Introduction: DIY Plant in a Jar
In this fun, but easy craft, you will learn how to make a really fun, DIY plant in a jar! By the way, I found all of my supplies around my house. Hope you enjoy this craft!
A hot glue gun
And of course, a Mason jar
Fake moss (Optional)
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
The very first step is to get all of your supplies together. Start by plugging in your hot glue gun. Then go outside and look for some type of small rock. These can be actually any size you want, but I am just going to stick with using small rocks. If you are going to use large rocks, you should also use a bigger Mason jar. After that, gather your plants. Find an different arrangement of plants that you like. Finally, get your Mason jar, and now you're ready to start the craft!
Step 2: Getting Started
Start by placing your rocks on the bottom of your jar. Fill it about half of the way full. If you have larger rocks, fill it a third of the way full. Then figure out exactly where you are going to place your plants so you'll be ready when you hot glue them. If you are going to use moss, also figure out where you are going to put it.
Step 3: Putting It Together
First, hot glue all of your plants into place. Make sure to space them out differently, put them in different directions, and in different patterns to create a realistic look. If you want to add even more to your jar, you can glue short strips of plants to the lid of your jar so that when you close the jar, the plants will hang from the lid.
Step 4: Finishing Up
To finish the final look of your jar, you can tie ribbon (or yarn) around the top of the jar. You can also roll the lid of the jar in glue then in glitter. You can do the same thing for the jar.
