DIY Glitter Jars ♥

Image

Hey guys! Today’s post is going to be a pictorial on how to make these super easy glitter jars! The pictures are not doing these justice – they are so super glittery and look so cute! It’s a great way to re-use all of those jars from food that you might throw away otherwise. You could also stick a fake battery operated candle (only use a fake candle) inside one of these for a really pretty candle. I tired it and it works great 🙂 I got this from a DIY video that Bethany Mota uploaded around Valentines Day last year. Without further ado, lets get on with the simple tutorial!

Step 1. Gather your supplies. You will need a clean, label-free jar, spray adhesive, glitter of your choice, and random stuff to decorate the jar with. Some ideas are ribbon, jewels, stickers, etc. I used fabric for my ribbon!

Step 2. Take your jar and clean it off, making sure there is no residue left on it from a label.

Step 3. Take your spray adhesive and lightly spray the inside of the jar – make sure the whole inside is covered with adhesive so glitter will stick everywhere. Poor a reasonable amount of glitter in the jar and put the cover on it. Shake the glitter around until you see the whole inside is covered and sparkly 🙂 Take off the cover and tap the jar upside down on some paper so the excess glitter is removed.

Step 4. Cut some ribbon or fabric and tie it around the jar. You can decorate it however you want. It’s up to you!

Step 5. Stick what you want in it – I used fake flowers, as you wouldn’t want to use real flowers – putting water in the jar would ruin it.

That’s it! I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial. These are ridiculously easy to make, aren’t they? I hope you give them a try 🙂

Thanks for reading! ♥

DIY Frilly Hair Accessories

Image

Hey everyone! I’ve been obsessed with making these hair accessories lately! They look so pretty once they are done, not to mention they are so fun to make. I used some scraps of lace and fabric I had lying around to make these. You can totally customize them to fit your style, and of course I had to deck mine out with floral prints and lace hehehe 🙂 I think these would make really nice homemade gifts!  Would you guys ever like to see a tutorial on how to make these? Let me know if you would!

Thanks for reading! ♥

Jean Jacket Makeover

Hey guys! So, I love cutting things up and making them new again. It’s so much more rewarding then going out and buying something, and it’s pretty cool to think that what you made is an original! Recently I upcycled an old jean jacket into this cute girly vest. I’m in love with the way it turned out. The best part is it was simple to do! I just cut the sleeves off of the jacket, cut out a piece of fabric that fit the back of it, hand stitched that on, and finally glued on the lace to give it a more finished look. You could even use fabric from an old piece of clothing for the back of the vest to keep up the recycling theme (:

Don’t throw out that old clothing! It’s just screaming to be made into something new!

Thanks for reading! (:
