Yarn Jars by Janice Ogata

I thought in honor of national crochet month and national craft month, I thought I would combine my love of both and make some yarn jars.

These are extremely easy to make and such fun to have around.  They can be made in your favorite colors and they make great gifts for your friends.  Let your imagination run wild!  You can tie ribbon around the top or maybe glue some sparkle gems on your jar.  The possibilities are endless.

Supplies needed
1)  Glue gun and glue sticks
2)  Any type of glass jar
3)  Yarn in your favorite colors (I used Red Heart Shimmer Purple, Red Heart Super Saver Pretty in Pink, and Red Heart Super Saver Petal Pink)
4)  Ribbon for embellishment

This craft is a cinch to do!!!

Use different size jars to store your knitting needles, yarn, crochet hooks, and scissors.   These can brighten up your crafting area and help keep you organized.  The jars can also be used to store other things too, such as rulers, pens, pencils, paintbrushes.
