Holiday Wishes of Joy & Peace to You from GlueArts!


 Joy & Peace Christmas Jar
GlueArts Designer: Lesley Langdon

Intro: When in doubt, go for your Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun. It works on almost anything! I used it in this project for ALL my gluing. It works great for glass and ribbon, even the acrylic tag to ribbon! This project came together super fast, and you can feel good about recycling! We just had pasta the other night and my husband asked if I would like to save the jar, and I immediately thought about decorating my mantel in my new house. I've never had a mantel before, so for me, this is exciting.


Supplies:
Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun Sticks
Webster's Pages Ribbon (Blue Flowers)
Maya Road Ribbon (Blue Grosgrain)
Maya Road Decorative Pins
Trim (FabricLand)
Tim Holtz Fragments Acrylic Tag 
Staz-on (Cotton White, Jet Black)
Unity Stamp Co. (All Seasons Sep 2011 Kit of the Month)
Queen & Co. Blue Pearls
Blue Cord
Sand Paper
Battery Operated Tea Light
White Primer Paint
Shimmerz Vibez Spritz (Jeni B Bleu)
MASON Jar

Instructions:


1. Paint MASON jar with white primer and while wet, spritz with Shimmerz Vibez (Jeni B Bleu). Let dry.


2. Sand down the paint until you reach desired effect.


3. Create sentiment tag by stamping onto acrylic tag with Staz-on Ink, on other side, apply white Staz-on ink, covering the entire surface. String cord through and tie bow. Set aside.

4. Using your Glue Arts Hot Glue Gun, adhere an assortment of ribbons and trim.
5. Adhere decorative pins and hot glue your pre-made tag onto the ribbon.


6. Place battery operated tea light inside and set on your mantel for display.
