  1. Remove canning jars from metal container. Remove the lids and paint Wicker White. Allow to dry.
  2. Paint the outside of the metal container with Aqua. Paint the metal word “Grow” with Pure Orange. Allow to dry.
  3. Using the liner brush, paint petals around the letter “o” in Wicker White. Start the brush stroke at the outer edge and drag towards the center. Allow to dry.
  4. Dab the dark moss randomly onto the metal container and the lids of the canning jars. Let the texture build up in places for a more natural look. When dry, apply the light moss in the same manner over the dark moss allowing areas of the dark moss to be predominant. Allow to dry.
  5. Cut an oval of fabric the size of the “o”. Glue to the back of the letter.
  6. Cut a rectangle of fabric the size of the bottom of the container. Lay or glue to the bottom.
  7. Cut and tie lengths of jute around the necks of the jars and finish in a bow.
  8. Place moss inside the jars. Cut apart sections of the plastic greenery and insert through screens in lids.
