Fabric Covered Baby Food Jars - Tutorial


Materials
Baby food jars
scrap fabric (enough to fit around)
Mod Podge
Triple Thick Brilliant Brush-On Gloss Glaze
Paint Brush
Twine
Hot glue gun

Cut the fabric to fit the baby food jar, paint a layer of Mod Podge onto the outside of the baby food jar, place the fabric over it and smooth it out.
Add another layer of Mod Podge over the fabric.
Let dry.
Paint a coat of Triple Thick Gloss Glaze over the fabric.
Let dry.
I allowed mine to dry over night.

Hot glue the twine around the top and bottom of the baby food jar.
The top is pretty simple.  I just glued the end, wrapped around about 7 times and then glued the other end down.  Wrap it tightly and it should stay in place well.

The bottom calls for a little more time and effort.
I turned the baby food jar over, tide a knot in the twine and hot glued it to the center.  I then started wrapping the twine around the knot gluing as I went until I got to up on the outer walls like I wanted.

Use them to store small craft supplies (buttons, brads, etc.) or place a small tea light or votive candle inside for a candle holder!

This is darling. Love it! There are so many cute things you can put in it. Snacks even for the little guy. I did a fun baby food jar craft too. Have a great night and weekend, Jenn
