Over the weekend, it felt like SPRING here in Southern California! It was gorgeous, sunny and even in the high 70s. My mom was in town and we spent part of Sunday morning at my favorite farmer’s market. The farmer’s market, the warmer weather, and the beautiful sunshine really had me thinking of Spring. I hadn’t been to the farmer’s market in months even though it’s open year round here. So I haven’t had fresh cut flowers in some time either. And since it was just a lovely day I decided to pick up a small bouquet of flowers. One thing I love about the farmer’s market is that I can get fresh cut flowers for super cheap! I means $3, CHEAP! I love that!
When I got home I put them in a mason jar and called it good. But it was looking a little plain so I decided to whip up a little DIY Embellished Mason Jar Vase.
It’s kind of funny the way this mason jar came together. Sort of embarrassing, really. All of these items were laying on my dining room table because I still had craft supplies out from some old projects, and the key was in the Michaels bag that I had sitting on my table from a shopping trip the day before. My dining table is full of craft stuff and a complete mess.
So, here’s another project where I had all the supplies on hand. I grabbed a mason jar, but any jar that you may have lying around. I wrapped it with a strip of burlap I had leftover from another project, then wrapped some jute on top of the burlap. The key is a fake skeleton key I picked up in the $1 bin of Michaels. They had tons of different looking ones. Really fun! To attach it onto the jar, I wrapped the jute around two or three times then strung on the key and continued wrapping. That’s all that took.
I really love how easy it is to dress up a mason jar. They are really so versatile. And this embellished mason jar vase is so lovely. The jute and the skeleton key give it a vintage feel, that I love.
It’s such a simple way to dress up a vase. I love it. And it’s perfect for Spring! Now, if only that gorgeous Spring weather would return!
