MASON JAR DIORAMAS


Is it too early for Spring crafts?
It probably is, but I like to take my time and not rush at the last minute.

I already have finished the Spring decor for my front porch and now I am slowly working on a few things for inside the house. One of the projects I finished was three mason jars dioramas that I made with things I already had at home.





I used three mason jars in different sizes and I glued them to some candlesticks from Dollar Tree I already had at home.
I used E6000 to glue them together and let it dry overnight.
You can find this glue at Walmart, by the craft section.




First thing I did was paint the lids in white and glued to them three old knobs which I painted in a green Spring color.


And then came the fun part, decorating them.
I can not say it was easy, although I used the wide mouth jars, it was kind of tricky getting everything to stay in place.

Inside the bigger jar I added some moss on the bottom and place on it a small nest and baby bird.
Using a small branch piece from the trees in my yard, I cut it to size and using scrapbook paper and twine, 
I made a tiny banner.







And I finished it with one of the burlap labels that I bought at Hobby Lobby last week.




I did the same thing with the medium jar, only it just hold a small baby bird on the branch.




And the smaller jar just holds a bird nest and egg in similar colors.






The cost of this project for me was zero, since I used what I already had, but if you need to buy the materials, you can probably make them for under $15.00 for the set.

Today, I am organizing my craft room closet and shelf using some of the new plastic container that Dollar Tree has new for Spring. I will share that with you soon.

Until then, enjoy your day!
