Whisker Graphics September DIY

Last week my September DIY for Whisker Graphics was posted and sadly I didn't post about it here on my blog the same day.  But I'm happy to share it with you today and show you how to spruce up some old glass jars using a bit of Divine Twine.

Only a few materials are needed for this project: a glass jar, bakers twine, and hot glue.  I used an old spice jar I found in my cabinet.  The label was being very stubborn and not wanting to come off so I just used the twine to conceal it.  Problem solved!  Periodically place little dabs of hot glue around the bottle and start placing the twine and wrapping as you go.  I used a similar technique for a previous Knotty Bride DIY where I wrapped jute twine around mason jars.  Check out the picture directions in that post for more crafting advice.  

Usually there are some very beautiful things growing in my garden and sometimes it is nice to bring the outdoors in to display.  These little jars are perfect for displaying small buds and any other recent discoveries.  Or you can turn them into individual party favors for your next small, backyard gathering or hand them out to loved ones as "just because" gifts.  

See the full post on the Whisker Graphics blog and be sure to check out the other great DIYs that are shared weekly.  

I hope you enjoyed this DIY tutorial today.  I'll be back next month with another Whisker Graphics project.  Happy Thursday friends!
