How to Make Baby Food Jar Labels for Centerpieces

Save

Centerpieces for any gathering should be eye-catching and in sync with the theme of the party. But they can also be functional items that guests take home as favors. You need not raid your local party-supply store in search of a charming baby shower centerpiece. Instead, use a your crafting know-how to decorate your tables with beautifully labeled, empty baby food jars you can fill with treats for your guests.

Things You'll Need

  • Card stock
  • Decorative scissors
  • Calligraphy pen
  • Glue stick
  • Fine crafting glitter
  • Hole punch
  • Chunky wool yarn
  • Purchase card stock in colors that match your ideal decor. Use a pair of decorative scissors to cut the card stock into individual labels that measure 3 1/2 by 2 inches, the same size as a standard business card. Cut one label.

  • Hold the black card stock against the baby food jar to ensure it's not bigger than the jar itself. Trim the label, if necessary. Use this as a template. Cut out several more labels.

  • Write with a calligraphy pen the name or message of your choice onto the label.

  • Rub a glue stick over the blank side of the label. The stickier it becomes, the better.

  • Shake fine crafting glitter onto the sticky side of the label to give it a sparkling look. Allow it to dry for at least 20 minutes.

  • Place a small hole at the top of the label, using the hole punch. The hole should be about the size of the diameter of a pencil. Alternatively, punch the hole in the corner of the label if placing it at the top will interfere with the message you've written.

  • Cut out a piece of chunky yarn. Wrap the yarn around the lid of the baby food jar three times. String the yarn through the hole in the label until the label is at the center of the string.

  • Wrap the yarn around the lid, exposing the label on the side that holds the message. Tie the yarn into a bow, as if you were tying your shoes. This will secure the yarn and keep the label from coming off.
