Beaded & Embroidered Mason Jars

So, I never did show you my Bead Entry for The One Crafty Contest. Unfortunately, it was my only entry, as I didn't move on. But that's okay. I'll just enter a million contests for the experience :)

When I heard it was a bead round, I was NERVOUS. I don't craft with beads for a reason. I'm not great with them. I tried to do something with pearl beads and failed. Then I decided to just do something within my realm of comfort. And then I was a lot less stressed.


I "embroidered" and beaded some felt flowers and stuck them on some Mason jars! Super cute storage. 


I bought Czech beads, which I LOVE. They are super pretty and not over the top. They were also easy to sew on.
