I got these cute little jars as favors at a wedding a month ago.
It was love at first sight.
I decided that they'd make perfect salt and pepper shakers.
And with July 4th coming up, why not red, white, and blue?
I got together my supplies:
Took off the lids and painted the top of one red and the other blue:
Used red and blue sharpies to decorate the sides with fireworks:
And the backs with "July 4th":
Then [using a ridiculously small nail] I hammered holes in the top of each lid. . .
Hot glued some lacy white frill along the edge:
The most patriotic salt and pepper shaker you ever did see :]
Happy 4th of July!
