I've been saving metal jar lids as they seem like great little frames for crafting, and now at last I actually put one to use as the perfect little name tag for my 5 year old's Purim costume! And the red taster's choice lid was just right for his costume—not to mention that anything upcycled or recycled always gets extra points in my book! For those of you who don't read Hebrew, it says "Yosef HaTzaddik" as in the original Joseph who had a special striped coat! Lucky for me I picked up this vintage coat years ago because I loved the colors and when I realized it would be a great Purim costume, well I just had to save it. And on a side note, if you make your own costumes it's much easier to convince your kids to be an important figure in history versus say a policeman or soldier like everyone else.
So there you have it, if you save coffee jar lids and vintage clothing they may very well come in handy! Not that I'm trying to make you into a pack rat, just sayin', as they say!
- a metal jar lid
- a pin back
- a hot glue gun
- a message or name printed out on your printed or handwritten, a photo would be great too!
How To: Pretty self explanatory, right? You could also use your lids as bases for collages or small paintings. And they really don't take up much room, so go for it and be sure to send your ideas on over! All the very best and wishing you all a wonderful Purim!
