Mason Jar Flower Display

by Guest

Our color of the month for June, Breezeway, is a soothing, minty blue-green color.  It is a restful and relaxing color to immerse yourself in on a hot summer day.  We used this lovely color as a backdrop for our summer color, mounted, mason jar flower display.  

Here is what you will need to complete this project.

Materials:

 Paint- we used breezeway MQ3-21 and Ethereal Mood MQ3-52

Paint tray

Paint rollers and roller covers, or paint brush

Plywood- cut into 6 – 7”x7” pieces

6 Small Mason Jars

Ribbon in the color of your choice

Flowers

1″ wood screws

Hot glue

Tools:

Glue gun

Miter saw and circular saw or hand saw

Power drill or screwdriver

Ruler/measuring tape

Step 1: Measure your wood

With a square ruler, measure your wood and mark it to your desired lengths. The squares in this project were measured and cut into 7″ x 7″ pieces.

Step 2: Cut the wood

Use a hand saw to cut the longer lengths and  the miter saw for smaller cuts. You can sand your pieces at this point, if desired, to eliminate rough edges.

Step 3: Paint your wood blocks

Paint the front and back of your pieces with a small paint roller or brush.  We chose the color Ethereal Mood MQ3-52 for ours. Allow your pieces to dry then, if needed/desired, apply a second coat and allow to dry.

Step 4: Measure ribbon

Wrap a length of ribbon around the middle of the jar.  Wrap it around an additional three times and slip it gently off the jar. Make sure you hold the ribbon together tightly so it doesn’t unravel when removing.  Glue the free edges down with your glue gun after removing from jar.

Step 5: Attach ribbon to wood

Measure in from the edges of your wood piece and mark the center point. With a power drill, or screwdriver, secure the ribbon to the wood blocks at the center point.

Step 6: Slip in jars

After securing the ribbon to the blocks, slide the jars back in the loop. The fit should be tight, so the jar will not fall through once upright.

Step 7: Arrange on wall

Attach blocks to wall in a decorative pattern.  Fill with water and beautiful flowers and enjoy!
