These turned out even prettier than I thought that they would! I am super excited to share them with you! I hope that if you like the way the pictures look, that you give them a try! They really don’t take a whole lot of work to put together, either. I hope you love them as much as I do!
As always, the first thing I did was cover my work space with some brown postal paper that I got from Dollar Tree for $1.00 for a roll of it. You can also buy this online, though!
Then I gathered all my supplies: 2 wooden plaques, 2 (32 oz) mason jars, white paint, paint brush, flowers of choice, fairy lights, twine, 2 wrought iron nail hooks, 2 nail backers. (I will list where you can buy everything online at the very bottom of this post)
I started by removing the stickers from the bottom of the jars.
Then I painted my plaques white. Be sure to paint everywhere that might be seen, all the sides, and a little around the back as well.
Then I removed the lids, and put my fairy lights in. (Keep the part that screws back on, but you won’t need the lid part)
Then I made an arrangement of my flowers how I liked it. I used lavender that I found on sale at Hobby Lobby, and I cut the bottom off with wire trimmers because it had wire in it, and then tied it together tightly with twine. You can use any color that you like, and as long as you don’t hot glue your flowers in place, you can change it any time you like!
Then I took twine, and wrapped it around the copper part that twisted back onto the jar several times, securing it with plenty of hot glue on back. (while it was ON the jar) I let the hot glue dry, then I made a small loop in one, and held it up to where I was going to put the hook, and looked to see where I wanted it to hang. I then hot glued a loop in the back the size of loop I wanted it to be. I did the same to the other one, making sure they would hang the same distance down.
Then I took a screw driver and installed the hook. (I probably should have done this first)
Then I put the flowers in the top, and hid the remote control in the flowers where you couldn’t see it.
I made a simple bow out of twine and attached it to the very front with some hot glue. (you can find this on youtube)
Then I simply hung them from the hooks!
I will most likely hot glue them to the backs of the boards to center them better, but I LOVE the way they turned out!
