I like to imagine that when Yoplait launched their new line of yogurt that is packaged in simple glass jars, they had crafters in mind. Once you’ve enjoyed your treat, you can easily clean the jar and remove the label to reveal a glass container with an interesting shape and clean lines. It’s probably no surprise that I have more than a few of these jars in my stash just waiting to be transformed into something new.
While perusing Pinterest for some inspiration, photos of jars strung from tree branches flooded my feed. The beautiful simplicity of the jars holding flower and greenery clippings called to me. Even better was the thought that I already had everything I needed in my craft room and my backyard. I love nothing more than when I can immediately satisfy my creative urges. Of course, you can make this with any other glass jars you may have on hand.
As I hung the jars from the branch, I thought of other things I could place inside the jars. Battery-powered candles would create a warm and cozy ambiance. I could also use the jars as a place to organize some of my office and craft supplies so they’d be within arm’s reach. The only limit is your own imagination.
Begin by thoroughly cleaning the jars with warm, soapy water. If you use this particular type of jar, the labels easily peel right off. Tear fabric into long, thin strips. Wrap a strip around the lip of the jar, while securing another long strip on either side. Tie the first strip into a knot, and then tie each end of the other strip into a knot.
Add hooks or a hammer to the branch, if you’d like to hang the jars in that way. You can also use a cow-hitch or slipknot to secure the jars to the branch. Tie jute around the ends of the branch, and hang. If using this as a flower holder, fill each jar with a small amount of water and a few flower and greenery clippings. Otherwise, fill the jars with whatever you desire.
