    Wipe the jars and lids clean with a clean paper towel and rubbing alcohol.

    Using a 3/4 inch flat brush, paint the jars and lids: one set in Lipstick, one in Canary, and one in Apple Green. Apply a second coat to each jar and lid with a cosmetic sponge. Trace the oval pattern/shape from the template onto Contac paper and cut out. Place on the jar to use as a stencil and, with a cosmetic sponge, dab on chalkboard paint. Using a White marker, add dots all the way around the Black chalkboard oval.

    Using a small handsaw, cut three dowel pieces (angle the top) that are about 1-1/4 inch each. Using a #8 flat brush, paint the dowels with Cocoa Bean and immediately wipe back using a fingernail and paper towel to add detail.
  • 5
    Make three leaves, by first bending wire into a leaf shape and then twisting the ends. (Make sure to leave about 3 inch to wrap around dowels/stems.) Place wire leaf shape on Green fabric scrap and glue into place with craft glue. Cut off excess fabric. Cut another piece of fabric in a contrasting Green color and glue on top of leaf. Twist ends about three times. Leave excess wire and twist around dowels/leaves. Remove leaves for the following step. Glue dowel (stem) to middle tops of the three lids. Once they are dry, add the leaves. Glue the lid pieces together so they unscrew open in one piece.

    Use the chalk to indicate what the containers are to be used for!
