Do you ever have those days where the stars are aligned and by some force beyond you, things just happen? I had one of those days, in a DIY sense. I went to Community Thrift here in Tulsa, and if it wasn’t my favorite treasure box before, it is now. For sure.
Suffice to say, I didn’t get to my pillows today. I instead sorted through a pile of awesome fabric that I found today, that will in turn be used for said pillows. Oh, you just wait.
What I DID do today was this: make some really cute retro-style cups/jars. I found this idea about a year ago, and kept it filed away for the perfect set of drinking glasses or mason jars. Today was the day, I decided, and now I have these multipurpose cylinders at my fingertips.
Here is how it went down:
These are my materials: A set of mason-jar-like drinking glasses, with the tell-tale Mid Century Modern pattern at the bottom, and 2 packs of pricing labels (you can find these at hardware stores, craft stores, grocery stores…etc.)
These are only a few dollars for about 500 stickers. The glasses cost $1.41, for some reason 🙂
I did a “subway tile” pattern for the first glass. I thought mixing up the patterns would add a fun dynamic to the set.
Neon colors work so well against this clear glass. I love the juxtaposition.
I decided to switch up the circle pattern here…
These little teeny tiny circles took a LARGE amount of patience…
And, they are multi-use:
Or use them to hold pens, your hair utensils, cotton balls.
I have to admit that making these simple glasses was one of the most cathartic activities I have done in a while. So, win/win!
I have a HUGE project to finish this week. And I have never been so excited. Stay tuned!
