Creative Inspiration with glass vases & jars .... oh and a {free} label download!

Glass vases and containers are very popular items for parties and weddings. I have seen them used in so many ways as table decor and on sweet tables. But after the party is over ... what do you do with them? If you ask me, I'll tell you that there are lots of ways to reuse and restyle these wonderful containers. I love to use glass vases and jars in my home decor.

Pictured above are some of our glass containers that I'm currently using in my home office to organize some of my office and art supplies.

I saw a similar desk set up in a Pottery Barn catalogue earlier this year ...
the price difference between PB's glass containers and ours is huge but the quality is the same. I should give one of the home decorating magazines a call and get them to do a "high" vs "low" article with us!

I used the large studio glass candle jar to hold my watercolour pencils and assorted sizes of glass vases to hold paper clips, tags, note paper, scissors, ruler and my pantone book.
Here's one more picture of my desk top. I love how clean and organized it looks.

We just received these really nice glass jars with lids. The cut glass details on these jars gives them a very cool vintage look. The best part is that there is a bevelled area that is perfect for a label. I used three jars to contain my collection of glitter and designed a sticker label to fit in with my office decor.

I created a page of vintage looking sticker labels that you can download if you want to do this yourself.
These labels have been designed so that you can print them on the new "STICKER YOU" Make+Print your own custom stickers. I created these to fit the 8.5"x11" blank sticker sheet. You can add text to the art on your computer before printing or write on the printed labels ... it's up to you. There is space for text under the numbers. I was able to fit three blank labels at the bottom of the page so you don't waste any of the sticker page.
