Simple Spring Centerpiece

Today’s post is coming to you from Shonee, at Hawthorne and Main. We absolutely love Shonee’s blog, since she always has so many amazing ideas, and we are so excited that she is sharing this fun Simple Spring Centerpiece.

Hello Elizabeth Joann Design readers! This is Shonee from Hawthorne and Main and I am super excited to be here today!!  I know that spring is still a few weeks away but I wanted to share this Spring centerpiece idea with you.


– clean glass jar

– painters tape


-fake mini eggs



To start, measure down about 2 inches from the top of the jar.  Add a strip of painters tape.  The tape is there to help control the glue.  This way it doesn’t get too out of control and go where you don’t want it to go. 

Once the tape is in place, press it down firmly. 

Grab your craft glue and use your finger to spear on a thick layer of glue.  Don’t worry if you get some on the tape, this is what it is for. 

Clean your fingers really well before you add the moss, other wise it will be a sticky mess!!

Once the top of the jar is covered in glue sprinkle the moss on the glue. 

After the jar is covered in moss gently press the moss with your fingers to ensure it is adhering well to the jar. 

 Once the moss is on you can remove the tape and admire your beautiful straight line!!!

Now it’s time to add embellishments!!

Grab some ribbon and tie it around the jar just below the moss.

Use a spring vase filler such as these mini eggs, to fill the jar.

(hint- the dollar store has the moss I used plus the eggs in store right now!!)

I already has this piece of barn wood on hand and used it to place my jars on! I love the fun spring pop of color that this center piece brings.

Have you ever used moss to craft with before?

Isn’t this such a fun project to welcome in the warmer weather? For more awesome ideas, visit Shonee’s blog, Hawthorne and Main! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us, Shonee!
