Flower Jar

Wrap a little fabric and a strand of ribbon around a jar of homegrown flowers—and you’ll have an intentionally lovely table centerpiece or hospitality gift! (This array of spring beauties was made by one of my cousins for our grandparents at a family gathering.)

Simple touches like this add “a warmth of knowing that someone has taken thought and put some originality into preparing the place where food and conversation are going to be shared. It really does something which cannot be achieved otherwise.” (Hidden Art by Edith Schaeffer)

Flower Jar

This is an easy and whimsical touch that adds “extra beauty” to any vase or jar!

    What a lovely idea! Right now we’re enjoying the scents of homegrown daffodils and hyacinths.

    Lovely flowers and I love the jar it came out so cute! I have made some similar but I like the ribbon and material together better.


    P.S. I am hosting a giveaway at my blog right now and I would love for you to stop by and enter.

    Lovely photography and a great concept, especially if you want to get rid of old bits of fabric from crafting or sewing projects. The decorated vase has a nice country feel… how would you apply the same concept for a slightly more formal setting?

    Just stopping by to say, “Greetings”, and I love this simple touch for a vase of country flowers. I may use this for my graduating seniors table centerpieces in June. Great idea, Emily Rose!
