Synopses & Reviews
A jar can be two gifts in one, when it's beautifully decorated on the outside and packed with sweets, tea, coffee, herbs, bath salts or other thoughtful offerings. As the vibrant color photographs in Jazzy Jars show, there are endless techniques for embellishing a simple container. Featured here are dozens of different projects, all with illustrated instructions for painting and stenciling the jars, or using fabric, faux glass stain, etching, découpage, and rub-on transfers. Many will brighten the holidays, including a Christmas canister filled with ornaments and adorned with maroon ribbon, a silver heart charm, silver bullion, and pine rope. Others are for every day, such as a Cowboy Brownies Jar, Stained Glass Floral Jars, and a "Magic Beans" jellybean jar with a fun polymer clay lid and list of flavors. Instructions for making labels and gift tags, plus a variety of delicious recipes, complete this fabulous package.
