~ fancy jars & crochet stuff ~

I've seen this idea on Pinterest for a while now, and I thought I would give it a try. 


All you need is empty jars, candlesticks purchased from the Dollar Tree, paint and some E-6000 glue. 

Glue the jars to the candlesticks and let dry.  Paint the tops and then fill with whatever your heart desires.  I filled mine with crafty stuff.

 
Can't get any easier than that.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the crochet front:

I've been working on a scrappy blanket for me.  This will be an on-going project since I don't have enough scraps to finish it.


I also started an aqua and grey baby blankie.  I never would of thought to put those colors together, but while crocheting on the scrappy blanket these colors ended up being next to each other and I looked at it at thought it was so pretty.  Luckily I have 1 skein of each color to make a blankie with.  Sometimes it's good to have a yarn stash.  :)

  2. The colors look great in your scrappy afghan. I like the way you just kept going by joining colors in the middle of a row.
    Baby colors are no longer pink and blue. This will make a beautiful blanket.
    I made some 'redneck' wine glasses with Mason jars and candlesticks. I buy the candlesticks at yard sales for 25 cents.

  3. I haven't been moving my hook much for the last couple of weeks. Hopefully I will get back into the swing of things this week. You know I have seen so many ideas with candlesticks, redneck wine glasses, the jars, quite neat. I don't have the shelf or the table space to have that kind of storage, but I like them.

  4. Love those jars. They're a very cleaver idea. I can see making them and filling the jars with treats to give as gifts. I like your scrappy afghan too. I'm slowly using my scraps to make an extra thick rug for the little dogs to use to keep warm on the floor in the winter.

  11. So cute jars, i know i would have filled it with buttons too :) The blue and grey blanket combination is good...infact grey goes very well with so many colors i feel, but we are afraid to experiment as grey = dull in my mind! Happy hooking and have fun!

  16. Love your inspirations...but I have to ask, HOW did you make that self-changing yarn cake???

    1. Thanks Joyce. To make the scrappy yarn cake, all I do is tie the ends of the scraps together and then wind them on my yarn winder. I start with the shortest scrap yarn first and then progress to the longest lengths. :)

  20. I've just stumbled upon your lovely blog, I have been scrolling backwards reading it and taking in all the fantastic crocheting!! I just wanted to say this scrappy granny blanket is fab! Firstly I love that it is a rectangle and secondly the colours are looking fab! (I bet you have finished it by now though!!). I like doing the occasional scrap or random coloured blanket, like you have said you can see how colours work next to each other that you would have never have planned!! I will add you to my bloglovin' fed and then I can keep up with your latest projects. Emily. x
