Mason jar crafts have become a phenomenon over the past 2 years, to say the very least. I, for one, am a huge fan of incorporating them into my home decor whenever possible. You combine mason jars with my papercrafting obsession, and it is almost more excitement than a blogger like me can withstand. Well, those two worlds collided for me in this Sizzix Canning Jars Die by Eileen Hull. Today I am sharing how I used it on some recycled cardboard and fall patterned scrapbook paper to make this fun garland adorning my headboard.
I told you about Eileen Hull’s Picket Fence Sizzix line a few months back, and am having as much fun with it as I predicted I would!
For this project, you will need:
Fall or other patterned scrapbook paper; I used Recollections Harvest Delight
Jute or other twine
Tim Holtz Distress paint Silver
Die Cut the larger jars out of paper and cardboard
Adhere paper to cardboard with Paper Cement or favorite adhesive
Cut tops out of corrugated cardboard and adhere to jars with 3D foam squares
Paint tops with silver distress paint, or leave as they are. they look cool either way!
Ink edges with distress ink on foam applicator and attach to twine with clothespins.
I love my garland, and have several more projects in mind for this die alone. Make sure you visit Eileen at her blog for tons of inspiration! You will want to set aside a chunk of time and be ready to watch your creative project to do list grow!
