Pretty Storage

This DIY is all about pretty storage. I don't know about you but I love to have everything in little jars. They look even better when they are pretty and decorated!
This is what you'll need. The blue jar is one I did previously with paint and glitter. Now i used it to hold my glue!
I used Elmer's glue for this. For me its not the best glue for tissue paper because it can rip it easily and causes some ripples. But I used it anyways. I watered it down so its easy to spread around.
Then cut out your shape. I used this nice mustard yellow as my base colour
Then add some glue to your jar and stick it on. Make sure to smooth it out as you go.
Then cut out another design that you want. Or you could just leave it plain. I cut out my signature xoxo :)
then add some glue and stick them on. You only need a tine amount of glue for each letter.
Now add an entire coat of glue all over to seal it all down. be gentle, i learnt that the hard way. Then add some glitter, sequins and whatever you want. You could even add a picture or two!

Happy storing!

p.s. after it was dry I took my sharpie and sharpie some words over it and hearts and stuff like that :) be creative with it!
