How to make a Mason Jar flower arrangement step by step:
Step 1: Choose your containers and tray
Gather all your jars, small vases, jugs, bottles if you want you can add egg cups or cups. Try to get a variety of sizes and heights. Make sure they are all washed and clean.
Step 2: Decorate your jars
Measure around the thickest part of your Mason jar. Using fabric scissors, cut the fabric in a strip about 1 inch (2.5 cm) longer than the circumference of your Mason jar to ensure the fabric wraps all the way around. Use a hot glue gun or organic glue to apply glue to secure the fabric. If you want to cover more of your Mason jar, cut the fabric wider to suit your taste. If you want more of the jar to show, cut the strip of fabric thinner. You can also use twine or ribbon to adhere the burlap to your Mason jar. To do this, cut a piece of twine or string about twice as long as the circumference of the jar. Wrap the burlap around the Mason jar, followed by the twine or string on top of the fabric in the middle. Secure with a knot or bow.
Also, you can just wrap with string, ribbon, or twine for a quick and easy Mason jar decoration. Cut your string, ribbon, or twine approximately twice as long as the circumference you measured. Wrap around the jar and secure tightly with a decorative knot or bow and add dried lavender.
