I found this glass jar in my craft stash and decided to add some Stampin’ Up! Burlap Ribbon and paper flowers made with the Originals Flower Spiral Bigz Die. The Burlap Ribbon also has a piece of Venetian Crochet Trim adhered to the bottom of the ribbon. I made the paper flowers with the Flower Spiral Die using the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper. It’s the same sheet of paper, just using the other side for one flower. The center of the big flower is made with a strip of Old Olive card stock, cut with the Fringe Scissors and rolled up and glued to the inside of the flower. For some extra embellishments I snipped a piece of Gold Sequin Trim and attached it with a Glue Dot. Then I took another piece of Burlap Ribbon, pulled off the bound edge and pulled several threads off to fray the edge of the ribbon. Then I just circled those burlap threads and adhered them behind the flowers with Glue Dots.
There is a white candle inside the jar although it can’t be seen very well in this photo. You could add some candy corn to the bottom of the jar and set the candle on top of that, or add some coffee beans or whatever you can think of to make the bottom of the jar more interesting. I bet if you look around your cabinets or craft supplies, you can find something like this jar to make into a bit of fall home decor and use it for Thanksgiving! If you don’t own the Flower Spiral Die, just make flowers with punches or simply tearing some circles out of paper, crumpling them up and distressing them a bit and putting them together into flowers. Or attach some paper or real colored leaves, perhaps even a Thanksgiving greeting. So many choices!
Burlap is so trendy right now. I was surprised walking around a craft store the other day how they have burlap on just about everything! And mason jars and similar are very popular right now as well.
See what you can find to make a piece of home decor for the Thanksgiving holiday….before it is time for all Christmas decor!
