I am so excited to be able to share with you this fun and easy craft that is dressing up our backyard!
I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to work with the new David Tutera Casual Elegance collection. This new line is sold exclusively at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. Although this line is sold under Bridal, it is so versatile as you will soon see! I promise, you are going to want to run out and get your hands on this collection. It is AMAZING!
Here is just a sampling of what this collection offers:
I honestly had a million ideas, but in the end, I really wanted something I could use to dress up my back patio.
Here’s what I used to create this adorable Rustic Ball Jar Garland:
David Tutera Casual Elegance Burlap Ribbon
David Tutera Casual Elegance Burlap Ribbon (with large squares)
David Tutera Casual Elegance Lace Ribbon
David Tutera Casual Elegance Hemp Cord
David Tutera Casual Elegance Lg. Burlap Flowers
David Tutera Casual Elegance Sm. Burlap Flowers
2 Small Ball Jars
2 Large Ball Jars
4 colors or chalk paint
Several Small Antique Light Bulbs
First, I gathered up the 16 small burlap flowers and 16 antique light bulbs.
Next, I wrapped each burlap flower around the top of the light bulb.
Once those were all done, I tied them onto the hemp cord. I used hot glue to secure them to the bulb so there would be no way my bulbs would slip and come crashing to the ground!
I alternated flowered bulbs and plain bulbs. I LOVE the patina of the metal around the light bulbs, so I wanted to that show as well.
Just look at that aged metal goodness… LOVE!!
I also cut 6 inch strips from the lace ribbon and tied it to the hemp cord as well.
With all the bulbs and lace strips tied to the cord, I moved on to the next step…
…painting and decorating my jars.
I painted my jars with chalk paint and used the various types of David Tutera ribbons to decorate each jar. Each ribbon was attached in the back with hot glue.
Finally I attached the hemp cord and bulbs to the jars and added some artificial hydrangeas… my favorite!!
The last step, and always my favorite… decorate!! I attached my Rustic Ball Jar Garland to the tree that stands in the center of our patio.
I think from time to time I will add fresh flowers to my jars to change out the look.
I just love it!
