Country charming … love love the look of mason jars as wedding decor! They’re so versatile- and great for adding sweet and budget-friendly DIY touches like these wedding centerpieces.

Spray paint … it’s our friend! Its inherent ability to transform and renew has helped me on many occasions.  Here are  a few ideas to show off how transforming using spray paint on mason jars can be…

Painted white and used as hanging luminaries, these mason jars have an ethereal glow to them – that is just so pretty.

    Mason jars are so popular right now. I love when they are spray painted with unique colors. It’s cute when they’re plain… but the wow factor is definitely in the color. Love it!

    Julie – I knew you’d like this one! Kristen, How will you use them as favors? Monogrammed? Filled with candy? As personalized drink glasses??! So many options!

    I am using these as center pieces for my bridal showers and putting wild flowers from the farmers market in them. I got them from Hobby Lobby for 50% off, so like a buck each for the larger ones. I also bought some small “bell” (I think) jam jars and will be making jam as some prizes. We are giving everyone a recipe box filled with a few family recipes and I mailed out a blank recipe card with my invitations. When people come to the shower they will turn them in and as I open gifts we will pull recipe cards and they will win the home made jam. It goes with the mason jar and home made recipe theme. :)

    I love this! Did you paint the interior or exterior of the jars? I’d love to try it out!

  • christine

    What type of white paint was used to give the white jars the luminary effect so it glows?

    Hi Christine- the jars are actually made of porcelain and there’s a candle in them too! Here’s the link to find out more details-

    Did you drill holes in the bottom of the ones with flowers planted in them? If not, how did it work out?

     I do not believe there are holes drilled in these. You just have to be careful of over-watering.
