Peanut butter jar organization

navy button embellishment



















This is a close-up of one mixed media jar I repurposed for
marker containment upon my desk.



before


















Cleaned peanut butter jars awaiting transformation.



during



















Aging paper for "labels", done with various inks, glaze
and crumpling action.  



after




















By adding lace and ribbon and buttons, each with some red
in them and aging/staining of paper, 3 different jars become
a cohesive set.

old milk bottle cap with red button



















Do you have a favorite?  The close-up of milk cap jar
makes me think of Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer. 
(teehee)

I am partial to the anchor one because my
Dad was a Navy veteran AND I've been trying to use
this button for years!

  2. I'm torn between the Navy button and the red button on the yo yo.
    Navy button because Dad was Navy and yo yo because I quilt and I like red. Great job repurposing stuff. Love Mom

  5. Oh, Donna, what a great idea! I think what I really like about this project is that not only did you repurpose something, but you made it into a set, just by using the same color. They are all great for me. Loving your creative mind!
