I poured some white paint inside my mason jars and swirled it around slowly. I turned and swirled until my entire jar was painted white inside. I did this for all 4 jars. Then I turned them over and put Popsicle sticks underneath them on Styrofoam plates so that the extra paint would come out and my jars would dry. It took about 2 days for my jars to dry.
Then when my jars were dry, I wrapped some (not sure of the right name) twine around the necks of my jars and hot glued them in place. Originally I had planned on putting the twine around the center of my jars. I'm really glad I went with my second thought and wrapped it around the top only.
Finally, when that was all done, I had my kids walk down to the pond we have around here and cut some of the dried grass, weed, plant, whatever its called and that completed my center piece. I still need to go sometime today and get some more to finish it, but I love how it turned out! I'm so excited about this idea and the look of it. It turned out much better than it did in my head.
Again, this cost me nearly nothing. I think I paid $1.00 for the rack. Everything else I had or borrowed. (the twine and white paint.) The hubby wasn't too sure about my idea when I told him what I had planned, but I think he was pleasantly surprised too. I LOVE how this turned out!
