I made quite a few knob jars for last weekends craft fair. I was trying my hardest to only make things using what I had on hand. I had these cute jars and knobs taking up space in my craft supplies and decided to see if I could make some simple knob jars out of them. I painted the lids to have kind of a faux zinc finish using this tutorial.
I drilled a hole in the center of each lid and screwed the knobs in place. I think they turned out pretty cute.
I did the same thing with these plain, but larger jars and knobs.
I really love how they turned out.
Finally I made some larger candy jars out of pickle jars and candle sticks. The awesome lids are made from tuna cans - no kidding. You can find the tutorial on how to make your own here.
I think they are really fun.
Most of these knob jars sold. I have a few knobs left in my collection, so I will have to start saving up jars to make some more for the next craft fair.
I was happy with how these sold, but they weren't the top sellers. I will post about those tomorrow.
