The TRIO !!!

Hello crafty friends..
Welcome to my page today.
I have another interesting recycled kitchen decor/utility item today! So much in love with this one as this is made for a very special couple!
I wanted to give something that they would see and use every day and that would give them joy FIRST thing in the morning. Any guesses and here is what I started out with...
Of course this is not going to make them happy,lol!
Okies...so here is the next stage of the packaging box!
Any guesses here....
Well after this, it became THIS!
Fine...I am going to be out with it now...
Here is the final reveal!
 I managed to make a kitchen caddy with 3 pretty mason jars sitting snugly, waiting to serve their morning beverage!
I had a great time bringing all of these together, making the caddy from a cardboard box needed some alteration, fixing the plaited handles and working the twine around it. I then brushed some white chalky finish paints on the twine for a shabby feel.
Decoupaging these lovely blooms was an easy task with Americana decor decoupage glue and it it was great feeling to see the caddy bloom into a shabby chic decor piece! the ribbed texture of the twine seen thru the tissue is a great sight.
I distressed the edges with Archival corn flower blue and then gave 2 coats of matte varnish which made the caddy real stiff and strong to take on the weight of the jumbo mason jars, lol!
I chose 3 lovely vintage colors smitten, delicate and refreshing chalky finish paints from America decor and sponged in 2 coats.
Once this was dry I made the labels with chalkboard black paint on the lid and the bottle. This was just enough to write “their names”!! Now, that’s my original handwriting, lol! Haven’t used a chalk in so many years...am actually wondering about all the possibilities here!
These colorful jars can be used to store anything and with a wipe be labeled again! That’s cool!
I can’t stop sharing the “trio” happily flaunting their badges, lol! This is such a satisfying project for I have re cycled, re used, re invented, re purposed our daily house hold trash into something that can be the PRIDE of the kitchen now! I am sure they are going to light up the new home!
Here is one last look...This is what I call a FAMILY!
If  you did enjoy reading and seeing this project, do let me know how you like it. It always gives me great pleasure to know what you have to say.
I would like to have this Trio enter the following challenges...
LESSology- hand lettered Love

Until my next Creative Journey,
Happy crafting and recycling,

Cheers!
