Farmhouse Décor: Jar Flower Holder

I wanted to explore the farmhouse décor trend and asked my niece if she had any outdoor farmhouse style decorating ideas. I have that flower wheelbarrow in the backyard, the wooden table to grow my bagged vegetables, and we installed a shed (a much-needed shed!). Now, I wanted something that might match.

She brought in four ideas, including the terrific little DIY farmhouse house number sign I shared a last month, this versatile Farmhouse Décor: Age and Stencil a Crate and this Farmhouse Décor: Easy Painted Mirror. As a fifth farmhouse decor piece, we did this sweet little Farmhouse Décor: Laundry Room Organizer.

We actually made everything at the same time as these five projects use a lot of the same materials. Not only did it keep costs down, it sped things along.

Farmhouse Décor: Jar Flower Holder Notes:

• The vinegar solution you make MUST sit for at least 24 hours uncovered. If you cover the solution, it might oxidize and turn orange.

• To remove the baby food jar label easily, simply fill it with hot water until the glue softens on the label. Pull the label off. Any residue can be removed with a quick scrub from a steel wool pad.

• A baby food jar was used on this craft. If you do not have a baby food jar, a small relish jar, mustard jar, jelly/jam jar would also work.

• If you plan on hanging this outside, you will either want it under a covered area or add a coat or three of varnish before adding the hose clamp.

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy Farmhouse Décor: Jar Flower Holder can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby.

Then, we stapled the twine to the back of the plaque and added two brads on each side to hold it as the last thing we wanted was for it to slip and fall.

For more farmhouse decor, check out this sweet little jar flower holder and this Farmhouse Décor: Easy Painted Mirror. This versatile Farmhouse Décor: Age and Stencil a Crate can be darked to taste, and as an fifth farmhouse decor piece, we did this sweet little Farmhouse Décor: Laundry Room Organizer.

We actually made everything at the same time as these five projects use lot of the same materials for all the projects. Not only did it keep costs down, it sped things along.

DIY Farmhouse House Numbers Sign Notes:

• Tea stain: you can use any black tea to form this tea stain. Lipton was used as it gives a reddish-hue. If you do not want a reddish-hue, avoid Lipton tea.

• The vinegar solution you make MUST sit for at least 24 hours uncovered. If you cover the solution, it might oxidize and turn orange.

• Your plaque may be made of inferior grade wood. While that is nice for a farmhouse project – adding imperfections – it may require a second coat of tea staining, varnishing, etc. Wait at least 12 hours before applying a second coat. It can take that long for the tea and the vinegar solutions to develop and darken.

• Bleeding may also occur when inferior wood is used. If it bothers you a lot, try and hide any bleeding using the numbers or welcome sign. Remember that higher quality wood is less likely to bleed.

• Make certain whatever glue you use will dry clear, or use goop.

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy Farmhouse House Numbers Sign can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby.

• 24 hours after making your tea stain and vinegar solution, cover a work surface against spills or stains.
• Place your wooden plaque down on the covered surface, and tea stain the entire plaque, including the sides. Do not worry about any distressing – you want some distressing as it adds charm to the finished piece.

St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath

St. Patrick's Day Luck o' the Irish Wreath. Dress up your front door for St Patty's day with this easy to make St. Patrick's Day wreath door decoration. This is a fast, inexpensive wreath decoration that just might bring a bit of the luck o' the Irish your way.


Dress up your front door for St Patty’s day with this easy to make St. Patrick’s Day wreath door decoration. This is a fast, inexpensive wreath decoration that just might bring a bit of the luck o’ the Irish your way.

St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath

Find your pot o’ gold on this charming St. Patrick’s Day door décor wreath! This wreath is meant to be abundant, but not complete around the straw wreath. You, of course, can do what you like. If you do not want any exposed straw, I’d suggest making the balls come up both sides of the wreath (duplicating each side), and then placing the shamrocks and coins at the top.


Like so many crafts this is simply an idea for you to begin with and expand upon to make your own. You can follow my steps exactly, or go off in your own direction.

Notes:

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath craft can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby

• Take the straw wreath outside to unwrap it, and then give it a good shake outdoors! This will remove the loose straw, and keep your house tidy.

• Christmas bulbs were used on this craft – because I am cheap. Different textures, and various shades make for wonderful depth and juxposition of colors and textures. You can use craft balls in different shades of gold and green, but adhering them to the wreath may be a bit tricky.

