Gauze Mason Jar With Ribbons

Thanks for stopping by today!  Today was my turn to share something fun with you all over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and I thought that since tomorrow is finally Halloween, I'd this one final opportunity (for this year, anyway) to share one last Halloween treat using lots of sweet Really Reasonable Ribbon trims.
I covered a $0.99 mason jar with gauze by wrapping it around the jar several times.  I added a Spellbinders spider web die-cut, a piece of JilliBean Soup ephemera, and a Jolee's ghost.  I painted the top of the jar black, put a chalkboard jar topper on it, and wrapped a length of Orange & Black Plaid Ribbon With Black Stitching, and then decorated the top/side with LOTS of great Really Reasonable Ribbon favorites.
This big beautiful bow includes a knot tied from the gauze, as well as a length of Orange Seam BindingBlack Seam Binding,and Ivory Burlap String.  I also added a cute and creepy little snake, and a black button that's also tied with Ivory Burlap String.  I filled the jar with black and orange Jelly Bellys.
There's lots of great inspiration over on the RRR Blog most every day with direct links to all the trims used on each project to help make your shopping easy.  We also have a FUN CHALLENGE taking place now, and there's always something new popping up in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop, so be sure to visit and find out what's new.   Have a happy and creative week, and thanks again for your visit today.
