DIY Glitter Jars ♥


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! ♥

Cupcake Liner Flowers Pictorial


Hey everyone! I haven’t posted a crafty post in forever! That is going to change today 🙂 I recently saw “cupcake liner flowers” on Pinterest, and I decided to try them out! I added my own twist to them, and I thought I would make a little pictorial for you guys if you are interested in making them.

Lets get on with the tutorial, shall we?


1. Gather your supplies. You will need some cupcake holders, markers, scissors, circles of cardstock that will fit in the bottom of the cupcake holders, glue, tape, and sparkly things (glitter, rhinestones, etc.).

2. Use your marker to color the rim of the cupcake holder. You don’t need to make this perfect. I like the way it looks when the marker is a little uneven – the flower ends up looking more realistic.

3. Cut the petals of the flower. Do this by cutting out small triangles in the holder. You can make as many petals as you want!

4. Round the edges of the petals (this is optional), and glue or tape the circle of cardstock in the middle of the flower.

5. Create a circle of glue in the middle of the cardstock circle, and cover it with your sparkly things! Rhinestones, or even a button in the middle would look cute. Add whatever makes you happy 🙂

That’s it! I love the way these turn out – they are so delicate and pretty! I also like to tape them on twine to create a cute garland – it looks adorable hanging on a wall or over a window!

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for reading!

DIY Paper Wreath

Hey guys! This wreath that I’m sharing today looks so awesome, but all it’s made out of is paper and a tiny bit of cardboard! I got this idea online. Mine turned out pretty huge (because I used big pieces of paper) but wreaths like this can easily be made to the size of your liking.  I’m contemplating where this beast is going to hang, but I know I want to put it somewhere! If you’re looking for something to hang on an empty wall, you might want to consider making one of these (:

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! (:

Hi guys! Today I’m going to be sharing a project I recently did – this adorable journal made with old jeans! I got this idea from a post on an awesome blog called Life Made Creations. The minute I saw the journal I knew I had to make it. I love recycling old clothing, so this was right up my alley. I really like the way it turned out 🙂 And can we talk about the little pocket that can hold your writing utensils? How cute is that?!

Next time you’re going through your closet, think twice about getting rid of those old jeans!
