The jar is a Classico brand spaghetti sauce jar. I like that the Classico brand jars are square - the candle is flush with the glass. The filler is Generic Fruit Puff cereal. I used this cereal because a) it is cheap, and b) it reminds me of the opening page of Eric Carl's Very Hungry Caterpillar book, which our party theme.
The yellow flower on top was made by tracing the bottom of a water glass to cut several circular pieces of fleece. I folded some in thirds and some in fourths (I like variety) and used a simple hand stitch through the points of the folded piece. I waited to use glue until attaching to the lid to give me a little more fluidity when positioning the flower petals.
Here is a pic of a third folded petals.
With the remaining cereal, I made what I'm going to present as "Caterpillar Krispies". (Your basic Rice Krispie Bar recipe except with fruit puffs). Don't the cut edges look pretty?
