Shabby Chic Button Jars

Now that I have my own craft space (also guest bedroom) I need to start getting a little more organized!  I have tons and tons of vintage and antique buttons and have been keeping them in baggies, really not very attractive.  I love old glass jars and ball jars, but those can be pretty expensive and I need a bunch.  So I went to my old stand by Dollar Tree and found these really cool retro sugar shakers! 
Of course I couldn’t just leave them plain.  I wanted to spray paint the lids but the weather won’t permit this for a while so I decided to decoupage the lids with black & while toile scrapbook paper that I already had on hand.

Next I thought I would decorate the glass jar portion and found these vintage button tags on the Graphics Fairy.  Copied and printed out on card stock and adorned with a vintage button.  Then wrapped some vintage lace around the jars and attached the button tags with kitcen twine.  Again a super… easy and inexpensive craft project.
Supplies: Sugar shakers, scrapbook paper, kitchen twine, vintage buttons, lace, card stock, Mod Podge
Happy Crafting!
