I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Button jars.....

What do baby food jars and buttons have in common????

Cuteness.....that's what!!!! 

I've been seeing these jars all over the web and decided I could make some for a little storage.

I love how they turned out.  The two larger jars on either end are some pickle jars that I had saved. 

A friend gave me the baby food jars and I purchased the wooden candlesticks and the wooden ball knobs from Hobby Lobby.  

I spray painted everything black ....everything except the jars themselves of course.

Then I used E6000 to adher the knobs to the lids and then the jars to the candlesticks.

Sorted my buttons and ta..daaaaaa.....!!!!

Cuteness and storage ...thats a win, win !!!!

Wouldn't they make cute favors, or small gifties....you could choose paint of any color. Add some embellishments, ribbons, yarns...etc....
 I chose black to match my studio. 

Until later,  sweet babies......Gotta split.....TFL!!!!!!

just wondering what the sizes of the ball knobs are and how tall the candle holders are.
