All materials were purchased at Michael’s with the exception of glasses are from IKEA and flowers/greenery from the yard.


Quick Tip: Instead of potpourri shapes, use a bag of nuts in the shell for a rustic, edible touch. Walnuts, Brazil nuts and Almonds work best. (And taste good too!)


Step 1: Wrap small vase and glass in moss, using crochet thread to wrap and secure around the cylinder. Trim the moss on top and bottom of glass with scissors.


Step 2: Fill the large glass cylinder with rocks (approx. 2 inches to cover the bottom). Bury the dragon vine in the rocks and finish with remaining moss.


Step 3: Fill remaining moss-covered cylinders with greenery, flowers, nuts or small potpourri pieces.


Step 4: Remove spiral wood pieces from vine to wrap around extra greenery for napkin embellishment.


Step 5: Add crystals to branch pieces, as desired by using hot glue or wrapping/weaving around stick pieces.
