Shabby chic candy jar

Hi there everyone!

Today i want to show you a candy jar i have altered. My oldest daughter came to me wondering if i could help her make a birthday present for her best friend. And i just couldn`t say no. She has never asked me to create something for her, so the pressure to make something extraordinary layed heavy on my shoulders, lol. But i was very proud to be asked. So i just had to get started.

She had this empty candy jar she wanted med to turn into something nice. I`m sorry byt i forgot to take pics before i started but i have LOTS of pics of the end result, lol. So i just have to warn you that this is a picture heavy post. 

A while back i purchased some vintage ephemera print outs on Etsy from a company called By Digital Paper. She has a lot of gorgeous ephemera. And for this jar i used the Sweet Angel bookmarks

 I decoupaged the paper to the jar and glued on the bling strips in between the sheets.

Aren`t these totally adorable? I just looove these images. 

On the top of the jar i cut out the centre of a doily to make place for the handle. I then adhered it to the top. 

Next i put on a lot of trims around the jar and the top. 

To finish it off i put on a lot of different flowers, a resin element and a charm.

As a last touch i gave the flowers a little touch with some glitter glue.

Thanks for visiting me today. Hope to see you back here soon.
