The NEW Mint Jar

I've been super busy packing my apartment in anticipation of my move this weekend. It has been a very long process so I haven't had much time to get crafty... until last night. I decided I needed a break and my coworker has been giving me constant grief about the mint jar. So, here it is! Yea!

I bought a simple hermetic jar from The Container Store and Mod Podged two different cute prints on the top.  For the base, I used green and white acrylic paint to create the stripes.  I coated the dried paint with Hard Coat Mod Podge to help keep the acrylic paint from chipping.  For the finishing touches, I added a  little bit of distressed olive green ribbon around the lip!
