I can’t believe fall is here. Especially due to the overwhelming heat & humidity here in Coastal Carolina. As much as I love the fall, its a bit confusing since it feels like summer… Alas, I’m making the best of what I have to work with decor wise, since everything is pretty much still summery and green.
I am excited to be sharing this post alongside a group of fun bloggers. Together we each creating our own unique jar. So, naturally, I am creating “nature in a jar.”
I can walk out my front door and find an abundance of pine cones and other natural elements that have fallen from our trees.
A few miles away, I can gather shells from the beach. One jar will be transformed into a coastal candle holder and the other jar, a mixture of pine cones, acorns and rustic leaves.
What You Need:
- 3 large heritage jars
- 12 small pine cones
- 20 acorns
- dried leaves
- mini pumpkins(Micheals)
- dried red berries branched
Fill the bottom of the jar with acorns. Otherwise, if you scatter them among the pine cones and leaves, they’ll get lost in the shuffle and won’t stand out.
Next, add several pine cones, followed by the red berries branches and last, the rustic leaves. I found everything in my backyard except the berry branches. Those I purchased from a local flower shop.
Jar #2 & #3
For Jars 2 & 3, I added pine cones to both jars. One jar was only pine cones, and the other had a mixture of mini pumpkins. I wanted contrast for each shelf in my pantry.
I am lucky to be close to the beach, so I always have an abundance of shells handy. This jar will be perfect size to create a candle holder for my living space.
- large jar
Fill the jar half way with a mixture of shells. Dig a little hole to place the candle holder…and
