Pretty Peonies


What do you do with pretty napkins that are just too pretty to use as napkins?

Found them at the Dollar Tree store...Aren't they beautiful?

How about using them to decoupage some glass jars?

This one was a small strawberry preserve jar...

And this one was a pickle jar...

And now they're both pretty peony candle jars.

Hmmm, I wonder what else I can do with these napkins? Do you have any ideas? I'd love to hear them.

Have a fantabulous day my dear friends!



Hugs and Kisses,

I can't believe that you found such pretty napkins at the dollar store! They are just perfect for your decoupage! I also love the velvet ribbon and key. Those little touches make the vases go "ooh la la"!

Very clever indeed! The jars are pretty & I love how you embellished them with the ribbons, heart & key. Your coffee table vignette looks gorgeous. Were the napkins difficult to work with?

Hello dearest Ana,
Your little jars are just beautiful now. Hard to believe they are jelly jars!
You could leave them intact and turn them kitty cornered and use them as place mats. Or you could make pillow covers out of them. Or..that's about it. I haven't been too creative recently. I haven't been around much either. Ttyl.
Love and hugs, Cindy

So neat...love this idea. I have a few of these jars in my cabinet, now I know what to do with them. I like the Dollar Tree and you can find some cute things there.

HOLA ANA, TE HAN QUEDADO MUY BONITOS LOS TARROS, Y LAS SERVILLETAS SON UNA MARAVILLA, LA VERDAD ES QUE SÍ, QUE ES UNA PENA UTILIZARLAS PARA DIARIO NO? ME VOY A PERMITIR DARTE ALGUNAS IDEAS COMO POR EJEMPLO HACER DECOUPAGE EN BANDEJAS DE CRISTAL, QUEDAN PRECIOSAS, EN VELAS, EN CAJAS DE MADERA Y EN MARCOS DE FOTO. SEGURO HARÁS BUEN USO COMO HASTA AHORA.
MUCHOS BESOS ANA

Hi Ana,
What a wonderful idea! they really look pretty on your coffee table. I wonder if you could frame one, just iron out the folds and then put it into the frame, also you can frame it for a tea tray.
I love your idea very much..
Thank you for always leaving me such sweet comments, you really are a sweetheart.
Big hugs, XO Elizabeth
