I admit, I'm a pack rat. I just KNOW that I'll find a use for certain things - some of those things being baby food jars. I cannot seem to just put them into the recycling bin. And I know that, as soon as I do, I'll find some incredible craft to do with them and I won't be able make it, because I'm cleaned out. This happens to me all the time. (Well not really, but if it did, I'd sure be devastated.) This mentality of mine drives my usually patient husband nuts. We live in a smallish apartment and every square inch is valuable real estate. So, that means I better start coming up with so uses for these puppies or else I may get some privileges revoked!
One really cool idea I found on the web was this one... Yep. I already made a few of these.
Now I'm onto something else... I had this lonesome window by my apartment door that needed a garden. It gets great morning light, but there is a scenic issue, as in this window looks right out onto my ghetto neighbors' porch. Bummer. So, since gardens make me happy, I figured a mini garden would be better than a curtain. But I needed a garden that had height. Here is what I came up with:
It's an herb garden AND a hanging garden - oh yeah. All I did was twist a bit of wire around my jars, add some H2O and plant clippings, and voila! (Although, I still may consider a lacy curtain...)
Six jars down, MANY more to go... Anybody got any other ideas?
