Cowboy Cookie Jar

Here's my most recent trash-to-treasure's a large pickle jar that I transformed into a fun "Cowboy Cookie Jar" for my son! After washing the jar and removing the labels and old adhesive, my hubby spray painted the lid black for me. I then simply tied a bandana around the upper portion of the jar and made a distressed tag with kraft cardstock, ink and alpha stamps. I tied the tag to the bandana using jute twine and added a little cow charm just for's a close-up view of the tag:

Lastly, like any good momma would, I filled the jar with yummy chocolate chip cookies before sending it home with my son! ;)

Wishing you a wonderful Friday!!



  1. Sweet! I will have to copy this idea, so I can send my son home with cookies too!

    1. ALL son's like cookies...and they love their mommas a little bit more when we keep their cookie jars full. ;)

  2. Your such a sweet mom! Need another kid? LOL!

  3. So cute! My parents are 'cowboys' maybe I'll make them something like this for when I visit them this summer! Thanks for another fab idea Becky!
