Free Pattern :: Button Embellished Kitchen Jar - DIY Hostess Gift

“If you're afraid of butter, use cream.” ” - Julia Child

This kitchen canister was given by a colleague during a holiday gift exchange.  I have since made many of my own, some which I've kept and others which I've given filled with homemade goodies.  They make a great host(ess) gift!

You will need:
Aleene's Glass and Bead Adhesive
glass kitchen canister or storage jar
buttons (The ones in the photo are vintage, but any without a shank will do.)

Let's create!

1.     Wash and clean the jar.  If the jar is new, be sure to remove all labels and any sticky residue they may leave.

2.     Arrange your buttons on the jar's lid.  Remember, buttons with shanks won't work.  An assortment of simple white shirt buttons will look fabulous.  Once you have an arrangement you find pleasing, glue the buttons in place and allow to dry thoroughly before using the jar.
