Going Green for the Red, White, and Blue!
Here is our green craft for the week! I did not buy anything new for this project!
For our green projects, I use only things that I already have lying around.
I get to make pretties and save a little bit of room in the landfill!
Jars: Any size you like (Label removed and cleaned inside and out)
Adhesive cardstock, stickers, or adhesive vinyl
First, decide what you are going to use for your mask. I used adhesive cardstock but you could use stickers, or adhesive vinyl. I used the Cuttlebug to die cut these stars and a straight cutter for the stripes.
Design your jars by firmly pressing your masks into place. Be sure to rub the edges to create a tight seal so no paint will seep under.
Use a relatively dry stippling brush and dab a small amount of paint onto the areas you want colored. If you want to completely cover the area it may take several coats. I was looking for a more textured look. Let it dry completely!
Carefully remove the masks.
Use wire to create a hanger as shown above.
Take some scraps of fabric, ribbon, fibers, whatever you happen to have to "Kick it up a notch!"
Place a candle inside and light them up!
Such a pretty and earth friendly way to celebrate our great U.S. of A!
