I’ve been saving glass jars since we moved into our current house a year ago. We must eat way too many jarred foods because I’m being overrun by glass jars. When my friend, J., came over for a day of crafting and chatting (the modern-day quilting bee equivalent), I knew we had to do a project using these glass jars. Since all the spring flowers are just starting to bloom, we decide to make an easy repurposed jar vase to hold all those lovely flowers. This is an easy project to make with kids (or by yourself) for Mother’s Day.
Start with your collection of recycled glass jars. If you’re don’t have your own collection, knock on my door and ask to look through mine or drop by your local thrift shop and pick some glass jars up.
Simply peel the backing off the vinyl and embellish your glass jars. In just a couple of minutes (the hardest part is peeling the backing off the vinyl), you have a sweet little flower vase. Can you say, “instant gratification”? Cut some pretty flowers from your yard, and you have a sweet gift for someone special.
