Soap/Lotion Dispenser Jars & Candle Jars (Christmas Presents)

I decided to do soap/lotion dispenser jars for Christmas presents this year with matching candle jars.  I have a previous post on these jars which I made for a silent auction for a local event, LINK.

The dispenser pumps I got from Michaels.  The paint used is mostly chalk paint, but a couple of jars has acrylic paint.  The designs were either stencils from the stamping section of Michaels or Martha Stewart and Plaid stencils in the paint section.  I wanted to use adhesive stencils since they were jars and not a flat surface.  These stencils worked perfectly. I added some burlap ribbon and put word stenciling on them and embellished with flowers.  They were so fun to make.



 The above one is my favorite (because of the colors).  I used a background stencil.
 The above jars I used a sponge to paint a faded look onto.
 Two toned jar.  The bottom portion is a glitter paint.

 I used stenciling (this one is a Martha Stewart stencil) and used a sponge for the effect around the stenciling.
 The stencil used is a border stencil from Plaid.

This stencil is a Martha Stewart stencil

Again, I had so much fun making these jars.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.
