I made mom a gift for Mother's Day, though I was late in the offering. I got the idea from Blondie -- this was a project one of her local mini groups did where they made a little kitchen setting in a jar.
I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a well-made, locking jar. The hutch base is made from a House of Miniatures Hutch Cabinet that was missing the drawer pieces. I made a new false drawer front but left the doors off so I could display more minis. I built the hutch top from strip wood along with some laser cut brackets to add some interest. Mom likes blue, so I chose Folk Art French Blue.
The plates, canning jars, vase and cooking set are Hobby Lobby purchased miniatures. I printed a new cover to make a Betty Crocker Cooky Book, some recipe cards and a wall calendar to add a date to the project.
I printed a wine label for a bottle blank and made chocolate chip cookies from a tutorial by Sugar Charm Shop. I searched my minis stash for other items to add - cow pitcher from The Dolls House Emporium, tea pot, rolling pin from Honey and Bee, clock from The Dolls House Mall, and copper pot. I made Bonnie Lavish wildflowers for the vase.
Since the glass glares a bit, here is a photo of the full setup outside of the jar.
I love how it turned out, and so did mom! :D
