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 last week, and this sweet little jar flower holder.

We actually made everything at the same time as these four projects used 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.
