I love mason jars. No, I don't like to use them for canning fruits or vegetables but I just like the look and structure of these amazing and practical jars. So when I recently visited Pinterest I came across some artistic uses for these mason jars. And you know me I love to alter things. So, these mason jars are repurposed into memory jars that can hold your fondest memories. My project this month was an easy one because as I said, I love mason jars and I also love to alter things.
For my project, I took a clean mason jar, added some minature pebbles to the bottom. I then added my picture and closed the lid on my memory.lol. I added ribbon trim around the rim and on the top I layered various flowers and a contrasting beaded embellishment. I used jute string around the rim and also some tea-stained tags complete with journaling, dates, etc. A silver heart dangles from the lid and I managed to use a rub-on that says"getaway". For the bottom, the jar sits on a paper doily. Voila! Memories Collected! So if you are looking for some ingenious ways to collect your memories why not try a memory jar.
