How to Make Burlap Mason Jars
Burlap mason jars are the epitome of charm in interior décor. Their rustic appeal can transform the ambiance of any celebration in a unique style. Though the skills required are minimal, the attractive piece is undoubtedly a feather in your cap.
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.
- Mason jar
- Burlap in any color of choice (or just the plain raw version)
- Jute twine
- Measuring tape
- Cut out a 14” X 4” strip of burlap that can completely cover the jar excepting its bottom and top parts.
- Wrap the strip around the mason jar allowing it to overlap neatly at the back.
- Cut a 32” length of jute twine and use it to secure the burlap in place making a bow in front.
- Trim the excess tag ends.
Make it into a beautiful vase by filling it up with a bouquet of flowers. Sunflowers or roses look elegant in it.
Creative Ideas for Mason Jars with Burlap
Burlap and lace luminaries are the perfect ingredients for a romantic centerpiece. You can place lights or candles inside the quaint jars. Black lace also looks good on the plain burlap. If you don’t like lace, the rocking combination of gingham and burlap is worth giving a try.
The satin ribbon bow glued to the burlap cover of the lid effortlessly adds a country chic factor to this Christmas luminary. It looks great as a fall decoration too.
If you are using it as a pencil holder, you may like to personalize a bit.
Adorning the rustic jars with baby’s breath would be a great DIY wedding idea. Burlap and blue mason jars make an attractive mix. Try out the burlap mason jar sleeves for a baby shower and you are all set to be showered with compliments.
