Lavender Table Decoration – easy!


This Lavender Table Decoration, is so Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy to make. You can use it for dinner, for weddings, for a garden party whatever!

I love a little crafting and it really is so beautiful and would cost a fortune to buy. I love the idea of making something so pretty out of almost nothing! I know this isn’t up cycling but I also like that too

All you need is:

  • Jam Jar, Lavender, Sellotape, Scissors, Brown String or ribbons, Small candle

Bonus is it also lasts quite a long time… and makes your house smell amazing too

So beautiful, so fragrant and so low cost.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy



  • Jam Jar
  • Lavender
  • Selotape
  • Scissors
  • Brown String or ribbons
  • Small candle

Preparation Method

  1. Start by cutting your lavender from the garden – make sure you cut long enough stake to be able to cover the whole of the jam jar
  2. Gather together 7/8 stalks of lavender making sure they are level on the flower end
  3. Using Selotape secure to the jam jar, carry on doing this until the jar is completely covered (at this point the stalks will be hanging over the bottom, see pic
  4. When the jar is covered, take your scissors and cut off the stalks level with the bottom of the jam jar
  5. Tie some nice brown string or ribbons around the jar
  6. Pop a candle in and light – wonderful aroma and great outdoors
  7. As with all candles do not leave unattended and make sure your lavender doesn’t catch fire!
  8. Should last a few days as the lavender will simply dry out
  9. Enjoy!!
