I Made: DIY Twine Glass Jar Tutorial

We eat pasta at home pretty often and I keep the pasta sauce jars because you know, they are quite big and made of glass. Seems like such a waste to chuck them so I hoard store them with grand plans of upcycling the jars into something pretty.

I made this very simple twine jar recently while watching TV to hold some of my kitchen utensils. It really is so easy and requires some twine {duh!}, double sided tape, a glass jar and 30 minutes of your time.

All you need to do is just stick a few strips of double sided tape on the side of the jar, and twirl the twine tightly around it. Easy right? You can glue later to make them hold stronger and last longer.

I wanted to dress it up a bit but had a hard time deciding on the pendant to hang around the jar neck. Finally settled on a diamante-studded bead and red satin cord leftover from the boy's macrame beads bracelets materials. How do you think it looks? :)

At least it matches my little Junior Masterchef's cute Sailorette in Red dress from Precious Junior haha. If I want to change the jar pendant I can take this one out and make into a necklace for her. Who says you need to wear pretty just for going out? :P This online store sells affordable clothes for little ones and for every item sold, a dollar is donated to charity. They just brought in new items like the Ribbon Skort & Apple Crossback Set so do have a look!

Here are some other things I made

* Disclosure: Sailorette in Red was provided by Precious Junior for blog mention. All other accessories belong to me and all opinions are my own.

I used to keep all our jars too, thinking I would surely do something with them, then one day Dave got the shits at all the empty jars and tossed them! So annoying and I always remind him when he says we need more storage!
