is what I will be making for Mothers day gifts for my mom, sisters, M-I-L and S-I-L's.  


I have about 100 empty jars and bottles in a spare closet waiting for future crafting plans.  When I get to them is another question and theHubs is getting a bit worried with all the jar hoarding going on. "Men", sometimes they don't understand.


I know the big thing that's going on around blog land is painting and tinting glass jars, but I don't want to do that just yet.  I don't want to do it because everyone else is doing it. Sometimes I want to be the oddball when it comes to crafting. ('',)  Yes, I know I'm not the first the crochet cover jars, but I'm showing you the jars that "I" covered. 


I used some yarn that I had bought at the $ store...and used some jars from my stash and cut some knock-out roses from my backyard.  Doesn't it feel great to be able to use what you have and not go out and buy anything.  The jars can be used as plant holders, candle holders or what ever you decide to do with them.


I hope everyone has a great week!  Look out for me I'll be linking up to lots of parties this week.  Check out my I ♥ to Party links page to see where I link up and where you can link up as well.

One of the places where I'll be linking up at is Craftbotics



Rosie is having a month long link up, so what'cha waiting for go over there and link up your AWESOME projects.  She also has co-hosting opportunities if you email her.  Go and check out her cute and crafty blog.

  3. Hello Fifi,

  4. I can crochet too but since I had my son, I prefer knitting. I should do some again.

    I'm stopped by from Creative Monday blog Hop. I'll be glad if you could stop by too ;). Cheers

  21. Those turned out adorable. What a great idea. They really brighten those bottles up. I used to crochet when I was much younger but life got so busy that I haven't done it in quite some time. Maybe I need to pick up my crochet hooks again.

It's funny I just purchased two crochet covered jars, and had never seen before, now I've seen it twice in one week. A really clever and cute idea.

  39. Hi Julie,

    sorry I didn't use a pattern, Just did a little square/circle for the bottom then went round and round the bottle till I got to the top.
