Home Decor, Ball Jar Bouquet

Collect some jars

DSC_0001

they don’t have to be all the same~

DSC_0002

3 quart jars, 3 pint jars and 1 bud vase in the center

DSC_0004

Fill the jars half way with water and form a cluster.    Tie together with a ribbon

I put 3 large hydrangea blooms in the 3 quart jars

and then filled in with shorter stems of alstromeria in the pint jars

In the center I used tall stems of fat green blooms~ I don’t know their proper name 😳

and then I tucked in some purple Peeps on wooden skewers and a moss bunny

this is not easy to transfer so place it on a tray if you like

and try it out in various spots!

my yard is slowly coming to life

I am hoping to have flowers planted and growing soon so I won’t have to import them!

You can also create smaller arrangements with 2 or 3 jars

I think it’s fun to use different sizes and/or colors

Try burlap ribbon or twine

2 jars

I stumbled across these handy little Mason jar accessories the other day

These frog lid grids sit perfectly under the jar rim to hold your stems in place

You don’t have to tie the jars together

Just place the jars in a grouping and you still have the effect of a large bouquet

Don’t you just love endless possibilities?

    Jenna, you bouquets are beautiful, and how clever to cluster several jars and tie them with a pretty ribbon. You’re right. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for the inspiration. I’m going to be trying this idea some time soon. laurie

    You’re speaking my love language Jenna, a Ball jar bouquet with PEEPS! How cute and easy is that for Easter or any occasion?! Your green blooms look like viburnum, LOVE that green & purple polka dotted ribbon!

  6. This is a really great tutorial for everyone, but especially those who don’t feel comfortable assembling bouquets. It’s an almost “no-fail” thing! Using the Ball jars just makes it that much cooler! And who DOESN’T have a bunch of those jars sitting around??? 🙂 Glad to see your yard is taking shape for the season. Ours? Still getting a check in the “YUCK!” column!

    Have a happy Easter, and be safe!
