Yesterday I was feeling all bummed out that I have tons of washi tapes and stickers, and no use for them. I've tried card making. I've tried planners. I've tried journals. None of them are for me apparently.
During football season, we go through a lot of salsa and nacho dip around here. I've often wondered how I could reuse the jars. Last year we painted some for Halloween and put flickering fake tea lights in them. So as I was washing out the most recent jar, I was trying once again to figure out what I could reuse them for. My thoughts about this collided with my thoughts of what to use the washi and stickers for, and -BAM- I whipped this up in about five seconds.
I just wrapped a fall-ish colored strip of washi tape around the jar and applied one of the super cute felt turkey stickers from Kevin over it. I did not play around to see if placing the washi higher or lower would look better, or if adding a second strip for a wider band would look better. What do you think? I could also do this with the felt leaves stickers I bought.
What is this jar now for? I still haven't a clue. I mean, the possibilities are endless. You could put candy in it, or use it as a pens and pencils cup, or a container for cooking utensils like wooden spoons. You could put a tea light or votive candle (real or battery) in here for a seasonal luminary. Perhaps some fake florals or greenery? A million possibilities.
They're SO easy to make, and of course now my head is exploding with all the ideas. Problem is, what would I do with a million of these decorated jars? And where can I find more felt stickers? I think Target's Dollar Spot had Halloween themed ones. I'll need to check back there again.
So what do you think? Does it need more washi? Do you have ideas for use?
Let me know! Maybe I'll do a giveaway.
