Make an Apple Mason Jar

Show your favorite teacher a little appreciation this back-to-school season with this apple mason jar by Ashley at the DecoArt Blog!  Just a bit of paint and some simple embellishments give it a whole new look.  This idea would work with all kinds of other jars as well, so dig into that recycling bin for inspiration!  They are perfect for use as pencil holders, or to fill up with other goodies and use as a gift-giving vessel.  [how to make an apple mason jar]
