What to do with empty baby food jars?

I loved the jars that the Shanty sisters made over on their blog Shanty2chic.blogspot.com and thought about how I could do it. It dawned on me while in Hobby Lobby that I still had baby food jars from when my little guy was eating it. The light went off and this is what I came up with. I love them. I found the hearts at Hobby Lobby for 50% off and all the wood pieces I had a 30% off coupon so score. I love how they look inside of the jars.

Below is a pic of the things you need to make them. So go make some and enjoy.



Now I am on the look out for some shamrocks for St. Patty's day. Let me know if anyone finds any... Have a great day. :o)
