1. Measure the height and circumference of your jar. Cut a piece of burlap the width of your jar's height and a little longer than your jar's circumference. Mine was 6 inches tall and 11 inches around, so I cut a 6" x 12" piece of burlap.
5. Cut off the stems of your flowers so that just the blooms show above the top of the vase. Fill the jar with water, add a few drops of bleach to keep the flowers fresh longer, and place the flowers in their cool container.
This quick project cost me nothing but a little time and I think it was a real day-brightener for my friend!
