the DIY: FRESH FLOWERS IN MASON JARS

Fresh flowers make everything better. Casey bought some really cute flowers the other day so we decided to take pictures to show you a way that we like to display them! Hence, this DIY.

This is what our table used to look like. It was pretty much a collection of random decorations that were rejects from other rooms. Don't get me wrong, we love the fabric print and our rosette salt and pepper shakers, but all together it looks so drab. Now we are going to make it FAB! Too much?...

You will need some flowers! (These came from Kroger for $5 I believe. Word.)

Photobucket
All you will also need 3 mason jars and some scissors. Oh and a water faucet with running water nearby.

Photobucket
The first thing we did (this was a group project) was cut all of the flowers to the height we wanted and separated all of them. We wanted all the same flowers together so we could evenly divide between the jars. There were a few lone flowers with no more of their kind but that was no big deal. They don't have to look exactly alike.

Photobucket
We filled one jar up with water and put about half of the flower food in that jar and mixed it up.

Photobucket
After the water settled we split it between the 3 jars.

Then we started assembling. We took one group of flowers at a time and separated them between the 3 jars. The next photos will show you step by step which flowers we put where but all we are doing it splitting up each group.

This is what it looked like when we finished separating all of the flowers. Pretty crazy. Now we just rearranged the flowers in each jar so they looked more together.

Photobucket
We were going for the bundled flower look, with lots of flowers in one place. You could also do this with only a few flowers in each jar.

The flowers looked kind of got lost on our table so we put a piece of fabric (that needs to be ironed) underneath them to bring more attention to them.

And here are the finished flowers in jars!

Don't these make you wish it was Spring already? So close!

  2. This is absolutely insulting for anyone who is actually trying to find decent DIY projects. How can you put this as a DIY project??????? Really? putting flowers in glass jars on a table? Really? How stupid do you think your readers are???? 'The flowers looked kind of lost on our table' ??? This 'idea' (and I am giving it credit by calling it that) is lost in a forest of dimness.

    1. Haters gonna hate. Calm down. It's not that serious.

  3. It's not about hate. Hate is far too much of a real experience to be even close to something like this. It's simply having respect for the things that you do and call 'craft' and having standards. The reaction is so ruthless precisely to match the ridiculous character of such a 'project'. Have some standards, otherwise there is nothing to this whole endeavour!

    1. It's. Not. That. Serious. Channel that negative energy on something more worthy like the HIV/AIDS crisis or that tens of thousands of people will die today due to preventable diseases or the upcoming election. It's wasted here. We're not concerned with what you think. There are bigger injustices in the world than flowers gone wrong.
