Spring Jars

Well hello, Spring.  We have anxiously awaited your arrival. What better way to welcome it than with a garden fairy and gnome?





What we used to make these:
~pictures of your cute little munchkins
~styrofoam
~bamboo skewers
~embellishments for the clothing and wings (scrapbook paper, twine, ribbon, paper flowers...)
~adhesives
~jar
~moss
~any other spring goodness you'd like to add to your jar


Here's what we did:

~Cut out a full body picture of your little munchkin.
~Use glue dots or other adhesive to add embellishments as cute fairy or gnome clothes


~Use a glue gun to attach part of a toothpick or bamboo skewer to the back of your fairy/gnome


 ~Stick your skewer into a small piece of styrofoam (I cut a large block of styrofoam into small pieces)
~Hot glue the styrofoam to the bottom of a jar
~Fill bottom of jar with moss and be sure to cover the styrofoam (helps if the styrofoam is already green!)
