It’s almost Easter, which is a bit earlier than usual this year. If you’re hosting, or even if you’re headed somewhere and want a creative hostess present, here is a cute spring craft that combines a little gardening with a little painting. Crafting can be good for the soul, and serves as both a stress reliever and a distraction from heavy things on your mind.
Spray-Painted Mason Jars
Mason jars, any shape and size
Krylon spray paint in your favorite Spring color(s)
Small bag of potting soil
Small flowers in dirt, such as alyssum
Flip your jars to have the opening down, and spray paint the outside of each jar the color you want. Stick with light coatings, with even spray. Let the first coat set for about ten minutes then follow up with a second coat. Repeat until you’ve got some nice coverage. Let the jars dry for about 24 hours.
Next, make a paper funnel into the mouth of your jar, and scoop in the potting soil. Transplant a small bunch of flowers into the jar, adding extra soil as needed on top. The jars can be done now, or you can add other features, such as vinyl silhouettes like bunnies or Easter eggs, or mix it up with polka dots, etc.!
This craft is so easy to do, and it brightens any table setting. The flowers can be replanted outside once the ground officially thaws, so it’s also a great hostess gift!
