Picnic mason jar centerpiece
Burlap Ribbon (2 1/2″ x 12″)

Rope Burlap Ribbon (2 1/2″ x 12″)
Small Battery-Operated Tea light
Mason Jar (5″ tall)
Hot Glue Gun
“I love Mason jar centerpieces, and this is a really cute one that you can use for a spring or summer party. So, I’m just going to do kind of a thick strip of glue, and I’m just going to glue that on without burning myself, I hope.
Next, I bring it around, and I’m going to put a little line of glue here, and also on top. Whoops, looks like I need more glue. So then, I put a little strip here and here. I grab this side, and I’m just going to push this down. The next thing that I’m going to do is take this really cool burlap mesh and I’m going to just glue it on top and bring it around. Whoops, it didn’t hold. There we go. And then I’m going to just bring this around, put another dab of glue here and just go ahead and glue that down. Then I’m going to put my Mason jar aside.
Now make your bow
Now I’m going to take my Mini Bowdabra, take the wand out, and I’m going to take a piece of hemp. I’ll use this to tie my bow instead of my Bowdabra Bow Wire. And I’m going to just lay that in, tuck it under so it stays out of my way.
Then I’m going to take this little piece of burlap that I cut, and I’m just going to scrunch it into the Bowdabra. Next, I take another piece of hemp and just fold it back and forth like I’m making a little bow out of the hemp. Now, I’m going to just do exactly what I do with my Bowdabra Bow Wire. I’m going to pull it through, hold this down, pull it really tight while it’s still in my Mini Bowdabra. Separate the ends and bring it around to the back. I’m going to tie a knot. And then I’m just going to let this kind of hang.
For the next step what I’m going to do is on the back where the knot is, just put a little piece of glue. And I’m going to just glue a piece of this burlap so that it will match what I did on my bottle.
Finishing your centerpiece
And I’m just going to then glue this onto the front of my bottle here. And I’m just going to let that dry, and then I’ll shape it in a second. To finish, I’m just taking some raffia and putting it into my bottle, and scrunch all that down. And then I take my little candle and put that right in the center. For a final step I shape my bow. You have this really, really pretty centerpiece that looks great for a garden party or a picnic.
