In our master class we will use special small jars, however you can use any glass containers with a lid. We also chose eucalyptus twigs for design, while you can completely choose any plants and flowers for decorating bonbonnieres.
First of all, we need to color our jars. To do this, glue them with tape. Cut a few pieces of duct tape to create a striped design. The wide ribbon can be cut in half to make narrow strips..
Take strips of tape and glue the jar on four sides from the bottom to the neck. In order not to be mistaken, carefully look at the picture. In the next step, the tape will be removed, so do not worry about its color. Also seal the neck of your jar.
It's time to decorate our stripes. Take the paint in a spray can and spray it on a jar. The paint will paint the glass surface in a silver mirror color. It is necessary to allow the paint to dry and, if necessary, apply another coat.
When the paint has dried, remove pieces of tape from the glass surface and the neck. You will get a beautiful striped design. Fill the jar with sweet candies.
Now is the time to decorate our bonbonnieres. Close the jars with stoppers. Next, fasten small wooden labels on the neck of the jar, on which you can write the initials of guests using acrylic paints and a thin brush. In the hole in the label, place the stem of the eucalyptus. Marvelous bonbonnieres are ready!
Such nice gifts will leave only a pleasant impression on guests. Such bonbonnieres are suitable for a wedding in mint color, since eucalyptus and white mint sweets are the best suited for such a celebration.
You can use a variety of fillings: cookies, sweets and even sea salt! Decorate bonbonnieres with bright plants and flowers, for example, cornflowers or daisies that will fit exactly into your wedding style.
