Another MacKenzie-Childs knock-off

I wanted a few of these cookie jars, but they cost $45.00 ea:
So, I went to Hobby Lobby and bought 2 cookie jars for $3.99 (on sale 2 for 1).
I painted black and white checks on the lids
A few years ago I went to the MacKenzie-Childs Odds and Ends store in Aurora and bought some beads and gold trims for cents. I knew that someday I would "need" them.
So I stacked them and created "handles"
Now I have 2 cookie jars that resemble the M-C originals!
I am linking up with Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch and Make it for Monday at Cottage Instincts and Motivate me Monday at Keeping it Simple

  19. The cookie jars are wonderful. My DIL loves Mackenzie-Childs but the prices make it prohibitive for her to own but a few pieces. Looks like I found a project I can make for her b'day. Thanks for the inspiration!

  23. Oh my goodness, how cute are these?! I wish I had the counter space for something like this. I would love to keep my kids' goodies in there rather than all over my kitchen. LOL!

I have purchased quite a bit of her things but now that life has changed I will be making the rest of them... :) do you suppose you could tell us how you got those checks so perfect looking? Please? I could make some for Christmas presents. Thanks and especially thanks for sharing.

  30. These look awesome, Patti.
    I am still looking for beads and gold trim but haven't found any I can afford. I ended up putting white knobs on my glass jars you painted lids for...they look really good but not like they should. :)

  32. Hi! I know this is an old post, but I just had to come see when I visited your blog and saw the heading.. I am a fan of MacKenzie Childs, too!
    I just painted salt and pepper grinders like this, and the cookie jars would be a fun addition! Thanks! I am definitely going to browse around your blog some more, but for now, I'm off to Hobby Lobby! LOL
