Hello fellow crafters, Cathy here with a fun project for the 4th of July using Helmar adhesives.
I started with 3 plain canning jars..
I cut out some stars and a liberty bell out of vinyl for two jars and painted one with blue chalk paint (3 coats) and the other with red. (make sure to let dry between coats) . After the paint is dry, Spray with the Helmar Crystal Kote Gloss varnish and once that is dry peel away the varnish images.
the 3rd jar... I used Helmar Decoupage to adhere white tissue paper to it by attaching it with the Decoupage and then painting a coat of decoupage over it and let it dry.
After the jar is dried, I then took it out doors to spray a coat of Helmar Crystal Kote Gloss Varnish to seal it.
To decorate, I made a paper pinwheel and used Helmar Premium Craft glue to decorate with rhinestones and flowers and added it to the jar with the pinwheel
Inside the jars I added some dry bean..you could use dry popcorn kernels or rice...and place a small tealight in the center and voila..you have a fun Fourth of July decor...
Happy 4th of July!!
Have fun Creating..Cathy
