What you'll need:

  • Baby food jar with lid
  • Small silk flowers
  • Rolling pin
  • White craft glue or hot glue gun
  • Green play dough or green modeling clay (you can use our homemade play dough below)

How to make it:

  1. If using the homemade play dough, follow recipe instructions below.
  2. Roll out the play dough or clay with rolling pin.
  3. Using the mouth of the jar as a cookie cutter, cut out a circle. If you use the lid as the cookie cutter you will not be able to close your jar when the time comes.
  4. Glue the play dough or clay into the lid.
  5. Stick flowers into the dough or clay. If using play dough, set lids aside to dry and harden over night.
  6. Screw the lid onto the jar, carefully inserting the flowers into the jar.
  7. Decorate the lid however you like. (We used a scrap of felt then tied a piece of ribbon on.)

Play dough recipe:

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 cup Salt
  • 1 cup warm Water
  • 1 teaspoon Oil
  • Food coloring
