I've had this idea swirling in my head for a while now, so it was great to have a reason to craft it! It's simply two octopi [made from translucent polymer clay and dusted with chalk pastels] wrapped around a jar. The inside is filled with blue colored water gel:3 It's approximately 2.75 in. X 3.75 in. While it's bigger than I was hoping for, if I went with a smaller bottle I'd have to leave out an octopus!:[ I also covered the lid with polymer clay and did a simple design to hide the original label Wink All in all I'm pretty happy with it:D

Lovely little octopus jar.  I know it has to be tiny for the challenge but I think it would also look lovely on a goldfish bowl.
