Admittedly, I am not a very crafty person. I can handle the easier DIY ("do-it-yourself") projects, but anything that's more complicated than that ends up looking like a kindergarten project. That is probably the reason that I have refrained from featuring any DIY projects on A Paper Proposal. I'd never feature a DIY that I didn't think that I could successfully replicate myself.
In honor of the impending holiday, the talented ladies over at the always creative and colorful blog, eighteen25, are allowing me to share one of their Easter DIY projects with you guys. Even better yet, I think this one, I can actually do! The "Pickle Jar Project" is a great way to display your colorful Easter candy or dress up an Easter brunch table, but what I love most is that these clever little suckers could work well with just about anything. Include a cluster of them on the sweets table at a wedding, fill them up with art supplies or add some impactful height and drama to your table centerpieces. Pretty, easy and versatile!
Glass pickle jar with lid
White spray paint
Glue (E6000 recommended)
1. Remove label from pickle jar and clean thoroughly.
2. Paint jar lid with grey primer to cover any colors and writing. Once dried, spray paint lids white.
3. Glue top of the candlestick to the bottom of the pickle jar.
4. Allow glue to dry completely, and then fill with whatever candies tickle your fancy. Jelly beans, gumballs...the more colorful, the better!
Big, big thank you to eighteen25 for sharing their Easter project!
