When I was planning my wedding earlier this year, I was collecting lots of jam jars to use for my flowers. I ended up with lots of leftover lids from the jars, but couldn’t bring myself to throw them away as I knew there must be a crafty project for them somewhere.
This project is inspired by the giant paper confetti that I’ve seen a lot recently. I’ve seen it either stuck to walls in random patterns or turned in garlands (see our paper disc garland tutorial here!).
The circular shapes of the jar lids reminded me of this, and the advantage of this garland over the paper version is that it can also be used outside!
here's what you'll need...
- A selection of jar jar lids
- 3-4 different colours of Plastikote spray paint (or any spray paint suitable for metal)
- A gimlet tool
- Bakers twine or string
- Darning needle
- Washi tape (optional)
