Mother's Day is coming up, and in our house, that means flowers! Since I had a big stash of empty jelly jars just waiting for a craft, I thought of these cute DIY vases. All you need are some jars and some yarn. Just wrap the yarn around, cross it to hold in place, and keep wrapping. When you get to the end of the yarn, just tuck the loose end under to hold it in place.

How We Did It

Jar + Yarn = Vase

If you're starting with clean jars, there's no prep work at all. If you're recycling and need to remove the label, learn from my mistake and get that done before you have three kids demanding to know when they could start making vases. (The smarter way to do it would be to soak the label with vegetable oil, let it sit for an hour or so, then scrub it off.)

Jar + Yarn = Vase

Older kids might want to experiment with layering different colors of yarn, or try wrapping it in neat rows. But I think even the overlapping wrapping looks really fun, and it's easy enough that even little kids can participate.

We had such a good time creating this set, we decided to create a second set to give as gifts!

I'm totally going to do this for a baby shower I'm hosting in a few weeks. Love!
