Thinking outside the jar.

We found these adorable flowers around the corner and they ended up lasting forever...
until we realized they actually had dried.

Rather than keeping them inside the jar we decided to glue them to the outside! 
We only used a little bit of hot glue to hold them into place and tied up the evidence with twine. 

This would look great with lavender or any flower that dries well. 

This is great for any occasion but we're thinking Mother's Day.


  1. Perfectly lovely for a Mother's Day gift! I love the addition of the twine :-)

  2. A very sweet gift for any occasion. Great project. THanks for sharing.
