French Striped Jar


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...

Voila! 
A cute little French inspired jar...

  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!
