Here is my re-do on my old Woodwick Candle Jar lid
that holds my cotton balls.
I have more jars that hold my q-tips
and makeup rounds.
Although I love red, I'm a bit bored with the look,
I decided to update them...
Grab some jute twine and white glue
(I used Elmers Glue All)
but don't - I Repeat - Do Not -
try this with hot glue...
'Cause you gotta get your fingers in there
and work the twine nice and tight.
Here is the top, just after I finished
wrapping it - you can see the wet glue but
don't worry - it dry's clear.
All dry and ready for your handle or top of choice.
So, I have a lot of corks on hand -
and have had them a while now,
just not sure what I wanted to make with them.
I'm "Country" so a Cork Wreath would not fit
into my kitchen's Saltbox House theme...
However, they do possess a rustic look, so...
my husband looked at me funny when he found
me in the kitchen cutting one of them in half,
partly because, well, I was cutting a small cork in half...
the other reason is I get that look on my face,
somewhere between an "I don't know what I'm doing"
and that "deer in the head light" look...
That'd be those light bulbs going off in my head,
ideas shooting around in there, like bullets...
"Do it this way... No, do it that way..."
I do hope letting the online world know that
I have conversations going on in my head doesn't
prompt those "people in white coats" to show
up on my front door steps with a special white
jacket of my own ;?
These jars have so many uses other that
holding bathroom items...
Try them at work with rubber bands, metal clips,
tacks, stamp rolls, etc.
Try them in the kitchen - wouldn't a jar
of cinnamon sticks look so pretty?
Happy Sunday, Y'all!
