Gratitude Tree - Oui Jar



My first project repurposing a Oui yogurt jar ! 
I have a couple more to share soon. 

After removing the labels and cleaning the glass well,
I painted it with chalk paint then lightly sanded it in places.
I then hand lettered it with a brush and acrylic paint.
I placed a small piece of floral foam inside,
hot gluing it into place. 
I gathered some small branches from my yard
and stuck them in the foam.
Moss from my old floral supplies stash tops it off.
Tiny paper punched tags were written on
then hot glued on the branches with tiny twine bows.
A strip of torn plaid cotton fabric, more twine and a
small wooden heart (painted) finish it off, 




It's a bit sparse, hoping that the kids would want
to add some tags to it, too. 







Thanks for looking =)
