It’s all about the small details! It’s amazing to me how mason jar crafts can make for such beautiful mason jar centerpieces, candle holders, lanterns, and even old fashioned drink jars – perfect for decorating your wedding, AND, on a budget, might I add.
Mason jar centerpieces make for really fun and easy diy projects that just requires a little bit of creativity with old and new items. They go great with the new vintage and rustic wedding themes that seem to be trending.
Using them as vases is the most obvious choice, but you can really change the look depending on what you use to decorate and fill the jar. I really like the simple use of burlap, giving them a vintage rustic feel. They also pair nicely with dried flowers as well as fresh.
The right lighting at a wedding reception can really bring out that “wow” factor, and mason jars work perfectly as candle holders and lanterns. If you like the lantern idea, I’ve posted an instructional video on how to make your own mason jar lanterns at the bottom of this post. If you choose to use them as candle holders, you can really play up the season by using a filler that pairs well, such as sand for a summer or beach wedding, epsom salt to resemble snow for a winter wedding, or acorns for a fall wedding.
Consider incorporating mason jars into your theme from the very beginning. I’ve found the cutest mason jar themed wedding invitation from Wedding Paper Divas. It has a mason jar sketch filled with vintage paper straws on white textured paper - available in three color options.
