Decorate your storage jar

Black-and-white theme for a liquorice jar

While cheerful colours brighten up our lives, black-and-white simply oozes timeless elegance. That’s why we decided to decorate this storage jar with a gleaming white pattern before filling it with delicious liquorice. We think the contrast is pretty special? edding gloss paint markers are the perfect choice for this design because their lustrous colours show up particularly well on dark, smooth surfaces such as glass. There’s a variety of stroke widths to choose from as well as a range of 22 different colours (if you’re aiming for something more colourful). All the colours are smudge-proof and waterproof, which means you can enjoy your jar for much, much longer. We’re delighted to be able to share this idea with you, created by Dutch blogger Karin Luttenberg, well-known for her blog @PAPER_FUEL.