• Quilter t-pins + hot glue were used to attach the bulbs. You could also use the floral picks with the wire at the end, or you could try and use only hot glue, but it may be a bit difficult.

• Instead of felt shamrocks, you could cut out paper ones – providing your wreath is not expoded to the elements.

• You could also use pot o’ gold felt cutouts.

• You can purchase the “gold coins” at the dollar store for a buck, or your favorite craft store for more.

St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath Materials:

14″ Straw Wreath
• 12 Bulbs, assorted size and color
Gold Coins
• Felt Shamrocks
• Ribbon for Wreath Wrap
• Ribbon for Bow (or buy a premade bow)
Quilter Pins
• Assorted Glitter Fill (leaves were used)
• Scissors
Glue Gun
• Hot Glue
• Wire Cutters

St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath Directions:

• Unwrap the straw wreath and shake for loose straw. This is best done outside so as to keep your house and work area clean.
• Wrap the wreath with green ribbon (a narrow ribbon was used). Hot glue the ribbon in place on the wreath.

• Layer the baubles (balls):
• Insert a quilting pin into the hanger portion of your bulb (at the top of the ornament cap).
• Insert the pin into the straw wreath, then, dab a dot of hot glue under the ball to more firmly affix it in place.
• Note: the pin is going to anchor across the ball wire hanger and you want to push that quiting pin in sideways to hide the ornament cap (hanger and pin) in the wreath and away from the exterior of the finished wreath product.
• Proceed to attach more bulbs in the same manner. Pay attention to size, texture, and holes. If you want to place some smaller bulbs on top of the larger wreath-adhered bulbs, you can hot glue them to the existing bulbs, and hide those holes. 12 bulbs were used in total on this wreath. You can use more or less according to your personal taste and preferences.
• Once you are finished with your bulbs, take a step back and make certain they are as complete as you would like, and firmly adhered to the wreath.

St. Patrick's Day Luck o' the Irish Wreath
Find your pot o' gold on this charming St. Patrick's Day door décor wreath! This wreath is meant to be abundant, but not complete around the straw wreath. You, of course, can do what you like. If you do not want any exposed straw, I'd suggest making the balls come up both sides of the wreath (duplicating each side), and then placing the shamrocks and coins at the top.
Active Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Difficulty easy
Estimated Cost 10.00

Materials

  • 14" Straw Wreath
  • 12 Bulbs, assorted size, and color
  • Gold Coins
  • Felt Shamrocks
  • Ribbon for Wreath Wrap
  • Ribbon for Bow (or buy a premade bow)
  • Quilter T-Pins
  • Assorted Glitter Fill (leaves were used)

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue
  • Glue Gun
  • Wire Cutters

Instructions

• Unwrap the straw wreath and shake for loose straw. This is best done outside so as to keep your house and work area clean.

• Wrap the wreath with green ribbon (a narrow ribbon was used). Hot glue the ribbon in place on the wreath.

• Layer the baubles (balls):

• Insert a quilting pin into the hanger portion of your bulb (at the top of the ornament cap).

• Insert the pin into the straw wreath, then, dab a dot of hot glue under the ball to more firmly affix it in place.

• Note: the pin is going to anchor across the ball wire hanger and you want to push that quiting pin in sideways to hide the ornament cap (hanger and pin) in the wreath and away from the exterior of the finished wreath product.

• Proceed to attach more bulbs in the same manner. Pay attention to size, texture, and holes. If you want to place some smaller bulbs on top of the larger wreath-adhered bulbs, you can hot glue them to the existing bulbs, and hide those holes. 12 bulbs were used in total on this wreath. You can use more or less according to your personal taste and preferences.

• Once you are finished with your bulbs, take a step back and make certain they are as complete as you would like, and firmly adhered to the wreath.

• Hot glue felt shamrocks to the other side of the wreath. Insert a quilter pin to hold in place.

• Place another set of shamrocks on top of the first set to hide the quilter pins. Hot glue in place.

• Note: 7 shamrocks, two different colors, two different textures (4,3) were used in this configuration. You can use the same or different shamrocks according to your personal preference and taste.

• Make a bow (or use a premade one), and using quilter pins and hot glue, adhere it to the wreath between the balls and shamrocks.

• Cut down the sparkly fill leaves and insert a few behind the balls. You are trying to hide any holes, as well as give some texture and the appearance of flow (outward). Use quilter pins + hot glue to secure in place.

• Hot glue "gold coins" to the shamrocks and/or wreath and/or bulbs.

• Give the wreath a slight shake to make sure everything is well secured.
