Frugal Jar and Bottle Decorating

Today’s Frugal Friday is brought to you via Katherine’s Corner, one of my favorite blogs. One of her recent blog posts was called “That’s Jarring,” and really got my attention.

You see, Rick recently surprised me with a blue glass bottle he found at a yard sale. I decided to use it for olive oil and display it next to my stove so I immediately put it in the dishwasher to clean it out properly. Sadly, the dishwasher destroyed the shiny finish but I didn’t want to trash it. I’ve been looking for a frugal way to fix it up so I can still use it and I found the perfect way when I read “That’s Jarring.”

Here’s the before of my sad blue bottle:

Now all I need to do is buy some twine, which is on my shopping list. When I finish this project, I’ll update this post with my “after” pics. Here is another sweet and frugal idea from Katie’s post:

So, please stop by Katherine’s Corner to see and read more of her “Jarring” post, including great pics and links to other sites with ideas about repurposing jars and bottles. Oh, stick around there awhile and you’ll also find other craft projects, recipes, giveaways and lots more.

Thanks, Katie, for the great idea!
