I was visiting Merri Melody a few weeks back and saw this cute bubble gum jar! I just had to make it! Isn't it adorable!? Pretty self explanatory....clay pot & saucer spray painted, wooden ball spray painted, glass jar (in floral section), ribbon to hide the glue mess. I added Christmas M&M's to mine. I plan on making 2 more sizes...both smaller. I think it would look cute with the 3 of them in the corner on the counter. Kids would love these!
Well there you have it ladies...
2 things for you to make! Enjoy!!!
I'm so excited, this is the last day of school for 2009!!
