Pretty Upcycled Jar

This was a quick project but very much an on-trend piece of upcycling.  Not so much an altered bottle as a repurposed jar.
 
 
Originally containing yummy strawberry jam, I painted it first with PaperArtsy JOFY chalk paint in Teal then added an uneven coat of Dolly Mix - a lilac-toned pink.  This allowed some of the underpaint to show through. 
 
Finished with a length of teal-coloured hessian and a matching button it makes a pretty storage jar for pens, paint brushes or cotton wool.
