Hanging Flower Jars
We always seem to have a bunch of empty jars hanging around the house, whilst they could be chucked in the recycle tubs, I like to keep a few on hand for little projects.
Yesterday the boys and I decided to use a few of those jars for hanging flowers around the garden and house.
You could of course just clean up any old jar, plonk some flowers in and it’s all good.
But I wanted a little something extra, so I grabbed a few bits and pieces from my craft stash; lace ribbons, vellum papers and fabric hearts.
Using a few dabs of glue here and there I soon had all 3 jars decorated in one way or another.
I used some old wire and pliers to make a handle on each jar (be careful when using wire, the ends are bloody sharp).
My little darlings had already “liberated” some flowers from the garden, we plonked those in the smaller jars.
They all look rather pretty!
I let the boys decide where to hang them, they finally decided the gate post needed some extra blooms.
As well as being perfect for adding extra decoration to the garden, these make perfect decorations for indoors too.
Here’s on flower jar hanging from the bathroom window!
This simple method of decorating jars also makes quick and easy tea light holders.
I’m off to convince the boys they really don’t need to rip the flowers off every single plant in the garden!
