day 20 repurposing a jar

day 20 repurposing a jar :: advent calendar 3

this advent calendar is a table centerpiece in the shape of a Christmas tree, with a star on top (the star of Bethlehem), but if you wanted, all 24 of these little baby food jars could be lined up on a fireplace mantle, wouldn't that be cute !?!

supplies needed:
24 baby food jars
decorative papers
paper cutter
mod podge
sponge brush
chalkboard paint

with the decorative papers cut out 24 pieces (these are about 1.25" X 7.5")
with mod podge & sponge brush adhere the paper pieces to the glass jars
paint the lids with chalkboard paint, then with chalk write the numbers 1-24 on the lids

voila !

see you one Monday for day 21 ! (the last day of this month's repurposing a jar challenge) have a happy weekend !
