Hi, my friends!
You know I’m kind of obsessed with recycling, and one of my favorite things are jars and pots. You may have seen my pantry storage jar already, but I’m always looking for other ways to give them a new life.
But before going any further with the jars I want to introduce you our dog, Pinxo. He was rescued about 9 years ago from a dog shelter and he’s the best dog on the Earth! Here he’s ready to go to the beach 😉
He’s part of the family, so we like to do things for him as well. Here he is proudly next to his crate, where we keep his blankets, toys and all his stuff.
And one day I had that lightbulb moment… I was going to make a treat jar! So I took an empty glass jar (similar to this one, sorry I don’t have the before picture) and removed the label
Then I painted it with the homemade chalk paint with is great to use on glass. It needed two coats to cover it properly, and let it dry. Then I search for a graphic with some vintage dogs and I found this from Retro Vectors with some lovely ones. I added the text “Biscuits Pour Chiens” to identify what was inside if it wasn’t clear enough with the dog image!
Now it was time to transfer my custom image, you can see the whole process here, I promise it’s really easy! Here’s a close up
I used some clear wax to protect it, and it was done. Pinxo now owns a cute treat jar for his own, he deserves it.
