How to make it
Step 1

Layer by layer, fill the pot with flowers. Use different flowers per layer, so that you end up with a colourful whole. After each layer of flowers, fill the pot with distilled water. You can also add the water at the end, when the pot is completely filled with the different flower layers. Distilled water will keep the flowers looking great a little bit longer, but you can use tap water if you don't have any. 

Step 2
Continue until the jar is filled to the brim. The lid of the pot prevents the flowers from moving. 

Step 3
Did you choose a large glass jar? Try using the greenery attached to the flowers as extra filling in the centre of the pot to ensure you don't have any gaps. Another handy tip: by using large tweezers, you can position your flowers more exactly and get a more polished end result.
