Lay one jar on top of the kraft paper vertically. Then, run the glue stick along the kraft paper's edge on the right-hand side (Image 1).

Roll kraft paper around the first jar and adhere the sticky side of the kraft paper to the opposite side (Image 2). Repeat for second and third jars.

Glue the back of each stenciled letter individually onto kraft paper, starting with M (Image 1). Repeat this step with the other letters and their jars to spell MOM (Image 2).

Fill jars with flowers (Image 1) or any other treasures that you want to include in your centerpiece for Mom for her Mother's Day celebration.
