Washi Tape Recycled Jars {contributor Cami}

How exciting is to be here today. Hope you remember me, I’m Cami from The Crafting Nook {TitiCrafty}. I’m sharing these cute washi tape recycled jars that I found really useful and decorative. I like to think that we can help even if it’s a tiny bit being just a little green.

Have you thought about the amount of recyclable trash we throw away each day?

So let’s think about this just a sec. How many times we go stores to buy containers? Of any kind… My mom is a container buyer freak compulsive. She is always buys boxes, plastic organizer containers, small containers, and so on. And she steps in IKEA we lose her. I love containers but sometimes I think that there are so many things we can save from the trash and will do exactly the same thing. Shoes boxes for example. A good paper mod modge or decorated contact paper and it’s as good as a bought box. Baby food jars or plastic cups, also jam jars can do the same as those plastic containers.

My mom get terrified when I keep all the jars she’s about to throw away. I clean them, dried them and put in my crafty box. I know I’ll find a good end to them. And here is one of my ideas.

I was using a plastic divided container that my mom lend me a while ago, but I know she was going to need it soon so I decided to use all those baby food jars I had kept, decorate them and use them to store everything I had I there. The result was so cute, not only did it store lots of stud but it was super decorative too.


So, if have that vain for recycling or upcycling things this post is right for you!

Here is what I did.

What you need:

  • Spray Paint {I used white}
  • Plastic gloves
  • Washi tape {the colors and patterns you love}
  • Decorative threads
  • Small recycled Jars

First of all make sure your jars are clean as well as the lids. The lids must be very clean and free of dust and grease.

I went to the backyard and using some big cardboards I painted the lids. It took me about 4 layers to completely cover them. It all depends on the paint. I bought a cheap one, but I know there are some that it comes with surface preparation and all.



Please mind my hand… Completely forgot to wear plastic gloves duh!


While each layer was drying I started applying the washi tape to the jars. I used 6 different coordinated patterns that I loved.

I applied one line to the bottom and another to the top.



I alternate each jar with a different pattern.


When the lids were ready, I brought them inside and cleaned them a bit with a paper towel.


Put the lids in place and OMG, they look so cute!


Ok, so it was time to fill the jars. I brought the plastic container and got started. I didn’t have as many jars as spaces in the container, but I just mixed some related stuff like the fabric flowers, I mixed some colors.


Some of the stuffs I had to place them in a bigger {not decorated} jar for now.

And for the last but not least, I cut some strips of thread in green and pink to decorate the jars.


I just tide them to the jars right bellow the lid with a double knot.

And voila!


Some super cute and decorative containers. These washi tape recycled jars can be revamped in the future. When I don’t want them in those colors anymore, I’ll just remove the washit tape and replace them with other ones. But I just love how they look right now!





How cool is that???

What do you think? What do you do with all that recyclable-useful junk most people throw away?
