I made this vase for a very special event. It looks beautiful and is perfect for late summer through the last of the harvest holidays. I wanted to keep the look simple country, but with different flowers in the arrangement the possibilities are endless for looks.
- 2 Mason jars – 1 large, 1 smaller that fits inside the large one
- Mason Jar Flower arrangement Topper
- Dry Corn – some use gourmet pop corn, I used dried field corn
- Cut Flowers
Start by placing the flower arrangement topper on the smaller jar. Place the small jar into the large jar. Cover the inside small jar so no corn falls into it. Dump in the corn into the jar. Fill in the space between the 2 jars. Once that space is filled, carefully remove the cover of the inside jar. Before adding flowers, fill the small inside-jar half way with water to keep the cut flowers fresh.
Add the fresh cut flowers and wheat. When the flowers start to fade remove and replace with new ones.
By adding the inside jar, the fresh flowers can have water, if you don’t use an inside jar the flowers cannot have water or the corn will mold.
A big word of advice – make this outdoors!!!
