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.
