Snow Way Altered Jars

The theme for this month over on the Susan K Weckesser team blog is Craft some Love. The idea is to create a home made gift to give out to someone even a stranger. Just spread the love.

I altered these jars i bought from Poundland and used the DecoArt Chalky Finish Glass Paint to alter the colour. It will take two coats and a day to fully dry before you seal it. I put the lid on a bit too early and took off a layer of paint.

I used Susan's Snow way stamp set to create these cute watercolor tags.

I decorated the jars with anything that sparkled including tinsel trims and gems. I used a hot glue gun to hold everything in place.

For this one i glued pearl beading around the base and used blue gems for a more icy look.

I used big red flat back pearls for berries

I used the Clearsnap Color Pop Mini inks to color the tags and mixed Fresh with Night to get a darker green. I mixed the two blues together to get a lighter shade.

Thank you for visiting
