For the Pride and Prejudice puppy party, I recycled the gift jars from a previous post to fill with milk bones (Mr. Darcy’s favorite!). They were a hit at the party and everyone was asking about where to get them and how to make them. These shabby chic dog treat jars are a stylish alternative to the cardboard Milk Bone box.
- Large Mason Jar
- Decorative Drawer Knob
- Spray Paint
- Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon
- Pink Jute Twine
- Power drill
Drill a hole in the top of each lid.
Spray paint each lid and let dry. To improve coverage, use a spray paint with primer built in. Lesson learned: Off-white is a very difficult color to get to cover the lid thoroughly. I ended up with some metal edges peeking through.
When lids have dried completely, screw the decorative knob to the top of the lid.
Tip: If your decorative knob has a post that is too long, you may need to saw off the excess.
Wrap the wide ribbon around the jar and hot glue in place. Wrap the jute twine around the jar several times and tie with a bow.
