Today's gift is a Fabric Lined Mason Jar filled with colorful flowers!
I found this lovely tutorial from Dwelling in Happiness for fabric lined mason jars and thought Bingo! Bean looked through the fabric I had - I don't sew, why do I have fabric??? - and said her teacher would love this pattern.
Mason jar - had on hand. (I would suggest one of the wide mouth jars.)
Fabric - had on hand
Mod Podge and/or Elmer's glue - had on hand
smaller Mason jar - had on hand
Colorful flowers - $6.99 from the grocery store
Bloom tag - free printable HERE
curling ribbon - had on hand
We cut the fabric into strips which showed I cannot cut in a straight line to save my life.
|Don't judge my doo-dads!|
|Yes, I craft in my kitchen sometimes.|
We placed a few strips in and let it dry. We also ran out of Mod Podge but please don't tell the Crafting Society branch of the Junior League. They would revoke my imaginary membership.
Once this section of fabric had dried, we made up a mixture of Elmer's glue and water in lieu of Mod Podge. I thought this worked really well but when dry it is not as clear as the Mod Podge.
When everything was dry, we trimmed up the top.
Bean added the Bloom tag to the front of the jar with a glue dot and we added some curling ribbon. These flowers really set off the color of the fabric.
Stay tuned for more Teacher Appreciation gifts.
