Hi All! Have you got all your Christmas projects completed? Or are you rushing around like myself? If you’ve been following along with me then you know that I have a love for repurposing empty jars. So today I am sharing a Joy – Repurposed Holiday Decor Jar which is made from an empty glass jar and hot glue.
Not knowing whether hot gluing the word “Joy” on the jar is going to work or if it will come right off after painting and sanding.

Repurposed Holiday Decor Jar
Starting with a clean glass jar I slowly wrote the word Joy on the side of my jar using my hot glue gun (which I absolutely love). It took two tries to get it how I wanted it. Not perfect but it works.
Then I painted the outside of the jar using white chalk paint. It took two coats of paint. Be sure to work the paint in around the word Joy.
Once dry I used some sandpaper to distress the jar giving it the rustic style I love. Going over the hot glue lettering gently so not to knock it loose.
Wanting to add some sparkle I next used Ceramcoat glitter ice to give the jar some sparkle.
Now all that’s left is to add some twine, small cinnamon stick, berries, and Christmas greenery.
I cut the twine long enough to wrap around the jar twice and to tie a bow.
Ta-Da it worked! My repurposed holiday decor jar worked. The hot glue is staying put and I now have a pretty Christmas jar.
