Whether you’re using them at your Wedding, Bridal Shower, Bachelorette Party….or all 3 (who doesn’t love 3-in-1decor?!), you will find some great inspiration below.

1. DIY Cover

Add a touch of elegance with a handmade (or purchased through Etsy, for my fellow procrastinators) crochet mason jar cover. The decor possibilities are limitless. Hang them as lanterns, place them around the room/venue, or use vibrant colors for an eye-catching pop.

4. Wedding Aisles 

Aisle markers are a great way to easily add a touch of personality and flair to your event.

5. Vases

If your party colors/flowers are bright, use a clear or white mason jar. If your flowers are more neutral, try a mason jar with a pop of color.

6. Hanging Lanterns

This is a great way to transition from day to night. Hang them over an area to highlight it, or hang them everywhere to add atmosphere. Pretty during the day, and enchanting at night.

7. Drinkware/Keepsakes

This is both a practical way to use mason jars, and a memory maker. We love the sign used in the picture below too!

8. Utensil Holders

While practical, mason jars can be painted and embellished in many ways so this also becomes decor.
