berry sweet strawberry jars

how's your summer going guys?
have you had a chance to eat a strawberry dessert yet?

y'know cuz strawberries=summer.
i was trying to make a strawberry dessert but all i could do was go for the classic strawberry shortcake.
i put it in a jar to look all cutesy cute and pinteresty then stuck a 4th of july sparkler on top but it looked like a hundred million other strawberry shortcake desserts out there.

not that there is anything wrong with that but if you know me, i always have to try something different.

so i bagged the pinteresty dessert idea and made these instead.
then grab your red spray paint and go to town.
you don't have to tape the jar or lid like i did, depending on what you plan on putting in it. i wanted to have the top of the jar and lid spray-paint-poison-free if i put strawberry dessert in it.

when the jars are dry, remove the tape.

it's lookin' like a tomato strawberry now huh?

but wait! we have to add the stem.

one more thing and then we are done.
ta da! all done.
now all ya gotta do is figure out what to put in them.
may i suggest you do not put everything together as i wrote on the pic above...i don't think that would be berry sweet. :>P

  7. These are so cute and sweet! They'd be fun to pass out at a picnic. I think I'd put little red candies inside and use them as dessert!
