Letters in a Jar

The other day on Life in the Fun Lane I read about ceramic balls with letters on them on sale at Michael's. I really liked them for some reason and decided to grab a few. I got them for the low, low price of just $1 a ball. I bought eight of them and brought them home. I thought they would look great in a mason jar, because in my opinion, everything looks great in mason jars. :) I actually ended up only putting seven letters in the jar because all eight wouldn't fit. I didn't want to just have one jar standing alone so going along with the letter theme I put some Scrabble letters in a smaller jar. These now sit on top of my recently redone coffee table.
I'm really pleased with the look and this was an inexpensive way to add something new to the room. If you like the letters then hurry over to Michael's and get some.


  1. Hey Karen, How funny, I bought a bunch of this too but didn't really have any idea what to do with them. There were all sorts of neat things for only $1. Did you see the paper weight too? Anyway I thank you for the idea, now I won't feel like I wasted my money on these. I love those dollar baskets at Michaels.
    Also I am working on my embellishments for a sweater that I am planning on giving to my sister for her bday. So far they aren't looking so great but I think I just need to stack a bunch of the cutouts on top of each other to achieve the look.(they are lying really flat and not flouncy like yours) How many cutouts do you think you stacked and sewed together?
    Have a great day!

  2. Hey Christi, I stacked two chiffon fabric flowers on two cotton flowers.
    Also, I didn't see the paper weight. I hate I missed it.
