finial topped jars
Sifting through a box of clutter in my crafting room, I came upon a glass apothecary jar top. I’d set the pretty lid aside a few months ago after moving the oversized jar into the living room to hold some antique treasures.
I’m wanting to set up a little sewing corner in this room, so I took an old cookie tin, added assorted spools of thread and placed the glass apothecary cover on top. The mismatched look whisks me right back to childhood.
So then I started thinking: why not add finial adorned tops to some of the other supply jars here in the crafting room? But of course – fabulously easy and oh-so-crafty!
I wanted the lids to fit loosely, so they will lift off the jars easily, rather than twisting off. So I gently flattened the inside lip of the jar lids with pliers. presto.
Next, the fun part–selecting embellishments. Stacks of buttons. Brightly colored paint. So many sparkly options!
A touch of imagination combined with a few dots of gorilla glue.
This so feeds into my obsession for hoarding jars.
Because there are sure to be more of these fun finial toppers on the way :)
Thank you for dropping by!
