Add KEYS to my list of favorite things. Lately I’ve been adding keys to things almost as often as I do crowns!
I decided to dress up the lid on this one a bit too. I could have just spray painted it with the flat black that I used on all the other metal lids. But, as long as I was trying something different; why not go different with the lid too! I glued a strip of this burlap ribbon around the edge and a punched round scallop paper medallion on the top.
The jar on the left is the same kind as the two biggest jars I did in the last batch. I sure wish I knew where/what they came from! They are very thick and heavy glass, and the lids are brushed aluminum; which I spray paint black.
These are pretty standard glass canister jars with tin screw on lids. With the ribbing in the glass along each corner, I needed to keep the label inside one panel. I miscalculated a bit on the positioning of this rub-on, but it wasn’t bad enough to scrape off and start over.
I had re-painted this formerly red tin embossed heart back when I got it; then packed it away with my Valentine craft supplies. One of the big repro skeleton keys tied on was the perfect finishing touch!.
Usually I like to just toss assorted balls and spools of string ‘as I found them’, into bowls and jars to display and sell. But now that several other vendors at Stars are doing the same thing; I decided to ‘take mine to the next level’.
LOVE how these labels turned out. I was going to use some of this paper ribbon I got a while ago:
And even held it up to the spools to see how it looked. That’s when I got the inspiration to make some of my own. The purchased stuff would have worked just fine, but it was kinda pricey. So I really need to save it for a higher priced item.
I really like my home made stuff just as well. Might even have to make more of it; and sell just the labels! Whaddyathink?!?!
Pondering putting together some ‘bundles’ of assorted spools of threads and string and pillows like this to sell in my etsy shop.
