Thatch Cottage: Miniature Thatch Roof Tutorial. A thached roof; be still my heart. This tutorial is for a large house, but it definitely has a lot of pointers that would help with a smaller thatched roof.
We made something similar to this for a sunset beach wedding...the mouths of the jars were wrapped with long strands of sea grass and found beach objects - shells, stones, sea glass, bits of driftwood etc. were glued where the sea grass ends met....they created a lovely lit walkway up to the ocean front "altar" I have also made designs using contact paper, spraying the glass, then removing the contact paper...if you want them to last, spray with a matte sealant
