Recycled Jars, Homemade Jam And Jar Covers. Hello friends. So do you like to make your own jam, marmalades or chutneys?

Do you want to make some homemade jam and design some homemade jar covers?

How about using some recycled jars?

Recycled Jars, Homemade Jam and Jar Covers:

You Will Need:

Some old jam jars washed out and put in an oven on 100c to dry out properly.

An idea of what jam you want to make. Do you have lots of strawberries, blackberries, sweet potatoes or some oranges for marmalade? (Some recipe ideas below to help you decide.)

The material for the covers, scissors, ties, ribbon for making the jar covers.

I love to up-cycle old jars. 

I am always thinking of fun ideas to put into them. Food, plants, pens, bits and bobs. So many different things to use upcycled jars for.
