Decorative Bath Salts Jar

PriMarilynLy Paper
|
August 12, 2018

My guest bath has a nice tub and I like my guests to have everything they need for a relaxing experience!  Plain jars and containers are abundant at the local craft stores.  Combined with embroidered Joy® embroidered letters, I made a decorative jar to hold some Epsom bath salts.  These salts can be colored with food coloring if you would like to add a little pizzazz.  I left mine plain for a more natural look.


You will need:

  • Joy® iron-on letter sheet - 1" black 
  • jar:  clear glass with flat sides & lid; 5" wide x 7" tall
  • jute cording: 3 ply natural
  • sea shells:  variety
  • glue
  • scissors
  • scoop

  

Instructions:

  1. Wash the jar and lid thoroughly then let dry.
  2. Apply glue around the bottom rim of the lid.  Wrap the jute around the sides of the jar lid while you continue to apply glue.  Continue covering the lid with the jute by gluing from the outside rim toward the center of the lid.  You will end up with a spiral design on top of the lid.

 

3.  Adhere the letters to the side of the jar with an all-purpose glue that works with glass. Adhere shells to the top of the lid. 

4.  Tie a piece of jute around the neck of the jar then knot the ends.  Unravel the ply as shown  below then trim the ends to finish.   Time to relax and enjoy!

Look for Joy® embroidered letters are available in a variety of colors, sizes and fonts at your local craft stores.
