Upcycle with Graphic 45!

Hello there!

For today's project I am recycling some old mason jar lids that I had left over from a project. I didn't know what to do with them, but decided to try to incorporate them onto an altered wooden sign to use as decor in my home office. The sign features Graphic 45's Botanical Tea collection and some of the fun Staples Shabby Chic metal pieces! ♥

Here are more photos of the altered sign. Included below is a link to the Snapguide tutorial showing you some of the details of how I pulled this project together.

I distressed the mason jar lids with gesso and acrylic paint and sanded it down a bit once the paint was dry. The lids were a perfect accent under the fluttering butterflies!

I used small left over pieces of Botantical Tea papers from my stash to punch out the butterflies and create the circles on the mason jar lids. Don't throw out those small paper scraps after working on a project! You never know when they will come in handy! ♥ I store all of my small paper scraps in a clear plastic envelope so I can easily see the contents. The envelope is then stored in the same storage container where I keep all things "Botanical Tea". ♥

Here is the Snapguide tutorial:

I hope you give one of these altered signs a try!

Be sure to visit the Graphic 45 blog for more details on this project including the product list!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

hugs & butterflykisses xoxo,
