day 21 repurposing a jar

day 21 repurposing a jar :: jar cozy

dress up jars with a jar cozies ! they can be really fun to make & can be for your own storage or for gift giving... the one in the above photo is made from a vintage pillowcase trim, with a few vintage buttons sew on

these jar cozies are super simple, can you guess what they are?

shirt cuffs ! just cut off the cuff of a shirt & slide it on a jar --- instant jar cozy !

almost any coffee cup cozy could work... this is a knitted coffee cup cozy --- a free knitting pattern called Knit Coffee Sleeve

well, this is the last day of the repurposing a jar challenge, but there are many more ways to reuse a jar, including:

:: snow globe
:: picture frame
:: sand art
:: moss terranium
:: storing kitchen utensils near stove top - tongs, chop sticks, etc.
:: displaying a beach (sand, shells) souvenir collection
:: storing paints
:: planter - put pebbles at the bottom of a jar, fill with potting soil, plant herb of flower seeds, keep in windowsill

see you here tomorrow for a Sew, Mama, Sew! giveaway !
