Easy Mason Jar Centerpieces

Wedding centerpieces don’t have to be over the top expensive and elaborate to make a beautiful statement.  Using simple mason jars is understated yet romantic and chic for a celebration that is already filled with elaborate decor.

I particularly like the look of mason jars for a rustic or vintage inspired wedding but they are really appropriate for any style.

The following collection of mason jar centerpieces show examples in a variety of different themed weddings.  All of them are easy to put together and fairly budget friendly.  If you know someone who has a collection of vintage mason jars, you could be in luck.  Otherwise, new ones are reasonable to buy from a craft or grocery store in packs of about a dozen.

Mason jars are quickly dressed up when they are wrapped in twine, lace or a section of an old book page.  Simply fill with fresh flowers and you have a beautiful rustic chic display.

If you would like to add a bit more color to your tables, you could paint your jars to match your wedding color.  I have done this technique and would recommend painting the inside of the jar instead of the outside to give a nice glossy look to the finish.  It also makes handling the surface easier.

Here is a unique idea for displaying photos of the happy couple at each of the guest tables.  It’s also a nice way for guests to see different sides of the bride and groom especially if they don’t know one or the other very well.
