Here is a really simple 5 minute project to be festive for Memorial Day and the 4th of July. These vases are easy to make and no commitment- unlike spray painting a mason jar.
You simply tie some burlap and a little festive ribbon and you are done! Plus I used one bunch of hydrangeas for $5 from Trader Joes and got 3 Mason Jars from the bunch. Talk about inexpensive!
These literally take minutes to put together and you can use whatever size jar you prefer. The smaller size jars I used are perfect for smaller arrangements of flowers, votive candles, to hold utensils, sparklers or glow sticks for the kiddos.
I simply cut a piece of burlap to fit around the jar. I used glue dots to secure the ends to the jar in the back. You can hot glue as well or just a piece of clear tape should hold it in place.
Then I took the ribbon and just tied it to fit. I didn’t even secure the ribbon and it stays in place. I used (2) different styles of ribbon that I picked up on clearance at Joann’s for $.89 each.
You can tie a little bow in front or just fit around the jar and tape the ends to the back- like a band. These look good either way.
Here is how these look without a tied knot in the front and just the band of ribbon:
And here is how they look with candles inside-
So if you need a little something for 4th of July give these a shot!
