A flower vase jar is great, but this is better– check out this cool mason jar craft contraption with a Paperwhites bulb growing inside it! If you have a gardener on your gift list this year, this is the perfect homemade gift for them! Give the gift that keeps on giving with a beautiful flower-to-be inside a glass jar!
I love the idea of giving a flower bulb as a gift, especially to a gardener or someone in the landscaping business. You’d basically be creating a scaled model of what they take pride in and choose to do for a living, except yours would be in a mason jar with tiny model trees surrounding it, etc. You’d love decorating the jar, and they’d love getting it as a gift– everybody wins! Now for the bonus– every time they look at the beautiful flower, they will think of you and smile! This craft project would also make a great hostess gift if you will be enjoying the holidays in someone else’s home.
At first glance, the sight of the bulb looked a little creepy, but oh does it turn into a beautiful flower! Take a look…
How gorgeous is that! I think I might have found a new favorite flower! If I were going to give this as a gift, I would probably give a picture of the flower along with it, just so the person I’m giving it to knows there will be a beautiful outcome!
Check out the tutorial on this darling little gift via the link below, and thanks to All Things Cottage for the beautiful picture of the grown / mature Paperwhite! They also have more information on this flower if you’d like to read more about it.
