SAW IT. PINNED IT. DID IT: DIY FLOATING JARS



Whoop whoop!
I've got some pep to my step this am because I'm back in the game (aka our Saw it, Pinned it, Did it link-up..where have YOU been?) after 2 weeks off. Time to get Pinteresty!
On Pinterest, there are so many different variations of floating jars/bottles you can do.
 My favorites are the ones that involve wine bottles and mason jars! Of course! 
My inspiration was something like this....

 However, I saw these cutie personalized spoons on Etsy from JJEvensenArt {please go look at all the different options they have...seriously adorable! they also do custom ones!}and a little lightbulb went off in my brain and I knew I wanted to use them in our kitchen with mason jars. 
The spoons are just so cute...I had to have them! Krysh Kitchen and one of my favorite quotes?! TOO fun! I love how rustic and personalized they are and how they give this project an extra special little touch.

This DIY is so simple! It took about 30 mins or less! 
We like that, don't we?
Now that you KNOW you can accomplish this....

What you need:
-2 decorative spoons from JJEversenArt
(or whatever you want to hang your jars with-you can use a multitude of things)
-hanging wire (1 small package)
-2 mason jars (I used 1 large and 1 medium)
-items, like flowers, to fill your jars

Steps:
-Pick your spot on the wall where you want them hung
-In this case, I then had my handsome hubby drill the screws/spoons into place on the wall


-Take the hanging wire and wrap it around the rim of your jars leaving some slack in the back so that it can be hung from the spoon. There's really no perfect way to do this, it's just trial and error. We had to fix it a couple times before we got it right, but it's simple enough to achieve. tip: You guys are total smarties so you probably know this, but just make sure your wire and knots are EXTRA tight so that your jars don't end up crashing down on your beautiful floors! :)

 

 

-Fill your jars! 
Since we have a chalkboard in our kitchen, I wanted a cute way to store the chalk (where it's not just laying on our countertops) and so I decided to use the small jar for it! I might change this when spring/summer rolls around and maybe put a cactus or something in it, but for now-I like it! 
The large mason jar, I filled with one of my favorite flowers...daisies!

if daisies don't make you happy, I don't know what will... ;)
 


And if you weren't here (or missed) our kitchen makeover, here's a picture of our whole kitchen so you get a better idea of the whole space. :)

I'm so happy with how these turned out and how they go so well in our space, especially since they took hardly any time at all!

  16. These are so cute! Although I have to confess, it bothers me that one jar is bigger and says "Mason" and the other says "Ball". You can feel free to hate me now :) I have a little OCD running through my blood!
    Where did you hang these in your kitchen? (I'm jealous of your kitchen!)

  17. A definite YAY! I'm loving the "Krysh Kitchen" spoon! This is a really cute idea. I have a chalkboard idea in mind for my kitchen but had also wondered..."well now where am I going to stick the chalk so I can keep up with it?!" because Lord knows I need one more thing to chase around, ha! Smart project...I love your kitchen :)

I might have to steal that idea when we work on our kitchen. I didn't get my project finished this week, but can't wait to link up next week! :)
