Little decopatch jars

My mum and dad bought me Crafts Beautiful magazine a couple of months ago and it had a free little decopatch kit with it. The kit included a wooden butterfly, glue and some pretty decopatch paper. However, I had been collecting some little glass spice jars and decided to use the free paper to decorate them instead...

This little project only took around an hour and in fact i did it last night when Miss M went to bed. I really like how the little jars have turned out - I think they make pretty little flower vases which look sweet with the fresh pink carnations.

Tomorrow I am going to Glasgow for afternoon tea with three really good friends and Sunday will be spent watching the tennis (of course!) and making a nice roast dinner. I really can't wait! Hope everyone has a really lovely weekend whatever you happen to be doing.

  8. I LIKE! What a fab idea!
    A friend has been saving jars of a particular kind for me and I now have six of them for which I had been thinking of making more crochet jackets, but now it looks like some of them may be decopatched instead. Thanks so much for your 'once again' inspiration!
    I wish you a wonderful weekend and hope Andy comes through with the trophy!

  13. I just wanted to pop back and say I was so inspired by your Neapolitan blanket I had to abandon my trusty hook and start one but in shades of blue. Thank you so much for posting about it. When I finish it I will of course link back to yours.
    Could you tell me which embroidery stitch you used to join the squares. And I agree blocking makes such a difference even though I am a recent convert
