Jars, Bottles and Canisters Can Be Used To Decorate
« on: May 27, 2016, 04:22:16 PM »

Decorate and Organize with Recycled Jars and Canisters
Large jam jars make nice vase or storage canisters for small items.
Whimsy can be added to the vases, with black self stick labels, available at the dollar stores.  Write a simple title on each label with a white paint pen or sharpie.
The jar labeled weed was from a liquid creamer container. The entire label just slipped off and I used the cap to hold an artificial flower (sun flowers are sometimes considered weeds), and the real weed is growing in the water.
 

Of course everyone hates to throw away beautiful gift canisters and they shouldn’t have to.
I used this Hershey canister next to my coffee pot. 
It has a wonderful small compartment that holds my sugars and the larger compartment
stores a recycled small jam jar and a baby food jar.

The jam jar is my powdered cream receptacle and the baby food jar stores the coconut oil I use on my toast every morning.  These are my needed breakfast supplies, all in a decorative container, at my fingertips, in the morning.

This collectible Washburn and Crosby tin, is just perfect in my laundry room. It neatly sits on a shelf and holds smaller laundry items, it’s decorative and it is also an organizational addition.
Empty wine bottles can be put to functional good use as a drip watering system for potted plants. They slowly deliver water into the soil and since the water isn’t released at one time, the plant may be able to be left alone for a few days. The soil is watered from the bottom and this prevents some of the flying insects from laying eggs on the top of the soil which can be moist from over watering.
