- glass or plastic containers which preferably have straight sides; glue – universal clear mastic in a tube or a cartouche;
a dispensing gun (depending on the size of the glue container); a spatula; a base – newspaper; single-use gloves
The wall of the container should be smooth, clean and dry.
Create a mixture of forget-me-nots.
Measure the volume of the wall of the container (length, height). Measure the size of the wall on the base or at least map it out approximately. Sprinkle the mixture of forget-me-nots onto this surface. Straighten the forget-me-nots next to one another so they lie flat on the surface.
Apply stripes of glue to the wall of the container. Spread out the glue using the spatula.
Place the forget-me-nots onto the glued wall. Slowly turn the container. Do not press too hard. Individually fill in any areas where the forget-me-nots have failed to stick. Gently press all of the forget-me-nots to the base. Leave it to dry according to the glue instructions.
Complete the decoration. Tie a bow on a ribbon or add a tag. Place a tealight in the candle holder.
If you do not use gloves, first check that you can wash the glue from your hands.
Fill the jar with jam before decorating it. Boil it and allow it to cool.
