A jar can be two gifts in one, if it's filled with candy, cookies, tea, coffee, herbs, bath salts or other culinary treats or fragrant offerings--and decorated on the outside to display what's on the inside. Jar crafts are great for holidays or any special occasion. Featured are dozens of different jar projects, all with simple illustrated instructions, include a variety of styles including paint, stencilling, fabric, faux glass stain, lighting, etching, decoupage, transfers.

Comments: Jazzy Jars by Browning This is an excellent work for replicating decorative, recycled, plastic and other types of jars. The author describes how to utilize air-dry enamel paints, the surface preparation, basecoats and lid decoration. In addition, the use of acryllic paints is demonstrated for decorating lids. A strength of this work is that it is easy to read. In addition, the many diagrams depict the process of preparing jars in accordance with various decorating techniques of preparation and conditioning.
