French Striped Jar

6:46:00 AM

Ooh La La!

Found this great upholstery tape at a garage sale... 

I knew that someday I'd know what to do with it...
That day was today.... 
I taped off 2 stripes down the length of the fabric tape...

and began painting inside the lines with red craft paint...

I let it dry over night...
 and cut a length...

to fit snugly around this beautiful jar
 with the nicely distressed lid...

A cute little French inspired jar...

  1. I love it when a plan comes together. Looks great!!

  2. I love it, Susan! I like to decorate the jar candles, too. It covers up any label, plus I can make it coordinate with the room I have it in. It pays to have those little things in your supply stash ~ you never know when you might be able to use it!

  3. That is such a wonderful idea. I love the red stripe and the tutorial! What a perfect project, too!


  4. It will look great on my Ikea cart redo ! Very good idea.

  5. Instant upholstery webbing! How fun... It opens the door to a multitude of little projects. :-). sue

  6. I have a whole roll of similar tape but never thought to paint it! Great idea with lovely results. Happy to be following you back via Linky Followers.
