How to up-cycle a spaghetti sauce jar
Here is a fun way to up-cycle a spaghetti sauce jar or any jar, really. This little jar will look so cute sitting somewhere as decoration. I also think it would be cute in the bathroom to store cottons balls or Q-tips. Let me show you how you can make one of your own. :
- A jar that has been cleaned. I’m using a delGrosso’s spaghetti sauce jar.
- White chalk paint
- black chalk paint
- Sand paper
- Stencil of your choice. ( I cut my stencil apart for the bee. Here is the link to the one u used- STENCIL)
- Chalk paste or ink paste (chalk paste is water soluble and ink paste is permanent) CHALK PASTE – INK
- Drawer knob ( you can find cheap ones at lowes)
- hot glue gun & glue sticks
- paint brushes
- Squeegee (For the stencil paste)
Step 1: The first thing you will want to do is clean your jar really well. I run mine through the dish washer. If the glue that holds the label on bothers you then you may want to purchase something like goo-gone.
Step 2: Paint the jar and the lid with white chalk paint. You will need two coats, just make sure you dry the jar in between each coat.
Step 4: Once the jar is completely dry rough it up with some sand paper. You can do the same with the lid.
Step 5: Apply the stencil. To do this you will need to use a squeegee or you will ruin the stencil. You can purchase a squeegee HERE.
Step 6: Paint the knob black using some black chalk paint. I added two coats because my know was a white glass knob. I recommend buying a wood knob for this project. Once the knob is dry you can hot glue it to the jar. For extra tight hold I would add a little E-6000 and then hot glue it.
Step 7: For the final touch add some twine around the top of the jar.
