As you may remember, I set a little project goal for myself this year called Creating in 2014 because I want to get my creative juices flowing again. My hopes for the project is that I spend more time being creative and that I end up with 12 awesome handmade projects, whether they’re big or small.
April’s project is not my own original project. It’s a copied project from the girls at Eighteen25. It’s their Pickle Jar Project and I have been in love with this project since the day I first saw them. It’s been on my Pinterest board forever and I still loved the idea when I came across the pin recently. I mean, you know how sometimes you pin something thinking that it’s really cute or awesome, but then later when you’re going back through your boards for inspiration, you see it and think “why did I pin this?”. Well, this was totally not one of those pins for me and it was time I stopped coveting theirs and make my own. I’m so glad I did! Here is my version of their adorable pickle jars.
This was a very simple and inexpensive project. You can find the tutorial over at Eighteen25.
These are not something I will leave out all the time. I plan to pull them out for the holidays and fill them with candy colored to coordinate with whatever holiday is approaching. I can’t wait to use them over and over again. They are a fun addition to my holiday decor!
