Make A Fancy Desk Set From Trash

Instead of recycling those old jars, try turning them into something fabulous (and useful). All your bits and bobbles will be stylishly organized and you can smile the next time you can easily find a sharp pencil.


-clean jars

-paint (we used chalk board spray paint which gives a nice matte finish and leaves a fun surface to draw on)

-letter stickers (try gold or silver)

-glue gun

-a special rock or two

how to
