Want to add a pretty vase to every room – as a dining table centrepiece, displayed on your bedside table and also one for the console table in the hallway? Pick any 3 mason jars of varying heights and sizes and get started! Wash and dry jars and then paint them in different colours, whatever suits your fancy. Once they dry, sand the jars, removing as much paint as desired for a rustic effect!

Want a hanging vase? It’s really easy! Use a metal wire ring to circle the mouth of the jar and make tight loops on two sides, which will support the hanging twine. Add water, flowers and then hang the vase in your living room or beside a balcony seating arrangement.

5.Mason Jar Hanging Garden
Now one hanging mason jar is beautiful, but a bunch of them to create a garden is even better! You will need to use your handyman skills for this idea that uses a plank of wood, hose clamps and screws to fix jars on a wooden plank that fits into any wall. Determine where the centre of the hose clamp is and where you will be attaching it to the board. Carefully drill a hole wide enough for the screw to fit through the hose clamp. Carefully screw the hose clamp to the board and then ease it closed around the jars
6.Colourful Wrapped Mason Jar Vases
This idea relies on some embroidered thread in bright colours, jute twine, a tube of glue and some clear glass jars. Dab some craft glue at the starting point and begin wrapping the thread around the jars, glueing ever so often. Remember to alternate between the thread and the twine, creating a different look for each jar.
7.Simplistic Touch Vases
Clear mason jars make beautiful vases all by themselves. For this trick, you need to tie up jute twine around the mouth of jars to give them a rustic look and hang some glass beads at the end for decoration. To add some colour, put black and white pebbles inside the jars, fill up with water, and then add the flowers. And you’re done!
