Sunflowers in a Ball jar


The first thing you want to do is cut down your stems. I found it easiest to do this with a bread knife. I placed three sunflowers in my Ball jar with the water and then added a little Sprite. The soda tends to help them last longer.

Then I tied the jar off with some black ribbon and it was ready to go! This was such an easy and simple gift to make. The best part was seeing my friend's smile on her face when I dropped these pretty flowers off.
