Reuse and Upcycle Your Oui Yogurt Jars
Where are my jar fellow hoarders? We know who we are, and we know those Oui Yogurt Jars are irresistible. You can even purchase re-useable lids for them! They have all sorts of fun uses - and the yogurt is pretty good too!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner once again, I thought it would be fun to grab one out of my collection and upcycle it for the holiday. So one afternoon, I whipped up the Say Oui Jar Cozy! You can fill it with candy, flowers, or even a votive candle - how romantic!
So Quick with Bernat Blanket
To keep it quick I used Bernat Blanket in the cutest pink I had on hand! And then, I adapted my Changing Leaves Basket pattern to fit the jar. A final round of stitching turns crocodile stitches into big, bold hearts.
From the side you see the hearts, and from the top it looks rather floral.
Perfect for spring holidays! With only 30 yards of yarn used per cozy, this pattern is great for stash busting too.
