Farmhouse Kitchen Mason Jar Decor

Hello everyone, my name is Madge Gillen. I am very excited to be the guest designer for today. Before I get started I would like to thank Canvas Corp. for sending me the fabulous goodies to play with. I will be using the Farmhouse Collection for my project today. I am going to be honest, when I first saw this line I had many different ways that I was going to use this collection. However, do you ever just have an Aah Ha moment? When all of the lights come on? That is how this project came to me. I was driving down the road when the idea struck! It was simply meant to be. I actually had to pull to the closest Antique shop and purchase an Old Vintage 1954 Cookbook to complete my project.
I know I am leaving you all in suspense mode so let me post a picture of the project so you can see what I am talking about. Then I will walk you through the steps so that you can recreate this if you love it as much as I do.


Now you have an idea of what my project looks like, I can explain the how’s. I knew that I wanted to make something fun and Vintage for my kitchen. I picked up this old cookbook and raced home. Pulling out my Farmhouse goodies I sat down to create this super fun project.

Items you will need:
Canvas Corp. Farmhouse Paper
Canvas Corp. Printed Mason Jar Tags
An An Old (or new) Large hardbound Cookbook
4 Medium size Mason Jars
An old thin belt
Glue Dots
Paper Trimmer
Black Marker

This is a top view of the Cutlery Holder.
Step 1: I took the paper and cut qty 4 4″x9.5″ strips of paper and rolled them so they would fit inside the mason jar. Using the glue dots I adhered the paper to make a roll. I then placed them inside of the mason Jars.

Step 2: I then took the tags and cover the “To: and From” up using some scraps of the Farmhouse paper, I then took the black marker and wrote “Knives, Spoons, Forks and Napkins”

Step 3: Take your twine and cut a long piece (long enough to wrap around the top of the mason jar several times) then take your tag and tie it to the mason jar using the twine.

Step 4: Stand the book so the spine is facing the ceiling. Place the two jars on each side. Take the belt and wrap it around the mason jars and book, pulling tightly so that it holds everything into place.

Step 5: Fill the mason jars with your Cutlery and Napkins

I found some fun wooden Cutlery at a local party supply store to fill my mason jars with. I love how it turned out and it is something that I can leave on my counter for quick snacks (anything to keep me from doing dishes LOL…)

If you would like to use recycled cans instead of the mason jars that could be another option, or you could even use Canvas Corp. other products to wrap the jars in and use for your office or craft room to hold your supplies in.

I hope that you enjoyed my project today. I would love it if you would stop by my blog and follow me on my Facebook page- Create with Scrappin Madge.
