I put my jars in an old Coke crate that the bottom had rotted out of — still looks great as a funky frame! Add in that rusty star hubby dug out of the ground and I am in love! I hot glued those jars down to the crate (kids and dogs again). Now for a coincidence….see those clay pots…they fit into a wide mouth jar pretty much perfectly. Add in some dirt and moss off of an old tree….
So do y’all remember me painting on jars here? Well…I took that one step further….
I took 9 drops of blue food color and 1 drop of yellow mixed with plain white glue. Then dab it on any old jar in a thin coat and let dry. Viola “fake” blue ball jars. Now why would I want to fake em?? You see this is decor for my front porch and: 3 dogs + 3 kids = no real blue Ball jars for porch decor. Fake ones look mighty good though…
I put water in those jars so the moss could continually get water. What do ya think? Pretty good for some old junk! I have many more outdoor projects in the works so stay tuned!
