Project: new use for pickle jars

I saw this project on eighteen25 and loved this idea.  I'm a sucker for glass jars too and this is a decorative way to re-use glass jars.

there are some things i just can't throw away.
glass jars.... are one of those things.

why?  do you ask.
because first of all i store all sorts of stuff in them.
embroidery floss, buttons, pom pom trim, twinery twine etc...

and secondly...
you can make things with them.

i took these jars and turned them into....

these jars.

and of course it's so simple.
i just spray painted my candlesticks and lids.
 (with a grey primer first. helps to cover the writing on the jars)
then used some E6000 glue and glued the jars on top.
fill them up with whatever you'd like.
i found some gumballs and sixlets at party city. love how they are so bright and fun!
then i just added some green shredded paper and some candies to the other jar.
and the fun part is
 i can switch them out with the holidays/seasons!!
gotta love it!  :)
