Flowers add instant charm to any space, especially when pared with a Mason jar. Place your floral design by a window, on a desk, or on a nightstand for an instant pop of beauty.
I used to have beautiful vases...and I loved to use them. That is until my three-year-old decided that they resembled lights (that's a whole other story) and best belonged on the floor, with lego "light bulbs" filling them instead of flowers. So one summer day, I had just picked some roses from my garden and came up with the idea of using some leftover jars that my mother-in-law had once used for canning. And viola...vase problem solved!
If you have gorgeous vases, by all means use them. But if you find yourself lacking, making your own flower jar is truly as simple as 1...2...3! Don't forget to check out how to make a bouquet and beautiful centerpieces.
I would love to see what you come up with. Be sure to share your comments and pictures below!
