Party in Your PJs #12




Welcome to Party in Your PJs #12!

Last week the party was one of the biggest 
weeks yet at Party in Your PJs!

We are slowly and organically grow, and that makes
us happy.  I will not lie, having 100 of links within hours
of going live would be cool, but there is something to be
said for a small group of loyal readers and linkers that makes
my heart sing.  So, thank you to all of you!

If you enjoy our little party, we would love for you share on your 
Facebook pages, G+ pages, Tweet about us, just get the word out 
please, the more the merrier.
The party goes live at 7pm CST each Thursday.

Canning Jar Lid Wreath

I am in the middle of packing up the house we have lived in for 16 years.
It is not fun, but I am trying to make the most of it.

 I have stuff that I did not even know I had.
Does that happen to you?

Stuff you kept as mementos?
Hobbies you forgot about?

That is totally happening to me!

I used to can...like a LOT!
Mostly Jellies, Jams and Preserves were what I loved

So....I found a lot of canning supplies, and since I don't
have time to can anymore, I re-purposed  some of the 
supplies into a wreath!

Canning Jar  Lid Wreath


I had a ton of them.  How many...umm...sorry I did not count.

When I first made this, I simple strung the rings on a 
piece of twine.

Fail!

There were so many of them, that it drooped.

I ain't got no time for a droopy wreath, so
I headed out to Mr. Cookie Puzzles shop, and
grabbed what I could find that I thought would work.

What did I grab?
This really cool metal ribbon with wholes in it.

It was thick, and strong and in a coil, and was strong
enough to hold the weight of the rings.

I used the whole coil, I just kept on stringing them on, and looping the
ribbon around 3 times. Then I used my twine to tie it together.

Make sure you get the wire ribbon tight.  I then added some 
pretty doo dads and called it a day.

I am happy with how it turned out!

When it was all done, Mr. Cookie Puzzle informed me that I 
was not using metal ribbon, but Galvanized Hanger Iron, or
Plumbing Strap, it looks like this!


SO...grab some of this...and some canning jar lids..and make a wreath!
