Oh, Babay, were these ever fun and quick and super easy-peezy. I have lots of these Baby Food Jars, and I would definitely not consider myself a pack rat of any sorts….however, I did really hate to throw these Little Babys away and then regret it later in the case that I would come up with a brilliant way to upcycle them. Now. I will show you how brilliant I am. Er-hum. Whatevs.
All you have to do is remove the label and as much of the glue as possible. This was the worst part of the task, which is not really that big of a deal. Now you see how very simple this really is. And. Please. Don’t let this “tutorial” mess with your pretty little head convincing it that this is in any way a project only for the Talented and Experienced. Their Cuteness is the only thing that qualifies them for an actual tutorial.
Back to the How To Part.
Of course, make sure the Jars are clean and dry.
Spray some primer on the Lids and let dry well.
Then spray on 2-3 coats of Pretty Paint allowing to dry well in between coats.
Fill Jars with bath salts, hand/foot scrub, body butter, candy, or whatever delights your soul.
Label. I printed mine out from my computer. Handwritten would be adorable, too.
Finish off with ribbon or any embellishments.
A sweet little gift or party favor.
But. Then again. It doesn’t take much to sail my little boat.
