Country Mason Jar Center Pieces

I had to share this fun little endeavor I’m working on! I’m honored to be helping a friend with the decor for her upcoming country-themed wedding this Fall. I have been chipping away at favors, and she recently asked me about doing some center pieces. With dark purple as her main color, she asked for something using “mason jars and burlap” and I immediately visualized these!

So easy, not to mention economical!!! Strips of burlap (cut from a burlap bag), hot-glued onto the mason jar. Then on top, a purple ribbon (Michaels). Finished off with some raffia and/or jute twine. You can find mason jars at craft stores, thrift stores, Walmart, or even the Dollar Tree!

She will put 3 gebera daisies in one and a candle in the other! It will look so pretty flickering against the burlap. πŸ™‚ I can think of a billion ways to personalize or customize these. The possibilities are endless.

  • Add a wooden tag or skeleton key
  • Glue on a faux daisy or flower on the front
  • Change up the ribbon color
  • Use homespun fabric or lace instead of burlap
  • Use different colored twine or raffia
  • Add stamped grungy hang tags
  • Add a metal wire around the neck and hang them up
  • So many ideas! Be creative!

    I know I have been to your Etsy shop before but now I can’t find the link. :0(
    I guess I am having a low brain functioning day today.
