.:Tutorial Tuesday - V-Day Jars:.



These probably don't warrant much of a tutorial, but just in case you'd like it spelled out for you, here goes. (The gals over at eighteen25 sparked this idea with their utensil holders.)

What you need:

- jars
- candy
- ribbon/baker's twine/ric rac, etc.
- vinyl/Silhouette


Start off by cutting some vinyl using some holiday signs and sayings. I did three different colors - red, white, and pink.

Apply the transfer paper to your vinyl, and then rub it on to the clean, dry surface of your jar.


Looking good.


Here's all five of my jars. You could almost just leave them like this - clean and simple!


Tie some ribbon, baker's twine, ric rac - whatever you want! - around the rims of the jars.


Add some seasonal candy.


Put them out for display!


I think it's a fun look, and I already had everything around my house that I needed! (Yes, even the candy. And now I won't be so tempted to eat it, since it's now part of my decor. Extra bonus!)
