Recycle Starbucks Jars

It started with this cute picture I saw on Dear Lilly....
I just loved the jars......I thought about it for a long......long can I make these....and then it came to me.

Now I don't know why this did not come to me sooner......since I am addicted to Starbucks....but I must admit it took a while for the idea to fall in place.  

Two coats of white spray paint

Some letters from my silhouette machine.....

P.S. Lessons Learned for Next Time:
*Smaller Letters will look better

*I am not sure where I want to put them yet....when I decide I will add some ribbon. 

The idea room
Now the disappointing when I went to Google Starbucks jars to have the picture for the blog to write up the project....there were all these other ideas people already did with Starbucks jars....I guess I was not the first one to think of this idea....
