DIY Nature Gifts in A Jar - the perfect Mohter's Day, Father's Day, Teacher's Appreciation Day, or Any Occasion Gift Made with Upcycled Materials and Things Found in Nature

DIY Nature Gifts In A Jar

These perfect gifts in a jar are made from Upcycled glass jars, fillers that are found in nature, such as beach glass or your favourite rocks, and photos of your favourite things to do outside. Imagine giving ( or receiving these lively treasures for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or even Teacher Appreciation Day! 

About the glass jars. I avoid using mason jars for crafting. Mason jars have a very long life and are perfectly suited for storing and preserving food, and I hesitate to use them for anything else. That said, I am not about to get all judgy on you, for your project, you can use whatever you like.

About the photos. We used our favourite pictures from seed catalogues and lawn and garden supply stores. We ended up with an image of a beautiful cherry blossom,  a garden bench surrounded with potted flowers, and a super fun image of a play structure.
