Repurpose old glass jars

Above are some examples of taking something that you might have thrown away and making it into something better. The jars with the greenery were old pickle jars that were washed and then had the labels scraped off. Add some decorative filler, tie a bow on it, and you're done.

The jar with the lid pictured above used to have a Gold Canyon Candle in it. When the candle was all used up, I scraped out the remaining wax, threw some beaded garland inside, and of course some more ribbon.

Get creative with what you might have once thought of as garbage, and make it into something beautiful. Hooray for upcycling!
