Mother's Day Craft, Baby Food Jar Vases

What does every mommy of a new baby have around? Baby food jars. Lots and lots of them. And a crafty mamma also has spray paint.

Totally free. That is, if, you have spray paint on hand. Or you can run off to Michaels to buy some. While you are there you could pick up some craft paint (I've seen these dipped in paint as well) or rhinestones, foam letters, yarn... I'm just working with what I already had on hand.


Oh, and a baby who eats baby food from glass jars, not sure this would work with the plastic ones:)





While working on a top secret project for my son's room, I sprayed these as well.

Then he decided to play soccer around my projects. And baseball. This is him in downward dog; they teach yoga in preschool, don't you love it?

I also decorated one with washi tape, who can resist that?

These are so sweet I love the gold. Iv been collecting my little food jars to use as vases as well but my only problem is running out of cupboard space in my tiny little kitchen!

I love these. I kept some baby food jars because there are so many fun crafts you can use them in.

Like someone else said, those would make great small centerpiece holders at a shower or little get-together!
Way to use what you have!

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

Hmmm ... in the downward dog photo I think I saw the not-so-top-secret-now project!

Love this clever idea! I may need to use pickle jars, though. My baby food jar days are long gone ...

Gorgeous! Love clusters of things. We actually do the baby food in the pouches. No fun bottles to reuse.

Cute, simple, and small -- my favorite kind of project! What sweet little touches these would make. Now, if I could borrow someone's baby for a bit... :)

Very, very cute! My favourite is the one with Washi tape :) It's like burlap, it makes everything better!
