After buying lovely wood topped glass jars from Daiso, I had the brilliant idea to decorate them using quick setting LED resin (sold at HM Ben Franklin Crafts). Since I had shells (purchased at HM BFC) and crystals in my collections of natural small objects, I decided to start my creations with those items.
It was easy to arrange the shells on the wood top and apply the resin around them. A quick exposure to the LED light hardened the resin instantly, securing the shells in place.
Recently, a friend gave me some shell chocolates (with candy coatings like M&Ms) and I thought they would look amazing (and tempting) in this shell topped jar.
For the second jar I decided to use the resin to attach some crystals ( flourite and amethyst) to the jar top.
The flourite crystals look almost like rock candy but you will surely break a tooth if you try to chomp on one. I think this jar will look splendid on a display shelf. I am so pleased with these resined wood topped glass jars that I am already planning more...perhaps some with acorns or tumbled stones. Because the jars at Daiso are only $1.50, you should buy a bunch when you see them and then decide later what to do with them. I wish I had hoarded more....hahaha!
