I recently came across a wedding blog that had declared that glass jars were so 2012. While yes I admit that ‘mason’ jars have had more than their 15 minutes of fame in the wedding world, two years on they are still a very affordable way to decorate your big day, and if you ask me, it’s what you do with them that counts.
So easy to find (think garage sales, dump stores, and empties from friends and family) these versatile props can be used in all sorts of ways, and today I give you ten ideas to get your creative juices flowing…
1. Silver mirror spray paint. It’s that simple and yet so effective. And the succulents are a perfect match! Check out the tutorial over at The Crafty Woman.
3. Let there be light. I am in LOVE with this idea and plan to make my own in the very near future. A plank of wood, rope, jars, sand and candles… this is totally worth a go! I could not find the link to the image source but if anyone does please let me know (I am craving some extra pics!)
4. Cutlery has never looked cooler. If you are throwing a more casual shindig, this diy idea by the Clever Pink Pirate is the perfect storage solution for your utensils. And a very cool idea for those glam BBQ’s!
5. A bloomin backdrop. These mini hanging vases by Lebenslustiger are made with nothing but a glass jar, some sting and some metal tape (you can use washi tape too!) What a fabulicious way to create a backdrop!
6. Sip on a drink or two. Not only are these vessels a little bit kick ass, but they are much more stable than their cocktail glass companions. Does that mean I can have another? Beaut blog Hello May says yes I can!
7. Bring something to the table. The smaller sister of number 3. this oh so simple project is the perfect centrepiece idea for your reception tables (and your home). Simply drill the holes, glue then nail the three pieces of wood together, glue the jar lids to the underside and then screw and unscrew the jars as required to fill and replace water. Finally pop in your single stem flower. Too easy! Image found at Artemis and Apollo.
8. Add some sparkle to your vases. This gorgeous glitter dipped jar can be created in less than 2 hours, and with only four easy to find products. Yus. Check out the easy to follow tutorial over at Lilyshop.
9. Fill em with filling. This idea looks not only adorable but delicious, and while it is probably not realistic to pop a pie in a jar for every guest, it is a great idea for a mixed desert bar! Image found at Emmaline Bride.
10. Keep it green. Let your guests leave with a little something green as a very cool reminder of your day! This fantastic pic was taken by Simply Bloom Photography with floral design by Sweet Pea Flowers.
Have a fabulicious day beautiful people xox
