Need a quick centerpiece or a springtime decoration for your home? This is so easy, you’ll want to make more than one!
I created these for Creative University, they were used as centerpieces in the dining hall, and given away at the end of the event.
Use a wide-mouth canning jar (it’s easier to get the items inside, but you can use any jar, even an old mayonnaise jar). The lids on my jar were brand new and a bit too shiny for me, so I sprayed them down with a coat of hammered finish spray paint by Krylon. Place a handful of river rocks in the bottom, and add a glob of green florist moss.
Add a couple artificial butterflies to your jar. I used white feather butterflies found in the wedding section of Michael’s crafts store. I sprayed the butterflies with Lindy’s Stamp Gang starburst sprays to customize their colors. I also added a spray of artificial leaves and berries. I think it would also look nice if you used a twiggy branch, if you have one.
Add the lid, wrap and tie with hemp and you’re done! For an extra touch, I added a hand-made charm.
You can also use mushroom birds and little plastic eggs in place of your butterflies.
