I’m so excited to share this months blog hop theme (where 10 of my blogger pals get together and create a different project around a common theme). This months theme is my favorite–MASON JARS! Head on over to their blogs to check out their awesome projects, and be sure to check out my simple and fun project further down in this post. Last month’s hop theme was citrus, so many cute ideas! Pin this collage below, and make sure you come back on the 10th each month! And now, for some mason jar love:

I love mason jars. And I am in awe of all the unique creations people come up with using them.
And while I do consider myself “creative”, I’m far from being the ultimate DIYer.
So my idea of a mason jar project is quick, simple, whimsical, and able to be whipped up with stuff you have around the house.
If you’re anything like me, then you think it is sometimes nice to search for project ideas that aren’t going to take up your entire weekend, but still give you a beautiful finished product. The decorated mason jars I’m sharing today are nothing new–but they are my go-to project anytime I want to switch out my vases for the season, or if I need some quick centerpieces for a dinner or party. They even make fantastic gifts (think teachers or neighbors or hostess gifts)–just ad a cute little ribbon and gift tag.
I have found the best priced mason jars online at Kmart, or if you’re in a rush get them at the grocery store (not at a craft supply store). For these particular vases, I took the middle part out of the lids and just used the rims. I grabbed some spray paint I already had in my garage and sprayed both the lids and the jars, then left them outside to dry.
I love these, because I love the mix and match lids. After they were dry, I just picked some flowers from my yard and I was done.
This next simple mason jar project can be completed in less than 5 minutes.
Simply wrap the jar with jute and tie off at the end.
Then I found some old jewelry and charms, used some pliers to attach them together with jump rings, then attached the final charm to the jute. It gives the vase a sort of Victorian look. Super easy gift idea.
I would love for you to put a link to your favorite mason jar crafts in the comments section.
