Once I had it glued together...(it took a TON of glue sticks)...and I have come to the conclusion I need to invest in a nice BIG glue gun. This little glue gun stuff...nope...not gonna cut it.
Any-whoo...after I glued it all together, I started painting it. After that, a couple of coats of varnish (modge podge actually...L O V E...LOVE the stuff) and it was almost done!
Uh-huh...I know...I'm seeing what you see...That little glue line around the base right? Well...I got a solution for THAT too!
I got this HUGE hurricane jar at the Dollar Tree...gotta love spending just a buck! WEEeeeeee!! Does anyone besides me spend more than $20 when you go into the Dollar Tree? Hmmm...come on now, be honest!
Here's the finished product. I don't think I'm going to keep what I have in it. It was late and I just put something in for looks so I could get a photo. I'm working on some fun fabric and glass glittered Christmas balls right now. So when they are done, I will probably put those in there, along with some lights or something. Not sure. But this would work for every season! And if I get tired of THIS jar...I can put a candle or another of the zillion jars I have
Close up...whatcha think? I'm LOVEing it!
Grab yourself some terra cotta pots and see what you can create! I think I spent a total of $0 on this project! I had everything already on hand...:) Gotta love spending no money to get something to decorate your space!
Be sure to visit my linkie parties...:) Got them listed below.
