These are the baby jar vases I created for Shiloh’s first birthday party (that I didn’t get photos of at her actual party). They were just too cute and chic to stow away with all my other saved glass jars, so I decided to add them to my kitchen window décor.
These are stage-3 sized jars, which are a little taller than the standard size baby jars (stage-1 and stage-2). To clean them: I soaked the jars in hot soapy water for at least 30-minutes and scrubbed off the glue with a rough sponge (like the green side on the yellow and green sponges) with more dish soap. It took a bit of scrubbing, but once the glue started coming off it came off rather quickly. I’m sure glue removal gels like Goo-Gone would work well too; I just didn’t have any on hand and I’m cheap. I filled the jars with dried moss and added the flowers. These jars would also look pretty with burlap and/or lace added, if you wanted to further the shabby chic look of them. I love the simplicity of the plain glass and moss, but definitely will not rule out anything to change them up in the future.
