Altered Jars

Altered Jars

During my time in Virginia, I really focused on collecting jars and altering them. I gave most of them away in monthly drawings. It was a lot of fun. I hand stitched the burlap and flowers so they would last. I find that glue does not hold up and I have tried various types of adhesive. If you know of one that you like and prefer, please let me know. The stitching is very time consuming, but I want my items to last.

I finally cleaned out my jar collection and only saved a few of my favorites. When I say a few, I’m still close to 30 plus jars. I heard the term organized hoarding the other day and I like that description.

Do you collect jars? How many do you have?
