Cute Jelly Jar Recycle
On one of our trips to Paris, at a small cafe, I was served a tiny jar of jelly with my breakfast. I fell in love. Well, as much as one can with a jar of jelly. A couple days later, I saw some at a local grocery store around the corner from our Paris apartment and decided to bring some home. I put them in baggies and wrapped them in my clothes, and hoped they’d make it back safely.
Originally, they were supposed to be a special treat, but in time, I gave up all other brands and started eating only Bonne Maman jelly. The biggest reason was because I love the taste. Another reason was because it is made with natural ingredients that I could actually read and pronounce, and no high fructose corn syrup! Win/Win!
Note: While I used to carry these back from France or have them shipped ~ I now find this brand in Target, Walmart, and a few other grocery stores.
The jars were so cute with their special angled shape and their gingham tops that I could never bring myself to throw them away. After I had collected about a dozen ~ I decided to try something I’d seen in passing a while back on Pinterest.
I had a few leftover crystal knobs from another project, so I decided to use those. I used my trusty battery operated black n decker drill and drilled holes in the middle of the very thin lids. Added the knobs and hardware.
