Decorating a Mason Jar with Burlap

Last year when my sister got married everyone decided on a country theme for the wedding. We were left racking our brains overnight for getting the perfect décor at an affordable price when I was struck by a brilliant idea of recycling my trash of used mason jars. I had learned about burlap mason jars in Get Inspired Everyday! and was raring to go. With a little motivation my team of siblings joined in and we churned out a laudable collection of burlap mason jars.
