The Creative Princess: Festive Baby Jars

Festive Baby Jars

As most of you know I hosted a cookie swap this week.  We had a LOT of fun and.....I did not get ONE picture of the swap or decorations set up.

Not one!

I am so sorry.  I have failed you.

I did make sure to take some pics though as I was making my cute festive baby jars.

WooHoo!

Here is what you need:


Baby Food Jars -washed and dried
Ribbon
Scissors
Adhesive Squares

I wanted to cover the print on the jars

Take your ribbon and measure it around your jar leaving just a bit extra.  You will then take your adhesive squares and place on each end of the ribbon.


Remove the paper backing and wrap around jar, pulling tight, then press to secure.


I wasn't happy with just the blue so I added a "Merry Christmas" ribbon as well.


And....that's it!  I love that this is SO simply but adds just the right touch to my decorations.  I also did the same technique to the top of some bigger jars and placed mints and ribbon candy in those.


**My notes: It is much easier to work with the jars if they are EMPTY!  HA!  I didn't think about the ribbon until after I filled the jars, we made it work though.  Also, for an added splash of color I spray painted the lids red.  I decided not to put the lids on though because they still smelled like spray paint.  EW!

These would be cute at baby showers and wedding showers as well.  Oooohh and birthday parties!  The possibilities are pretty much endless.

Also, I am sorry about the picture quality.  I only had my phone as I was doing this and unless the lighting is perfect, the pics aren't that great.
