Let’s Get Started:



STEP 1: To create your basket theme on your wide mouth jar, simply apply tape and space it out horizontally, apply mod podge, and sprinkle glitter. Spray with your acrylic spray and then let it dry for 30 minutes to an hour. Now remove the tape.

STEP 2: Complete Step 1 again, but this time apply tape vertically.

STEP 3: Wrap twine around the top of your wide-mouth mason jar then attach the bow. Secure with hot glue.

STEP 4: Apply the mason jar lid on top of your foam and then trace with a sharpie, then cut your foam out using an X-Acto knife.

STEP 5: Mark your foam base at each corner, this will give you 4 marks. Cut the ends of your chevron straws at a diagonal and attach to foam base with hot glue. Apply hot glue to your foam base, and then add moss, baby’s breath, and roses. Trim roses and baby’s breath stems and apply hot glue prior to inserting them into foam.

STEP 6: Apply hot glue to the edges of your paper lantern, then close your lantern. Sit lantern on top of the foam base. Chevron straws will secure lanterns.

STEP 7: Wrap twine around the lantern and secure it to the foam base with a trimmed-down floral pin. Sit decorated foam base in a mason jar; it should fit snuggly. This easy-to-do baby shower centerpiece can fit any theme, whether for a girl, for a boy, or for a gender-neutral theme. Your options are limitless!


STEP 4: Set the table!
