Add rustic charm to any wedding with our easy DIY mason jar wedding decorations.
Mason jars aren’t just for canning. Use the classic mason jars to create unique wedding decorations. We have a few great ideas to get you started.
Mason Jar Wedding Favors
If you’re planning on a sit-down meal for your wedding, you’ll need place cards. Instead of using regular cards, try using mason jars. The mason jars can double as drink cups for your guests. You can use actual canning jars or mason jar mugs, which come with a handle. To help prevent messy spills, provide your guests with mason jar lids and straws. The lids fit on regular and wide mouth jars.
If you want to get really crafty, you can use mason jar chalkboard paint. Paint it on and add the guests’ names with chalk once it dries. Not only will the mason jars look great at any rustic wedding, but your guests can take them home as mason jar wedding favors.
If you want your guests to take home a tasty treat in a mason jar, try our peach butter recipe. The delicious peach butter can be labeled with the day of your wedding and your names.
Mason Jar Centerpieces
You can make simple but elegant centerpieces for the big day with mason jars. Whether you want to make your centerpieces shine with glitter, or glow like sea glass, you can make it happen with mason jars. Wedding decorations have never been so easy to make.
Glitter Mason Jars
There are so many ways to use glitter to beautify your mason jar centerpieces. You can dip the bottom half of the jars in glitter and glue, or cover the entire jar. If you don’t want to deal with the messy flakes of glitter, try using glitter spray paint. Choose from a variety of colors to match your wedding decor.
Sea Glass Mason Jars
If you’re looking for a fun way to incorporate color into your wedding centerpieces, try making sea glass mason jars.
What you’ll need:
Mix 1 tablespoon glue, 1 teaspoon water and the desired amount of food coloring together. Play around with the amount of food coloring to figure out which colors you want. Apply one light coat of the mixture to the outside of the mason jars, using the foam paint brush. It will look streaky at first, but be patient and let it dry. When the glue has dried, you’ll be left with a sea glass look. You can embellish the center pieces with burlap or twine if you wish. Add the flowers of your choice to the centerpieces for a finishing touch.
