Spring has sprung and summer is on its way, so why not brighten up your home with a pretty posy in your used Duerr’s jam jar?
Here are our top tips for jazzing up a Duerr’s jam jar:
Firstly, you need to make sure you wash out all of our beautifully sticky jam from the empty jar. We know it’s delicious but flowers aren’t so keen!
You can choose whether to remove the label or not. If you do decide to take it off, the best way to get off any stubborn pieces of paper is to soak the jar in warm soapy water.
Once dry, carefully wrap some brown string around the neck of the jar for that rustic farmhouse look.
Measure your favourite flowers against the height of the jar so that the heads will emerge gracefully, then trim the stems accordingly. Remember, if you cut the stems diagonally the plants find it easier to take the water.
Arrange your flowers until you’re happy, and then place your new vase somewhere special.
