Altered Starbucks Mocha Jars

100_2007 Hi!  Long time, no see, huh?  Well…I’ve been crafting like a crazy woman and am just now getting things under control.  I’m sorry it’s been so long, but now that I’m on a roll, there will be more frequent posts.    This is one of the crafts for the Holiday Bazaar.. I saved some Mocha jars, stripped the labels, cleaned them up and then added embellishments.  Finally, just fill them with some yummy treats, and they are good to go.  I think they make a perfect teacher gift, or, in my case, the newspaper girl’s treat.  Plus this year, I’m going to surprise some special people at my favorite McDonalds.   You see, there is a McD’s right by my house, but I drive several miles away, to a different one, because they have the BEST Diet Coke  EVER!!!  It is totally worth it to drive the extra miles, just to get that perfect soda. Plus, they never (ever, ever, ever) mess up my order…and when you have 5 kids who like to alter their food, and I like extra ice, etc., mess ups tend to happen…but not at this one!   And there are a couple of the absolute sweetest gals that work the drive through in the mornings (weekdays only…weekends are another story!).  So, they, too will be getting some goodies this year.  This is such a quick and easy craft.  I hope you’ll try it too!!

I’m linking up over at House of Hepworths party…go check out all of the amazing (and inspiring) crafts!  I’m always blown away by the creativity!

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment and let me know you were here!
