Decorated Jar

Well I have the second part of my mothers day gift finished for my mom yay!!!

Who wouldn't want some of this Luscious Lemon Sugar Scrub? I definately do!!! Maybe I'll keep this. Na better not I will have to make more for me later. ;)

I found this great recipe here from Under the Table and Dreaming, and there is a link there for the tag there also.

I wanted to dec. out the jar for my mom so if you want to do a jar like mine here is what you will need.
supplies:
Empty Jelly Jar or any other clean empty jar
small doily for the top (I made mine to fit)
Spray paint for the lid
Lace
Ribbon
Small spoon
Old necklace or pearl beads
string
Glue Gun


To start off I spray painted my lid yellow, then added some white paint on top of that and let dry.
Filled up my jar with the scrub.

Put hot glue all over the lid...

Attatched the doily....

Added a bead to the middle of the doily...

Glued the lace down where it attches on the jar and wrapped the lace all the way around the jar...

Glued the lace again where it meets...

Cut a piece of lace 6 1/2 inches long and cinched it up like above continue doing so till its all cinched up...

Tie a double not with some string or crochet thread...

Clip the strings off at the base of the knot and glue to the jar...

Cut off a strand of five beads or gather five beads and glue to the middle of the lace flower...

Looking Cute???

Attach your tag and spoon with ribbon and your done!!!

Pretty simple and looks cute enough to give to mom!!!

Her gifts are coming along just a few more things to add...I will show you those as I finish.
