Pet Silhouette Keepsake Bell Jar
When we lose a dear pet, we're left with memories and a few of their personal possessions. Creating a memory capsule in a bell jar is a fantastic way to memorialize your lost pet, and is elevated to fine art with the addition of a leather silhouette cutout.
This idea comes from our friend Ashley Poskin. Bell jars come in all shapes and sizes, but we chose a 7-inch jar and kept it simple by sticking with just a few special items: collar, dog tags, and a leather silhouette. The silhouette can be made from any material (cut paper is traditional) but we chose to work with leather because of its texture, various shades to choose from, and because it fit in well with the antique look of the bell jar. All you need to get started are a few additional craft supplies.
