Butterfly Jar ~ GIU Day 3
Welcome back to my blog and my day 3 of being the Growing in Unity girl. Today I made an altered jar. This was my husbands coffee jar that I upcycled. I am not sure about you but I always need storage. So these jars are perfect for holding all my bits and bobs. This one is now home for my pencils.
These are so easy to make I just gave the jar a couple of coats of acrylic paint. When it was dry I stamped my butterfly that is from Trust Your Soul SMAK kit. I used black archival ink give it a few minutes to dry. It takes a little longer to dry on top of the paint. Then I gave the whole jar a clear coat of Distress Crackle Paint. Leave that to dry until the paints crackles. You can then just leave it the way it is but I always like to distress my jars so I use a nail file and file off bits paint where you want it to look distressed. Then to finish off I tied some twine around the top.
So I hope you like my jar and I have given you some inspiration to make your own version. Remember and leave me a comment and two lucky winners will be chosen to receive a random bag of Unity stamps.
Thanks so much for joining me today!
