This is a great idea for Valentine’s Day coming up for Grandparents, teachers, close friends etc. From Sugar Bush Kids website:

Material

  • Glass Jar (Clear..Interesting shape is best)
  • Cut Magazine pictures of flower or some other theme or tissue paper.
    • Old Kid’s photos works well too, use the ones that did not turn out quite right and cut out what you want
    • Great way to use up your small pieces of left over wrapping paper (Christmas, Birthday, Shower…)
  • Modge-podge or white glue that dries clear
  • Acrylic Craft Varnish

Instructions

  • Glue pictures onto the glass jar in a hap-hazard mosaic with pictures facing out. Cover sides of jar completely and let dry.
  • Cover jar with Acrylic craft Varnish to seal and shine (Easy alternative to varnish …just use more white craft glue that dries clear)
  • Fill with dried flowers
