Tutorial :: Valentine's Jars with Fold Over Elastic Ponytail Holders
I have a Valentine's play date with some girlfriends coming up soon and decided to make each of them a gift. Here's what I came up with. Super fun and easy to make for your Valentine's!
Paint the front of a small jar with a bit of Titan Buff acrylic paint. Two coats. Let dry. I happen to have a lot of little jars but you could use any sized jar. Jam jars, olive jars, mason jars, etc.Cut a heart with a piece of red felt and secure it onto the jar by wrapping it with white thread. Tie. You could also use thin craft wire for a slightly different look but I really love the delicate look that thread gives.
Cut the FOE into 9.5 inch strips, fold them in half and tie the ends together. Trim the ends as needed. (I used 5/8-inch wide FOE.)
Use a pencil to add doodles and words to the painted area.
Note: If you were to go and scratch the paint with your fingernails, the paint would come off. But why would anyone do that? Don't do that. If you were to rub vigorously the pencil doodles with a wet finger, you would smudge the doodles. If you feel like someone might do any of this to your jar, you could do the pencil doodles before you put the felt and thread on and spray some sort of a sealer on the jar, let dry, and then wrap the felt heart on with the string.
