Do you like jute? Or hemp? I do. I love how these materials can add such a natural warmth to a project and to a room.
Well, if you like it too, I have the absolute easiest project EVER for you.
I needed some natural, warm accessories for J & A’s bedroom, and I needed them to be super-cheap. Well, it doesn’t get much cheaper than this.
Matt and I love salsa, and this is the kind I buy.
But here’s a glimpse into my crazy mind. I don’t buy this brand because I just really enjoy the flavor. I buy it because I love the jars it comes in. 🙂 Yep, I buy my food based on the shape and usefulness of the containers. Okay, not all of it, but some. And unfortunately, I’m NOT joking. :~D
So here’s what I did…I took just a couple of supplies, including jute (or you can use hemp), and my new favorite super-sticky adhesive…
I trimmed the end of the jute so that I had a nice, neat end that wasn’t frayed. (Oh, and this is a “do as I say and not what I do” moment. Do NOT lay your jar on the table like that after you’ve removed the protective paper from the adhesive.) 🙂

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
