These yummy yogurts are delicious AND precious, make a Oui yogurt jar over with this DIY rain chain tutorial
Y’all, these yogurts are yummy. Anything lemon makes me happy and then eating out of this cute little jar just makes me feel like a fancy French lady. For real, there is something different about scooping spoonful of yogurt from a fancy dish verses plastic. A lot of food is like that, it tastes different based on the way you serve it, but I digress. After finishing my treat it just feels wrong to waste the little jars (hello…recycle) so I came up with a DIY rain chain because I have wanted a rain chain for a long time. Two birds, one stone my friends!
A few of my blogging besties decided we would all do a little Oui yogurt jar makeover, that way you would have options once you scarf up your fancy treat. Be sure to see the other crafty ideas I have linked up at the bottom of this post. Then you will need to head to the grocery store. 😉 If you are new here, I’d love to keep you up to date with easy DIY projects, free artwork and inspiration. Tell me where to send the love and I will…
Here is a supply list (with affiliate links so you can shop easily, this means should you make a purchase I might receive a small commission. Your price stays the same. Thank you) because there is one item you have to have for this project and that is the correct drill bit.
DIY Rain Chain Supply List
Oui Yogurt Jars
Start by drilling a hole in the bottom of your yogurt jar with a glass drill bit. This type of drill bit works best with a wet surface, so keep a glass of water close by and pour some water on the jar before drilling.
I turned my jar upside down for easy access and the inverted bottom hold water well. USE CAUTION on this step! Where eye protection and gloves, you do not want to press hard as you drill, you will rick breaking the jar. Let the drill bit do the work, softly working it till it goes through.
Thread your wire through the bottom loop of one chain, through the top of the Oui jar and then through the top of the next chain. Using pliers twist the attachment wire closed as tightly and neatly as possible, then clip it short enough to be secure. Keep going until all are connected.
Now you will want to hang your rain chain in a spot you need a downspout or if you just want a pretty view hang it where the rain can readily reach the rain chain! Pretty simple and very beautiful. I used a screwed cup hook to hang the top from our eve. You will want to secure the bottom length of chain so it doesn’t blow around and break. I used a grass staple to pin the chain into the dirt below our chain.
Here are a few more ideas you can create yourself with those leftover Oui yogurt jars! I would REALLY appreciate it if you would share or pin this project for later! Happy eating and crafting friends
