Just jars

Inspired by all the amazing ideas in blogland,  I've recently started collecting jars. Different shapes and sizes of jars,  from jam jars, spaghetti sauce jars, cheese jars to honey jars. Since the lids are of different colors and were not to my liking. So I decided to spray paint them . I made a few lantern jars and some I keep for later use. Perhaps as storage container or as vases for my fresh cut flowers.

I used cooking oil to remove the sticky labels off  the jars.

I sprayed the lids with blue color.

And some metallic silver. I love this color more.

My lantern jars for the garden.

This would be my final "little project" for this year. Just one more day till 2012 and I'm taking this opportunity to wish all my readers,  A Happy New Year filled with joy, peace and happiness.
I'm joining these wonderful linky parties that have given so much inspiration throughout the year.
