I took 2 regular food jars, washed them & decided instead of recycling, I'd make use of them. The cap was already black, so I didn't have to paint that. I washed the packaging off well. I then hot glued a knob to the top. Then I hot glued some raffia wrap to the body of the jar. Be careful here, you could burn yourself - I did! :( I finished it with stringing some of the painted salt dough ornaments I made a few weeks ago & wallah! A cute container!
