Spring has arrived and with that I got inspired to freshen up my outdoors a little. Mason Jars . . who knew they could be used for so many different things?!? Mason Jars gave me the little bit of country look I wanted. . going for a little touch of Calamity Jane. (see the movie if you don’t know what I am talking about) I used the jars as vases and as candle holders. Here is all you need:
Various Sizes of Mason Jars- 12 pack $10
Rope- Home Depot $3
Flowers- fresh picked: free! Or $2 for silk
Filler- Chick peas, rock, sand, Raw Sugar/ Salt, Lavender, and/or Grain. I enjoy roaming through my local grocery bulk section and finding anything with great texture or color.
If you are going to have an outdoor party I thought the mason jars as candles would look great to welcome the guests! Get creative! I love that just by changing the filler you can make it earthy, organic, bright, or simple! Wrap it with rope, twine, or ribbon!
