Mason Jar for Mom

Dear Fellow Crafters,

     Sometimes it is difficult to find the perfect gift for your mother!  The following project featuring a Mason Jar is just the ticket. I found the idea on a site called Oopsey Daisy and had to share it with you. I did tweak my jar with die cuts(of course!) but I think you will find it easy and quick to make.

     The crafter began by spray painting the jar a pastel blue color. Then she stenciled flowers onto burlap which she then wrapped around the jar. I die cut my flowers and layered them onto the jar with Mod Podge.

     The best part of this project was the way the sentiments were added. The crafter purchased the flowers  and then asked family members to write a brief note expressing why they love their Mom. She then rolled the note around the stem of each flower and inserted the flower into the jar with a few marbles to stabilize them.

     I loved this idea so much that I am now making extra for friends.
