I decided to make this little creation one afternoon when I was thinking about how I could use up some scrap bits of material. They are a bit messy to make, but the idea is very simple, and I think they look great. You can use them for anything too, I am either going to use mine as pen pots or as little tea light holders.
Step 1: You will need a glass jar, a ramekin or bowl, 2:1 PVA glue to water mix, scrap material, a glue spreader or paintbrush, and scissors.
Step 2: Measure the height of your glass jar and cut your material into strips of that height. I found making my strips quite thick worked better than having them thin.
Step 3: Mix up your glue/water mix and put into a ramekin. Dip in each material strip so it is all covered. Run your thumb and first finger down the strip to get rid of any excess glue.
Step 4: Paste your material strip onto the inside of your glass jar and use your glue spreader to push out any air bubbles.
Step 5: Leave to dry. Fill with anything you wish! You could even wrap wire around the neck of the jar to make a cute little lantern. Or even better, fill it with your friends favourite sweets and goodies for a lush birthday gift!
Hope this little creation will keep you busy one afternoon and I hope you find lots of uses for them!
