Frosted Spice Jar

I'm back working in miniature! This is just a little empty Tesco spice jar, so about 90cm or 3.5" tall.

I was chatting on the Buddly Crafts Facebook page recently and got sidetracked into ordering the Viva Decor Matt Glass Paint in Mother of Pearl.  After watching how easy it looked on YouTube, I was hooked!  And yes, it is easy!

I taped masking tape around the jar, about where the lace is, and then sponged on the paint, this is just one coat.  Once dry it is rock hard and the jar can be cleaned with a damp cloth, and it comes in different colours too, I might have to try another one!

I've stuck down the two rows of cotton lace with thin red line tape and then added the fancy white and purple ribbon between them.  A rummage in my neglected flower bag came up with this lilac bloom, and I die cut a couple of leaves from pearl card with Marianne Design Craftable die Autumn Leaves.  I found hot glue was the best for fixing the embellishments and added the snips of Aurora pearl string and a little bow.

Here's a view from the side so you can see the lace better.  And I've also fixed a Marianne Design swirl cut from the pearl card and glued down over the frosted finish.

Around the neck of the jar I simple wound some soft string and tied a knot leaving the ends so I could add a little tag and a beaded charm.

Here's a close up of the embellishment.

I hope you like my miniature project.  I have another bit bigger jar as work in progress so once I figure out how to decorate it, I'll be back to share it with you.  I'm thinking it will be a nice T-light holder with the light flickering through the Mother of Pearl frosting .. .. ..
