You know that moment where you rinse out yet another pasta sauce jar, in case you may need it for a project, and you remember a cork ribbon roll that you found at Michaels over a year ago! Those impromptu moments where you tie two seemingly unrelated things together and a beautiful project is born are not everyday day occurrences here. As I showed you the other day a lot of these brainwaves end up as bloopers but this one is definitely a win.
Ready for a simple under 10 min project?
To make this cork vase you need;
- An empty Pasta sauce jar or a Mason jar
- Cork Ribbon ( from Michaels)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Remove the paper label from the pasta sauce jar. I didn’t even bother cleaning out the residual glue from the label as we are anyway going to cover it up later.
- Place the ribbon along the bottom of the jar and wrap it around so you get an idea of how long your ribbon pieces should be.
- Cut the ribbon so that there is a slight overlap. I used 3 such pieces to cover the whole jar.
- Again making sure to align the cork ribbon to the base of the jar, dab a dot of hot glue on the glass at the starting point so that the ribbon stays in place while you wrap it around the jar. Now secure the other end with more hot glue.
- Repeat with other pieces of cork ribbon overlapping each piece of ribbon slightly as shown below.
- Depending on how tall your jar is you may need to overlap the top piece a bit more than the middle one as it should end at the same height as the jar’s top.
- Fill with your favorite flowers!
Easy and simple, right? Looks great on our coffee table right next to the cork ball I made last year. Do you that was a Christmas ornament that I repurposed?
I love the texture and natural feel it adds to our Fall decor.
Do you save empty pasta sauce jars too? What do you use them for?
