Recycled Craft Jars
OK, I’m not going to lie. Sometimes I purchase things because of the packaging. If I know I can reuse things, I feel like I get my money’s worth. That’s what initially attracted me to Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Scooping Ketchup. OK, the packaging was a bonus but I also liked that the ketchup is an all-natural healthy alternative to the average commodity ketchup… much better for my little Mia! It has half the sugar and half the sodium of regular ketchup! So, after I used up my jars (BTW, I used it in my turkey and vegetable meatloaf…. And it was amazing), I decided to turn them into Recycled Craft Jars for my new craft room (that post coming soon).
Here is what you’ll need:
- Clean Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Scooping Ketchup Jars
- Drawer Knob
- Old Book Page or magazine or scrapbook paper
- Circle craft punch
- Scissors and/or paper cutter
- Double sided tape or glue
First, I cleaned out my jars (a regular and mini… so cute and perfect for glamping).
Next, I cut out an old book page to fit around the existing label; two inches wide for the regular jar and one inch wide for the mini jar.
I also covered the regular sized jar with some decorative ribbon.
Using a circle craft punch, I cut out a circle for the lid and attached it with double sided tape. I didn’t cover the mini jar because the knob I chose has a base that covers the label perfectly.
After the top is covered, drill a hole in the center of the lid.
Insert your drawer knob.
