Craft Lightning and Behind the Scenes for Hobby Farm Home

So yesterday, we talked about how easy it is to make a redbud or lilac jelly (or ANY floral jelly for that matter!).  Today, we are going to talk about how to gift them.  I am participating in Craft Lightning this week, so today's little gift craft will take no more than 15 minutes!
(PS -- Creating the jelly itself only takes about 15 minutes as well, minus the 24 hours waiting time!!)

So basically, we are just going to spice up the jars a little bit.  I used this same technique in my feature article in Hobby Farm Homes this month (Check out the issue for recipes on making your own homemade condiments -- including perennial picnic favs like ketchup, mustard,and BBQ!)

The topper is so simple it can barely be called a craft, but totally transforms the jars into little rustic gifts instead of just a can of something, you know?  Simply cut a circle of burlap (ragged edges are awesome!) and secure it with a piece of raffia or twine.  I used a bleached burlap and basic brown garden sisal for mine, but you could certainly change up the colors for different looks!

For our redbud and lilac jellies, I used the same white burlap and twine, but added little tags as well!  They are simply pricing tags (they are super, super cheap -- like 1,000 for 10 bucks on amazon HERE / also available in smaller quantities) and spruced up with little colored pencil drawings.
