Do it Yourself – Jelly Bean Jars – KKTV follow up

It was fun this morning with Stacia on KKTV 11 News.  Reese ran across the set in the last seconds of the segment…Stacia just rolled with it, she is definitely a pro!

As promised, I am back to show you how to make these wee, little, pretty, jelly bean jars!  Use the colors you like, I went with some flourescent colors mixed with some pastels AND black to shake things up a bit, but if you are a stickler for those easter pastels, by all means, go for it!  The color theme we use here will be what we use for all of our table decor, so just keep that in mind.

Items you will need:

  • Craft paint, such as acrylic paint
  • Glass Jar
  • Sheet Music, Book Paper, Newspaper, any kind of paper
  • Paint Brush
  • Decoupage/Modge Podge glue
  • rub on’s or stickers
  • ribbon scraps
  • jelly beans, baby!

Step One: Paint stripes on a piece of paper, I used a page out of an old dictionary and old sheet music.

Acrylic paint
Painting stripes. I love pink!

Step Two: Let the paint dry, then cut the paper into strips

Step Three: Embellish your paper strips with stickers, rub-ons, stamps, whatever!  I used rub-ons for all of mine.  The best place in town to buy all of your scrapbook supplies is Scrap4Less at Austin Bluffs and Barnes in Colorado Springs!  I buy ALL of my scrapbooking supplies there!  Susan, the owner of Scrap4Less is offering a give-away!  More to come about that at the end of this blog entry!!!!

An 'S' for Stacia...this will be her jar!

Step Four:  Glue your strips onto your jars.  Start with a layer of decoupage on the jar, place the strip, then cover in the decoupage glue.

I got these cute little jars at Hobby Lobby, I think they are on sale NOW for 1/2 off! Mine were $1 ea.
First, glue.
Second, place the strip of paper, all the way around. You may have to trim the paper to fit.
Another layer of decoupage over the top.

Step Five: Once the glue dries, add some ribbon scraps.

Add the ribbon in your choice of colors.

Step Six: Fill with Jelly Beans!!!

This is the best part!

All Done!  I will be using these Jelly Bean Jars as party favors at my Easter table.  They make the perfect finishing touch!  Over the next couple of days, I will share the rest of my table ideas with you!  It will be so fun ; )
