I love going to estate sales. Is it just me, or do you kind of get a rush and your pulse quickens when you find something really good? I love it! At an estate sale I bought a bell jar for $3.00. I didn't know what I was going to do with it. I just wanted it because I love bell jars and for $3.00 I figured I couldn't go wrong. Later on Pinterest, I saw this pin and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.
I made mine it in about 30 minutes and only spent $5.00 for the materials!
Materials you will need:
a glass bell jar
First, I got a twig from my back yard. I looked for one that had a few branches growing off of it and would also fit inside the bell jar. You can always cut or break off pieces if you need to in order for it to fit in the jar.
Next, I spent about $2.00 and bought a package of pre-wired butterflies at Hobby Lobby in the floral department.
Then I wrapped the wire around the end of the twig. You may want to use some pliers to help wrap the wire or use some gloves to protect your hands since the end of the wire can be sharp.
