DIY Upcycled Glass Jars

For my first DIY post of the year, and my first using a video tutorial format (more on that in a future post) I thought I would share a little upcycling project. This idea is perfect for recycling old glass jars and you can even use leftover Christmas giftwrap as part of the decoration! Of course, there are so many different ways to recycle and decorate old glass jars but for today's post I've opted for a simple design using old book/catalogue pages and tissue paper.

Before I jump into the tutorial I thought I would just mention that, being a video DIY newbie, I only realised after filming and editing that it would have been better to show a more colourful example on film as it would have shown up better - videos are set to be a huge learning curve so you'll have to bear with me! Anyway, here's the DIY...

Like I said last year in my Book Jar DIY post you can use these handy decorated jars for anything you like. From inspiration jars to hold day out ideas or to help you choose which book to read next, or just simple storage solutions and tea light holders - with a little imagination you can find a use that best suits you. I have a specific plan in mind for the jar seen in the video above which I'll be sharing in another post this week so keep an eye out for that!
