DIY: Fabric Jars

Share it Please
I saw these on Pinterest, and lets just say, I have fallen in love.  They are so simple (and fun) to make, and you probably have all of these materials laying around your home!  They were originally intended to be votives, but I love them as pencil holders.  How cute would these be on your desk? They are sure to liven up any work space.

Small cup
Paint brush
Mason Jars

Measure the height and circumference of your jar, and cut strips of fabric to roughly fit 
In your small cup, pour in some glue (I used Elmer's) and dilute it with a bit of water, mix well. It should be the consistency of slightly thicker water.

Lay your fabric strips down and, using a paint brush, paint the strips with the glue, one at a time.

Place the strip into your jar (pattern side facing the jar) and position it. Use your paintbrush to push any air bubbles out from between the fabric and the jar.

 Repeat with the rest of your fabric. Allow to dry overnight before using.

These will work great as votives (it would be best to use battery operated tea lights instead of real candles), pencil/paint brush holders, vases for faux flowers, or just cute decor!
