Easter Grass

I might have a small obsession of saving all my glass jars...whether its a spaghetti jar, a salsa jar, a cocktail sauce jar, whatever kind of jar... I save them and my collection is getting rather large. 

I was on pinterest the other day and I had seen some grass in baskets, and then I noticed that my new BF! was growing some as well, so of course I had to try this and since my collection of glass jars is getting a bit out of hand I thought they would be perfect for the grass.
So I gathered up my girls, my jars, some grass seed and some dirt.

We filled the jars with the dirt, added the grass seed, put more dirt on the top and then watered them with a squirt bottle.

I think the girls liked watering them the most.

I of course had to make some cute little sticks for the girls to add to there jar of grass.

I also mod podge fabric around the jars.

And below is my little Easton.....being Easton!

Hopefully, if all goes well we will have some Easter grass soon!
