Hi everyone! We have another edition of “How To Tuesday” brought to you today by design team member Deanna Kroll. Deanna shows you how to create an altered oil reed jar. Now wouldn’t that be just the perfect (and yummy smelling) addition to your craft space? Here’s what Deanna had to say “I have a fun and easy project for you all to make. This is nice because you can use the oil reed jars, candle jars, or anything else that is made out of glass that is a decorative piece, like vases or even glasses.”
First you will need to gather your supplies:
- Rub Ons (I used the Tree House Rub Ons)
- Popsicle stick or tool to adhere your rub ons
- Glass jar (reed diffuser jar, candle holder jar, vase, etc)
I decided to use a reed diffuser jar that I have from Party Lite candles. I just hate to throw away the used jars as they can be recycled nicely after the oils run out.
The first thing I did with this jar is decorate the wooden bottle neck. It’s really a fun and easy way to add some personalization and the Pebbles Rub Ons go on very nicely and are easy to adhere. I started out by measuring the rub ons to see how well they would fit around the bottle neck. I had to use 2 different patterns for this. I cut them apart as shown in the photo in order to create a nice border around the bottle neck.
Next, line up your rub ons how you want them to appear on the bottle neck and hold them down with one hand as you adhere them to your object of choice as you can see I did here in this next photo.
As you are transferring the rub ons onto the wood with your popsicle stick or tool, make sure to slowly peel the plastic off to see if all the rub on has adhere. If not, gently place it back on the material (while still holding onto it with your fingers so that it doesn’t come off completely and you lose your placement) and continue to rub until you have the rub ons transferred to the wood.
