Sock Jam

Not much crafting here today and I can’t claim this to be my idea either! I saw little jars of baby socks that had labels on saying Baby Jam in a shop window, when I was on holiday in Brixham and I thought it was an idea that I could use, especially for Christmas and birthdays.

I can’t bear to throw these empty Douwe Egberts coffee jars away, it seems such as waste as they are screaming to be filled with something else and now I have found a perfect use for them. Each jar will take up to two pairs of socks.

I designed and then printed the labels (one on each side of the jar) on canvas inkjet paper to add a bit of texture and then filled the top with lots of spare seed beads for added glitz.

What a great idea - I love it! I always give socks at Christmas and this is a terrific way to package them. TFS

A lovely idea - think of all the different baby-related goodies you could package this way.

This is really cute! I love Dowe Egberts jars. I make mine into vintage style jars (old style label & ribbon around the top) & next I want to make sewing kits in a jar. How did you get the bits in the top? Does the plastic but come off easily?
