St. Patrick's Day Centerpiece

St. Patrick's Day brings to mind pots of gold, leprechauns, rainbows and shades of green. To help celebrate this holiday and bring the luck of the Irish to your home, create a centerpiece/arrangement like this one and the leprechauns will surely stop by!

Supplies : 

*1 Tall Glass Jar
*1 Clear Glass Vase (that will fit inside your jar leaving room all the way around it)
*Jellybeans in asst. shades of green
*14 White single stem roses
*Kelly Green & Lime Green Glitter
*Wire Edged Ribbon in Green
*Elmer's School Glue
*Lime Green "Mesh" ribbon
*Small plastic black "pot"
*Pieces of Gold

Step 1 : 
 Fit the glass vase inside of your glass jar. Fill the space between the vase and the jar with the jellybeans. Jellybeans can be quite expensive, so by inserting the vase in the jar first it helps limit the amount of jellybeans you have to purchase. 

Step 2 :
After you have filled your jar with jellybeans, it is time to glitter tip your roses. Get out three bowls and pour the glue, lime glitter and kelly green glitter each into a bowl. One at a time, dip the tips of the roses into the glue and then into a glitter. Continue until you have glitter tipped all of your roses and then place them inside the vase in your jar. 

Step 3 : 
The final step to complete your centerpiece is to accessorize it! Tie your green wire edged ribbon around the jar and then into a double loop bow. Set your pot of gold above your bow, resting on the jelly beans and right under your roses. Finally, cut strips of the lime mesh ribbon and randomly insert them into your flower bunch. 

Wishing you peace, love and a little pixie dust,
