  1. This is adorable! Could u post or send me the pdf file for the apple thank you? I couldn't find it anywhere.

  2. This post is not available at the linked site. Could you please tell me know you made the letters stay in place? Did you hot glue them?
    Thank you!

    1. They probably put a smaller glass inside to keep letters pressed to jar.

    2. I too wondered how I was going to get the letters to stay in place. So I made an inner "vase" out of tin foil - hollow on top and bottom -- and placed a pop can inside to keep it firm. I then slid the letters between the foil and the jar. The foil kept the letters in place. I then put the flowers inside the foil. The only thing was that you could see the water when I filled the jar but the foil still kept the letters in place.

  3. possibly those craft styrofoam blocks?
