Group to create apothecary jars for next Pinners' project

From staff reports

JOPLIN, Mo. — Pinterest users and others will be invited to make their own version of a high-priced decorative item.

Pinterest Anonymous members will make apothecary jars during this month's meeting, set for 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Spiva Center for the Arts.

The group meets every second Saturday of the month. Members make projects that they find on the social networking site, from clothes and jewelry to entrees and drinks.

"We're actually doing what we're pinning," said Karalee McDonald, organizer of the group, last year. "I think the fact that we're dealing with actual projects makes it fun. We may see things, like them and pin them, but we may not be inspired to do them."

Saturday's session will include all the supplies needed to make decorative apothecary jars adorned with ribbons, monograms and more. Cost: $20. The class is intended for members 21 and older.
