    Default Decorate those jars.... Make them Unique !!!

    I finished a few I started a few days ago and they turned out nice.....
    I had a couple of snowmen about 3 inches tall. I hot glued them to the top of the jar, Used delta decorative snow on the lid. This stuff dries rock hard and will help hold the piece on and decorate the top as well.... I am going to put my snowman soup (Hot Chocolate) recipe in them...

    I had a couple small (2 inch) ornaments that where flat on the back..... I put some delta deco snow in about a 4 inch circle and stuck the ornament right into it.... It looks like a snowy medallion on the front of the jar.......

    Tip: I ran out of good old expensive delta deco snow, I mixed together.... 1/4 cup of spackle, 1/8 cup of white glue & about 6 tbsn of white paint... add a pinch or two of extra fine white or clear glitter.... It worked !!!!

    Use your imagination, use any kind of objects....
    Santas, cows, chickens,
    Theme them if you can to the jar mix....
    examples.....
    a little garden watering can for dried veggie soup....
    A gingerbread man for gingerbread mix.....
    a black and white cow for a black & white bean soup.....
    a pig for ham and beans......
    or just rename your mix to match your object and recipient....
    Got a Disney lover on the list.....
    Snow white bean soup....
    let your imagination go and have fun..... This is the only way to do frugal crafts anyway......
    also.... try tying something on the jar w/raffia or jute,
    a tiny garden tool for veggie soup,
    a whisk, a honey dipper what ever goes with your theme or new recipe title.........

    Post any ideas you have.............
