#ThriftyThursday: DIY in style

December 29, 2016

 

This #ThriftyThursday DIY project is simple and fun! A decorated Mason jar has many purposes, holding makeup brushes, pens, or kitchen utensils.

 

I have been looking forward to finally completing this project. However, finding the materials at a reasonable price stalled the assembly. I took a trip to the Northfield store Tuesday night and found everything I needed for $2.99.

 

Mason jar: Obviously this project calls for glassware. Goodwill has shelves of donated glass, so pick your favorite! Some have painted their jars to coordinate with their bathroom, office, or kitchen. Make it your own!

 

Crystal acrylic stones: At Hobby Lobby, a small bag costs $15.99. I found enough for my project four times over at Goodwill for $1.99! I sorted through the colors and chose white and black.

 

Christmas wrapping is in full swing this time of year, so I completed this project with a red ribbon from a gift I was given. Décor around the jar enhances the project’s individuality! Glue fringe, add paint, or bedazzle it for an extra touch.

 

This DIY is practical and cost effective. Visit your local Goodwill to begin your project!

 

Best,

A
