Dragonfly Jars

8.5 x 11 miscellaneous VERTICAL - Page 149It’s Christmas in July! Last December, I found these beautiful, inexpensive acrylic dragonfly ornaments at WalMart. From the moment I saw them, I knew they were perfect for our back porch…in the summer. So I bought and stashed them for months.

Then I found these gorgeous blue glass canning jars in the canning section of our local grocery store. Again, a super economical find!

These dragonfly jars fare SO easy to assemble…

Items Needed:

  • Glass canning jars (a.k.a. Mason jars)
  • Acrylic ornaments
  • Scissors
  • Glue dots
  • Super Glue
  • Votive holder, candles, flowers, pebbles, etc. to fill the jars

Directions:

  1. Cut the strings off the ornaments.
  2. Play with how you want the ornament to sit on the glass jar.
  3. Once you have an idea of how to affix the ornament, place two glue dots on it; one on the top half and one on the tail. Make sure both glue dots will rest directly on the glass jar.
  4. Press the ornament on the glass and hold it for a few seconds while the glue dots adhere.
  5. Using Super Glue, use a drop or two between the rim of the glass and the ornament so it runs down between the two fora secure seal.
  6. Fill the jars with whatever you’d like!
