Jute Flower Pot

I’ve been wanting to do an idea I saw somewhere in blogland about wrapping a jar with jute and using it for a vase (I don’t remember where I saw it at). When I saw some Primrose flowers at Smith’s Marketplace and with spring fever running wild at my house I decided I would use that idea but use the jar for a pot instead of a vase.

Items I used:
Flowers, old glass jar (mine was a Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme 7-once jar), jute, hot glue gun with glue, and sea shells.
Here’s what I did:
First I planted my flowers.
Then, starting at the top I glued the first row of jute to the jar. I just kept on wrapping the jute around the jar adding a little bit of glue every couple of rows for stability until I had wrapped the jar as much as I wanted. Then I glued the sea shells centered onto the jute.
Tada, a quick, cheap way to bring some new life into my home (as long as I can keep them alive)!!!
