Ode to the theme of Spring into Spring, I put together some Garden Gift Jars, to help give a little Spring into Spring to someone else. Think neighbor gift, teacher gift, basically anyone! They are simple to craft and perfect to give.
I was sent the mystery box of supplies from The Ribbon Retreat with all these goodies:
Garden Gift Jars Tutorial:
To embellish the jars I used the flowers and the burlap, but you have creative reign and could use the ribbon and burlap, or ribbon and flowers, or all 3. I cut the burlap to a length that would wrap around the entire jar:
I found the burlap a bit wider than I wanted for the size of jar I was using, so I folded in some pleats. I secured the pleats with a few dabs of hot glue and then wrapped the burlap around the jar and secured it in the back with a bunch of hot glue. I then used the hot glue to attach the flower to the center front of the jar.
The embellishments really make the jars into gifts – so perfect!
I filled the jars with a few gardening supplies – gloves, hoe, and some colorful seed packets.
Just load them in the jars and that’s all there is to it!
I love simple and awesome gifts like these, and I love the idea of giving Garden Gift Jars a way to jump into Spring!

Hi Mandy! I love this idea! I have a friend who’s husband just left for basic training that I’m sure would appreciate a cute gift like this, plus it gives me an excuse to make them! Thank so much for the idea!
