Making Simple Festive Table Decorations
Making these simple covered jars is very easy - and they look great at any time of the year. I used to make them for weddings, covering jam jars with twigs to give a pretty rustic look without spending a lot of cash - some would be filled with flowers, some with a floating candle or tea light.
- Jam jar
- Waterproof blutac
- Cinnamon sticks
Measure a piece of waterproof blutac to go round the jar and cut it in half along the length so that you have 2 strips.
Put thees around the jar and squish well.
Cut or snap your cinnamon sticks to length - uneven heights look great so don't worry if they aren't exact.
Carefully squish them into the waterproof blutac - keep the bottom of the sticks level by putting the jar on a table to check.
Work your way right round the jar
Then cut the ribbon long enough to wrap around the cinnamon sticks and tie into a bow. You can also wrap twine round and round for a more rustic look.
Ring the changes with birch or dogwood twigs and add flowers.
