Looking for a quick and inexpensive centerpiece idea? These charming mason jar centerpieces are perfect for any occasion, from a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner to your wedding reception. You only need a few inexpensive pieces to make a charming look come together in no time!
- Mason jars of various heights
- Washi tape or other decorative tape (a great craft staple to stock up on!)
- Tea light candles
- Adhesive gift tags from Wedding Paper Divas
You really can tailor this craft to suit your own style, so feel free to experiment with colors and artistic elements.
Step One: Decorate the Mason Jars
Attach the washi tape in a decorative way, whether you use it to create vertical stripes, horizontal rows or a crisscross pattern. We opted for a simple and modern design based on the Petite Leaf gift tag stickers we selected.
Step Two: Attach Adhesive Gift Tags
We attached the gift tag sticker only to the larger, more dominant jar in our arrangement.
Step Three: Add Water and Candle
Fill the jars with varying amounts of water. We filled the larger jar halfway and put slightly less water in the smaller version.
Next, add the tea light candles and light them using long matches to avoid any unfortunate mishaps.
Step Four: Arrange and Enjoy Your New Centerpieces!
We thought they looked particularly charming paired with fruit, but you could also add a few flowers, arrange them on a tray… the possibilities are endless!
