Anyway, onto the post,I haven't done a DIY post for a bit so i thought i should now:)
Today i had a look around on the internet for good ideas to revamp an old jam jar and came across this one and thought i would share it with you. Its really really simple to do and only takes about 10 minutes:)
                                    You Will Need
  • Jar
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Something To fill it with
I chose to fill my jam jar with cotton reels because i just had them in a box and as they are all beautiful colours i felt as if they should be on display:)

Cut around a heart template
Collect your jam jar

Glue On The Heart
Fill The Jar with whatever you want







 
*Top Tips*
 
  • Find a template of the internet. Its so much easier unless obviously your good at drawing hearts by hand it all depends:)
  • When you add the glue only do a thin line right around the edge of the heart. Otherwise you will be able to see the glue through and it wont look pretty.
  • If you want to add writing to the heart do it before you stick it on otherwise it will be quite difficult to write on


If you don't want to put cotton reels into the jar you can add something from this little list instead-

  • Buttons/Beads
  • Make Up Brushes
  • Pens/Pencils
  • Money
  • Sweets
  • Bracelets
  • Candles
  • Fake Flowers

There we go, if you do make something like this send me a picture of what yours looks  like and i will share it on my blog:) 

Lots of love,
