“Fun Holiday Decorating Idea”

I went to a little soiree not too long ago to get a little better acquainted with Austin. At the end of the evening a girl in charge was trying to get everyone to take home the table centerpieces. I didn’t think much of it until I looked a little closer and saw what they were using for the vases.

“I must have these!” I exclaimed across the room with a silver jar raised in each hand.

The room hushed and everyone looked at me from above their champagne.

Then I proceeded to take my three favorites while they went back to chattering.

I think these are the coolest because they are made from one of my favorite things ever created for the home kitchen: the mason jar.

To recreate these all you need is:

1. A glass mason jar of any brand and any size.

2. Silver spray paint in metallic or gloss or matte, depending on your mood. Or you could be wild and go for gold.

3. Some newspaper to lay down under the jars so your whole world doesn’t become silver and gold.

Once they’re nice and dry you can put some marbles or smooth pebbles in the bottom to help ground the flowers.

Just think of all of the inexpensive possibilities here with colors and shapes and sizes and flower varieties. It’s a fun way to decorate for all of the upcoming holidays. This is my new favorite discovery. Inexpensive and instantly festive.

Give it a try sometime guys and gals!

  1. Brilliant! I think these would be cute for Christmas gifts too, filled with candy, oh yeah! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I LOVE this Georgia! I’ve seen them done in some colors…..but I’m really digging the silver, especially for the holidays!!

  3. Perfect timing. We’ve been spray painting mini pumpkins in metallics for fall decor and I needed something taller for the table. Thanks!

  4. What a fantastic idea for many seasonal celebrations! What about pastels in the spring? Or red, white and blue for the 4th? Cool.

  5. What a great idea, Georgia!

  6. Great idea Georgia! Love this! They would look cool for Halloween, too. I could see them filled with orange flowers.

    Thanks for sharing!

  14. What a wonderful idea! I love them!!!

  15. I love this idea! I think I’ll do gold and silver for my holiday decorations.

  16. So cute! I saw the “redneck wine glass.” A mason jar mounted to a glass candle stick with glass glue, not nearly as chic, but will hold plenty of wine.

  17. I like the idea of doing this will lots of different sized jars – genius

  18. I am on the edge of my seat going crazy for these jars. Who would have thought that something so simple would be so fabulous. I have never see this done but I must have every color, matte, shiny, golden and silver! Just pinned, stumbled & FB’ed.

  24. Darling! Great idea!

    You could also do that with old jam jars or what ever kind of bottle u have . very pretty. I would spray them black and go over it hit and miss with gold.

  26. This is a great idea! I have been thinking about decorating tables for a banquet with mason jars, thanks for giving me one more idea.

      Ooh, they would be perfect for a banquet!! Go you.

      • Aloha Georgia, Will you please reveal to me exactly which paint you used? Is this a matte finish? I tried this today with a metallic pink by Krylon, which is pretty nice, but yours above, are definitely a cut above! Thanks!
