I found a special shaped olive jar in our glass waste and decided to give it a place on my desk.
At first i removed the lid, the labels in hot water and cleaned the jar. Then i used an off white acryl paint to paint the whole jar. When it had dryed I cut roses out of some old napkins I've kept in my crafting closet and glued them on the white painted jar with a special napkin glue. I guess you could use every glue that gets clear when it dries, but I haven't tried anything else yet. When the napkin layer was dry I applied a sealing coat and again, I let it dry. And that's it Wink I had a new pencil holder!

Thanks for having a look!
