vivaloves her paintbrush holder

A little leftover ribbon, a hot glue gun, a broken necklace, a clean pesto jar = a paintbrush holder!

I made sure I had enough ribbon to wrap around the jar (I didn’t have enough of the paisley ribbon, so I had to add the plain burgundy ribbon on the top), then I attached the ribbon to the jar a little at a time using the hot glue gun (put a little glue on the ribbon, attach to the jar, repeat).

My paint brush holder didn’t look quite “finished” when I was done, so I added the broken necklace later (you will need some pliers to secure the necklace together on the jar). Some cute alternatives to the necklace: tiny flowers or buttons or rick-rack.

I would love to see how you decorate your jar … please, please, post a link to your blog in the comments section so I can see. Or email a photo: vivalovesblog@gmail.com

We had so much fun: thrifting, biking (taken with my Hipstamatic app.), sneaking up on geese, running in the grass (taken with my Hipstamatic app.), playing with adorable thrifted fabric, eating lemon plums and strawberries, finishing a Valentine’s Day project for school, opening Stella’s nightstand to find her collection of ponies stashed in it, and picking some lettuce from our container garden.

I had a very happy weekend! I hope you did, too. *-love
