Jar Art

Have you seen these "Jar Art" kits put out by Ball?  They are the easiest craft to make.  They come with everything you need to design these lovely jars (instructions included), then fill them with awesome gifts or in my case, fake flowers.  The kits normally sold for $6.39 at Ace Hardware, and right now they are on sale for $1.  


Here's the different theme's:
Baby
Garden
Family
Cheer
Life's Journey
Birthday
Explorer
Fishing

Holiday, of course, then I got a few more of the Christmas Jar Art for gifts.
This jar art I made for my Sister who just had knee surgery.  As a "hope you feel better soon" gift, I did the Victorian Roses Jar Art.
  


What you need to make this jar art-                               Cost
                        Jar Art Kit                                            $1.00
                        a Canning Jar with ring and lid            $1.50
                        scissors
                        4 bunches dollar store flowers            $4.00
                        moss                                                    $1.00  
                        a chunk of styrofoam                           $1.00
                        Total cost for gift                              $8.50



1 - wrap the jar with decorative card stock and use the included adhesive circles to secure it in place








2 - put the adhesive circles on all 4 corners of the frame and place in the middle of the wrap on the jar








3 - put an adhesive circle on the bottom of the paper flower and press into the center the frame




4 - secure the card stock strip on the jar ring
