Fabric Wrapped Recycled Bath Accessories

I ate a jar of nuts from a hotel minibar at 2 am on a recent business trip. In the morning, I was angry at the jar. I wanted it to do more for me than just sit there empty, taunting me with its salty fattening expensiveness.
With the beauty of Jacinda’s Fabric Vase in mind, I brought the jar home, found another glass canister, and with the help of a fabric scrap from my collection, repurposed them into cotton ball and q-tip holders for the bathroom. So there jar, the joke’s on you!

1. Acquire some glass canisters. Or really any canister. Maybe a baby food jar?

2. Cut your fabric scraps to size. Use a sponge brush to apply a light coat of mod podge to the outside of the jars.

3. Press your fabric onto the canister, smoothing out any bubbles with your fingers:

Let them dry for 20 minutes.

4. Apply another light coat of mod podge on top of the the fabric. See my daughter getting in on the action? that is too much mod podge:

Let that dry. If your child does what my child did, then wait until it dries and gently sand it with a fine grit sandpaper. Dust and apply another coat if you want.

5. Spray with a sealant to make sure no moisture gets all up in there.





OK–I enjoy all of your posts, but this was just exactly the type of thing I would do–eat salty expensive nuts and get mad at the empty jars and lug them home and try to do something with them.
