DIY Decor Jar Of Fairy Wishes

2 Materials

A 'Jar Of Fairy Wishes'...Isn't this the most special idea.
And what a wonderful gift for a fairy lover to decorate the home decor.
You can make the jar of fairy wishes any size you like, but I opted for a cute mini hexagonal style jar.
These wee jars come in a range of sizes and you'll find them at Briscoes homestore in New Zealand.
I chose it because of the blue gingham print lid, knowing that this jar of fairy wishes would be on a shelf with my blue and white home decor pieces.
To make your own 'Jar Of Fairy Wishes' you'll need:
*Dried dandelion seed heads
(whole and in pieces - I just picked them whenever I saw them and popped them into a large glass in my china cabinet and left the for about three weeks to dry out.)

*A jar with a lid or cork top.
(remember the bigger the jar the more dried dandelion you will need)
*Cord, ribbon or string to tie a bow at neck of jar.
*Scrapbook embellishments to decorate the lid or cork of the jar.

Carefully fill your jar with whole and pieces of dandelion seed heads.
Embellish the lid to pretty it up and to hide the writing on it.
I used a pre cut flower shape I glued this in place.
Then I topped that shape with another sequined flower shape that was a little smaller.

Using blue and white twisted cord I tied a bow at the neck of the jar,
 and knotted the cut ends. Then finished the bow with two blue and white paper flowers each side.

I love fairies and I'm loving this Jar Of Fairy Wishes...
It looks so pretty on my shelf unit with the other blue and white pieces.
