I am constantly looking for new ways to use items from my recycling bin. Recently I came across the blog post linked below that has step by step instructions on how to make any glass container look like colored glass. This is a very popular look in decorating these days.
At first I was thinking that it might take me a long while to accumulate any substantial number of jars because I couldn't think of much that came in glass containers anymore...until I looked in the fridge & cupboards that is. And let's face it, recycling feels good, it saves landfill space, & saves money. Plus, projects like this are fun & rewarding when you are done & you get to enjoy them in your home.
Here are some of the items sold in glass jars that I discovered in my home:
* Spaghetti Sauce
* Banana Peppers
* Some canned fruits
* Baby Food
You will need:
* A cheap foam brush
(a regular brush will work, but may leave stroke marks)
* White glue (like Elmer's)
* Glass jars
* Food Coloring
