A Vintage Spring Jar for my Swap partner!!!



Hi Dear Friends,


Today I wanted to share the
Vintage Spring Jar that I
made for Laurie my swap
partner.


The little bird house was an unpainted
little house that I had for awhile. I first
painted it with some acrylic cream paint,
which I had already used to paint the lid
with.

I used some garden themed paper I had to
then glue onto the little house.
the roof is made with some vintage
wall paper.




I used some moss to tuck in where
the flowers were on the lid.
I had bought a set of enameled
birds and used one for this little
house...isn't he cute!!


 The flowers around the jar were
wound with wire on a very small white
picket fence I had that I painted in cream.
I also used some glitter around the edge
of the lid.












Here are some items I tucked into the jar for
Laurie!! We were suppose to include at least
half the jar with vintage items. I had a vintage Hankie,
Buttons, Green velvet ribbon and trim...etc.


 I gave Laurie a cuff bracelet with a detachable crown pin.    
      I also made her a necklace with two sweet little girls in the picture.


Thank you Michele for hosting such a wonderful giveaway!!!

Hope you All have enjoyed seeing both Laurie's Spring Jar and mine!!!

Maybe you can try making one!! There are endless possibilities!!!


Love To All and to All a Great day!!!
