Step 1: Materials and Tools Used

Materials and Tools  I used:
  • Long and large frame – The one I used is forty-one (41”) inches wide by nineteen and a half (19-1/2”) inches high, and has a frame surface area of one and one-quarter (1-1/4”) inches wide, purchased from a flea market
  • Tools to take the frame apart from the art work, such as pliers and or wire cutters, and maybe a screwdriver or drill-if needed
  • Drill to place hooks and/or screws and to hang on wall
  • Measuring tape and pencil
  • Hooks
    • What I used:
      • Six (6) 1-3/4-inch long galvanized steel screws plus two (2) for the wall that were long enough to go through the frame and the champagne corks
      • Six (6) champagne corks
    • What could be used:
      • Hooks with screw ends and washers - evenly spaced across the frame, taking into consideration how many jars could be hung next to each other.
  • Painting / Distressing Tools
    • Clean cloth
    • Newspapers, drop cloth or cardboard to cover your work space while you spray paint the frame
    • Primer Spray Paint
    • Spray Paint of your choice of color
    • Various grits of sandpaper – I used 60, 100, and 150 grit
    • Acrylic Sealer
    • You could also use distressing ink and/or acrylic paint to distress the frame
  • Jars – I used six (6) recycled ones of various sizes, but Mason Jars could also be used.  Specifically, the recycled jars used to be for pickles, artichokes, maraschino cherries, jam, pimento stuffed olives and one that I've had in my pantry for years.
  • Twine, jute or hemp cording or wire like the photo to hang the jars
  • Scissors
