I don't have many dies that seemed right for this so I have used peel offs. The image isn't as prominent as a die cut as peel offs are quite thin, but it does still work. So if you have any peel offs sitting around feeling a little unloved then this could be another way of using them, it also means that you don't have to have a die cutting machine.
I put the peel offs on the clean jar and then covered them with my trusty aluminium tape, I have done lots of similar projects with this tape and I love it. I bought my tape locally, it's used for temporary exhaust pipe repairs, sealing heating duct joints and car panel repairs.....oh, and crafting!!
As before I have used some cereal packet card to cover the thread on the rim before adding the tape in small random patches.
Once the whole jar was covered I used black acrylic paint to cover the jar, left it for a few minutes and then rubbed some off to give me that worn look.
The beauty of using a glass jar is it can still be used for flowers, paint brushes, etc. and the water will not damage the tape. This jar will look just right with some origami flowers in it.
I would like to enter this jar in the following challenges:
