Celebrating~My Little Ballerina

My Little Ballerina had her recital on Saturday and these are the flowers we gave her at the end. 
I wanted to find a Special way to display them for her so she could remember her performance all week!
A comment from Yanet, over at 3 Sunkissed Boys, about her teacher appreciation, gift could not have come at a better time!  Check out her Teacher vase jars that inspired me to make this Ballerina vase jar.

Here is how I did it:
I hot glued a bobby pin onto the outside of a quart sized canning jar, just like Yanet.  I also bent it a little to make it curve with the jar, as she suggested.

Then, I cut a 12x24 inch piece of tulle. 
(I couldnt get it to show up so I took a picture of it in front of my screen.) 

Then I scrunched it together in the middle. 

And then slid in into the bobby pin, all the way to the curve.

Then I wrapped a 2-3 inch piece of pink ribbon around it and hot glued it in the back

Then I dotted some glue onto the seam in back and pressed it onto the jar so it would stay down.

Then I trimmed the bottoms of the tulle to make it even.

Once the tutu was done,  I slid in this little card that
I made with a photo of her holding her flowers right after the recital.

And it is a perfect way for us to Celebrate that she is our little Ballerina as long as her flowers last.

Thanks for sharing your post, Yanet!!  I love this little jar.
