Spring Mason Jar Centerpiece
Hey everyone, I’m Simply Shalese, here to make something awesome with you guys! Today we will be making an adorable Spring mason jar centerpiece. Let’s get started!
1.5 inch wide lavender celebration ribbon – 24 inches long
1.5 inch wide pink celebration ribbon – 24 inches long
Hot glue gun
Placing the Bow Wire
The first thing I do is fold the bow wire in half and place it in the center of the bowdabra. I like to use about 8-9 inches of bow wire.
Adding your Ribbon
Next, I’m going to take my 24 inch long ribbon and fold it in half. Then scrunch the ribbon in the center. I prefer a uniform scrunch by folding the ribbon in half, bring the front and the back up then place it down in the center of the mini bowdabra. The amount of ribbon you use is completely up to you. If you want a larger bow, use more ribbon. If you want a smaller bow, use less ribbon.
Adding your Loops
Since there is a measuring tool present on the mini bowdabra, I can use it to help estimate the size of my loops. My loops are about 2.5 inches each. And I scrunch each loop and place it down.
Use your wand to help scrunch everything together
Tying the Wire
Once you’e added your loops, give it one final scrunch. Then take the bow wire, the two open ends inside of the loop. Hold the bow in place and give it a nice tug. Then remove it from the bowdabra. Tie it in a know a few more times just to make sure it’s nice and secure.
Adding the Center
Take a small piece of ribbon and fold it into thirds. Then use the glue gun to hot glue it in place. Next, tie the bow wire again a couple of times to help secure the center.
Curling your Tails
I chose to use celebration ribbon so that I could curl my tails but you can use wire edged ribbon if you chose to do so. To curl the tails, take your scissors and firmly press against the back of the ribbon, at the top of the tail and bring it down to the bottom. The firmer you press, the curlier the tail will be.
Adding the Bow to the Jar
Once you’re all done, place some hot glue on the back of the bow and firmly press it against the mason jar. I repeat these steps with the lavender ribbon to show how different colors bring can the different flowers in the arrangement. You can use whatever flowers and colors you’d like. Just have fun with it and make it your own!
