Today I am posting the tutorial I shared with the CSI Project last week.
These are pretty fast to put together and they would look great on any Easter table.
Easter Mason Jar Planters
All you need:
mason jars, any shape and size
several of your favorite springy colors of Krylon spray paint
small bag of potting soil
some pretty flowers...make sure they grow in small groups
I chose alyssum, perfectly light and fresh
With your jars flipped with the mouth down, spray paint each jar the color you want. The first coat should be a very light coating, not covering all the way. After the first coat sets for just 10 minutes, you can follow up with a second coat. Repeat until you have the coverage you want.
After they have dried 24 hours, we can transfer over our spring plants.
Make a paper funnel and place it in the mouth of your jar. Slowly scoop in potting soil.
Fill just over two thirds full, leaving plenty of room for your plant.
Separate your flowers into natural smaller groups.
Transplant your flowers into the jar. Add in any extra soil around the plant that is needed to fill the jar.
Repeat with all the jars.
They are super lovely just as is, but for Easter they need more, don't ya think?
I found some bunny silhouette's that I cut out from white vinyl. Then I applied my little bunnies to one side of the jar.
Repeat with all the jars, some of the jars, all the same bunnies, different bunnies. You call the shots. I used different shapes and I left one jar plain.
Line them up on your table for a simply lovely Easter decoration.
