Yep the weekend is here...
Today I have have an altered jar I am
going to use for a centerpiece for the
4th of July. We have a huge gathering
every year on the 4th. It was a holiday
my Dad ALWAYS loved... and after he
passed away I knew I wanted to keep
that tradition going. I am using a ginger
jar that once housed a candle from
Home Interior... Loved their stuff! Once
I burned the candle up I knew what I
wanted to do with the jar. I thought I
had a pillar candle on hand, but I will have
to add that later on... so my project is
minus the candle :(. I took an tied on 3
different styles of lace. The NEW June
Release PINQUE PEACOCK products are
amazing... so using the Fabric Splendid Swirls
and added a buckle w/a flatback and
added it to the center. Next I used the
June Release 3/4 Fabric Covered Buttons
and one of the GORGEOUS Beaded Stick Pins...
along with some mulberry flowers and
leaves, seimans, and a star charm. Next 
I took newspaper and cut out some stars
and distressed them. I used mod podge to
adhere the stars on. Put some blue stones
in the bottom, which I will also leave in
and work around the candle... and here ya gooo!


I hope you enjoyed my project for today
and be sure to hurry on over to
