Step one: Use Goo Gone, or similar product to remove labels completely. Clean jars completely, inside and out.
Step two: Use alcohol ink to alter the lids of the jar. I pounced on several coats.
Step 3: Use a sealer of your choice.
Step 4: A bit of gilders paste brings out the texture of the sealant and the ridges on the lid to add patina and age.
Step 5: Embellish Jar as desired. I used decorative tape and staples from Graphic 45.
Step 6: Find some embellishments with similar finishes to display proudly in your new alterd jars.
Step 7: Display your lovely embellishments in a very fun way! Cheers!
