Recycled jars and mod podge craft

HI there!~

What’s shakin?’

Today, I am sharing a recycled jar and mod podge craft! Dollar tree style of course!


There is always something shakin over here.

You have seen my upcycled can projects a time or two.

I don’t believe I have ever done a  recycled  jar craft before.

I saved this spaghetti jar one day and figured down the line I would do something fun with it.

I love old cookbooks.

Even though, I don’t love to cook.

This particular cook book is especially cute because it was all hand written with some cute graphics inside.


I tore some pages out

And got busy with a mod podge project.

I always get so anxious for it to dry…

in fact I start taking pics before it is even dry.

Love the graphics and different variations of hand writing

Now you can’t forget my dollar tree cupcake liner carnations.

They were the perfect fill for this jar.

embellished with some ribbon, twine .

On top of my Plate is full


makes the perfect


I have more coming up so stay tuned.

I am on a Valentine roll around here.

Best part is

FREE, or just a Dollar at the dollar tree.

Can’t for the All things Valentine’s dollar tree party coming up.

 All I can say, is at the end of the day!

Being Frugal is fun!

See you tomorrow night for the Newbie party with a twist round up and then later on


PARTAY itself.

    Ooooh, can’t wait for the Valentines party! I hope you don’t mind but I added it to LinkyHere’s “seasonal page” so I can spread the word about it thru LH’s social media sites :)

    I love the jar. The recipe graphics are great! I always love a good Mod Podge project. My husband asked me this weekend what it was. ?!?? How long has he been with me? Is that grounds for divorce? Lol! I kid. I love the cute carnations you made too!
