Whimsical Spring Garden Jar

I loved making these little gardening jars. They are decorated with gardening supply minitures, flowers and filled with packets of seeds. They will make an adorable gift for Easter,Mother's Day or a spring birthday. I used glass jars and spread colored sheetrock compound over the top. I was going to use my sparkly snow but since I was going to add acrylic paint, I just used the compound.
I was so excited this morning because I sold the top jar to the owner of a local shop where I find the little resin minitures, rake, ribbons ect. This second jar decorated with the hose and tools are now on my etsy. Soooo fun!!

How cute is that!!!
What a lovely gift for Mother's day. I love creating as well. I was visiting Lani and saw the titles of a few of the ladies blogs and thought I'd drop by to visit some new blogs today. It is alaways good to meet new friends and see the creations of others.
