Jars are great for storing things in but if you want something more colourful for a child’s room this is a cool idea.
Jars are a fantastic resource they can be used and re-used over and over again. They are one of the easiest to be re-used and most people do it without thinking.
There are also ways to make jars a bit more fun, everyone loves a pop of colour in their living spaces and this easy way to decorate a jar can match any decor that you have.
When I bought my house it had been abandoned so was full of old furniture and many, many years of rubbish and dust. Some of the leftover stuff that I could never see myself using, including a triple bunk bed and a play kitchen, and they went on Freecycle and quickly found themselves a new home. Others were kept with some sort of thought that they could be used somewhere else, these were mostly things I could break down into basic materials such as doors from old cupboards and an old chipboard wardrobe but among all of this stuff there was a dressing table.
Newspaper is one of the most readily available and easy to use resources that be transformed into just about anything. It is also one of the few materials that you can convert from old paper to new paper. I have seen this type of basket online before so decided to have a go myself.
