JAM JARS & FLOWERS – LOW COST, BIG IMPACT.

Jam jars make such pretty cost effective vases and it’s amazing how quickly they accumulate!


I bought 5 metres of 65mm wide edged scalloped ribbon from ‘Fabricsandfancies’ on eBay.

I carefully measured each length around the jam jar, not forgetting a few millimetres of overlap, and cut to size.


Then using a crafting glue gun, I placed 3 dots of glue on the jar to stick down the ribbon edge.


Wrap the ribbon around the jar until the two ends meets. Using your scissors press down the overlap. The glue will secure both layers of ribbon to the glass. Trim off any excess.

Pop in an eclectic collection of flowers or go minimal as I did by placing one dramatic hydrangea head in each vase.
