Let me tell you how to make a beautiful decoration

Great for decorating anywhere!

You will only need 5 simple items:

  1. Mason Jars
  2. Spray paint (any color)
  3. Potting soil
  4. Flowers (seeds of your choice)
  5. Permanent marker (any color)


Take any size mason jar and spray paint it any color you choose preferably out side. Let dry over night. Next day rise and shine!Take a permananet marker of your color and create designs or quotes on your Mason Jar. Be Creative!! You will then fill your Mason jar 3/4 of the way full with potting soil. Apply seeds as directed on the back of the package. You will then need to fill the rest of the jar with soil to cover the seeds about 2 inches. Water as directed on flower pack and watch your spring flowers grow!
