Recycled Fairy Jar

By:

Bring out your inner girly girl and explore your imagination. Make a Recycled Fairy Jar from Heidi Borchers using a clean, recycled mason jar. Mason jar centerpieces look great on a kitchen table and add a fun touch to a summer party.

  • Aleene’s Tacky Double Stick Sheet

  • Cardboard – thin (I use cereal box cardboard)

  • Scissors
