I have been saving baby-food jars for a while. It's pretty crazy but they are just so cute and I don't recycle glass. I decided a baby shower is the perfect occasion to decorate with these. However, I also used these for our bedroom makeover. They would be perfect down the center of a long table. To make these arrangements:
1. Clean your jars (I had to use Goo Gone to get the sticky part off).
2. Tie a bow at the top.
3. Arrange you flowers. I bought the mini roses and just used what was in my garden for the rest.
On a side note, the florist told me why my water gets stinky and gross. It's because I don't always remove the foliage below the waterline. Who knew? Also, fresh water every couple days helps.I wish I would have made more of these tea-light candle holders. When it got darker, they really set the mood. They are really simple:
1. Clean your jars (once again used Goo Gone).
2. Attach some rub-ons.
3. Place your tea-light inside.
You could probably add a little bow to these but mine got pretty warm. It might pose a fire-hazard.
Check back tomorrow for a final project idea and Monday for pictures of the party.
