Clean jars thoroughly. We soaked these in vinegar and water overnight to remove the labels and glue, then washed in the dishwasher. The vinegar will help get rid of any odours from previous food.
Decorate your jars. Wrap scrapbook paper or fabric scraps around the jar.

Decorate or paint your lid if you wish.
