Being on a fairly tight budget I eat a lot of pasta and go through an embarrassing abundance of spaghetti sauce jars. When I was taking out my trash one day I realized that the glass jars are actually quite pretty under the label. So I decided to keep a few, unsure what to do with them.
Yesterday, while searching for a nice bowl to put nuts in when I realized I could use one of the jars.
This is how I turned a sauce jar into a decorative holiday piece:
Step 1: Eat a delicious pasta dinner with your favorite sauce.
Step 4: Fill it with something festive! Growing up my mom always had nuts and nutcrackers in beautiful dishes around the house during the holidays, so I decided to fill my jar with nuts. But you could put anything in it .
And voila! You have a pretty, cheap holiday decoration.
