How to Make a Fairy Jar

Show off your girly side and learn how to make a Fairy Jar from Heidi Borchers. Glass jar crafts like this one allow you to use recyclable materials and trim your trash. This is a fun and simple project that doesn't require a lot of time or craft expertise.

Start by tracing a circle the size of the jar lide on a piece of thin cardboard (you can upcycle a cereal box) and on an Aleene's Tacky Double Stick Sheet. Peel the backing off of the sheet and adhere a piece of scrapbook paper and cut the paper so it matched the circle. Glue moss and fairy figurine to the paper using Aleene's Super Thick Tacky Glue. Once you've created your desired landscrape, allow the glue to dry and place the piece inside the jar. Create a second circle using the double stick sheets. Punch a circle through the sheet once paper is attached and insert a piece of microfilament. Glue the lid onto the jar and allow to dry. Display this piece on a table top during a summer gathering or leave a few in your garden.
