Spring Vase Filler

Friday I stopped in one of my favorite little antique stores. I left empty handed but one of the booths had  apothecary jars for sell with a woodland theme filler/arrangement and they were selling for $65-$85 a piece which I thought was insane! My next stop was Micheal's craft store for the supplies to make my own creations. I got all the supplies for $30 for 3 jars plus I have left overs if I want to make more later.

Here are some of the supplies....

I picked up a few sticks and acorns from the yard to add. I just used a hot glue gun to place a few pieces together, some are just layered in the jar. It took me about an hour to finish and viola, a fresh new spring/summer vase filler.

Here are some close up pictures looking down into the jars...

Easy Easy Easy!
