Repurposed Jam Jar

We had a lot of sweets left over from our halloween party, so I thought today I'll decorate an empty jam jar that we can use to store at least some of them sweeties. :)
Here's the before:
I didn't even remove most of the label glue or left-over labels.

I tore up a piece of mulberry paper and decopuaged it all over the jar and the lid, and added 2 coats of varnish over it.  I glued on a butterfly and took 3 pieces of ribbon, plaited them together and tied it around the jar and glued 2 beads on the ends of the ribbon.
Now it's got a neat little home on top of one of our dvd cabinets.

Mmmmmm......Nut Puffs.......

Nice jar! I was just going through some baby food jars this morning! I bought a baby food jar stacker from the thrift store and want to repurpose the jars for glitter and my little punchies in my craft room. Thank you for commenting on my little notebooks!
