Variations

  • Mason jar candle holder. Instead of greenery, put a tea light candle in each jar.
  • Floating candles and water. Fill the mason jars with water and add floating candles.
  • Home decor. Paint different colors and use these year round to match your home decor. I like to use chalk paint because it is so forgiving. If you would like something to enjoy year round, paint it neutral colors.
  • Mason Jar Wedding Centerpiece. Use these for table decorations at a rustic wedding. This will look so pretty and cost very little to make. Try it for a frugal centerpiece.
  • Vase for flowers. Put flowers inside. This would be perfect to use all year round to hold flowers.

These jars are inexpensive to buy if you do not have any at home. However, most people have several of these in the cabinet. You likely have everything you already need to make this fun craft.

Supplies needed

How to make Mason Jar Christmas Centerpiece:

Mason jar painted white.

1. Paint the mason jars with paint. I used 1 coat because I wanted the brush strokes to show and the jars to look rustic. Let dry completely. If you do not want to see the brush strokes and prefer a different look, apply another coat after it dries.

2. Once dry, lightly sand them. This allows the raised edges to show some detail. You can also create some scuffs on the side of the jars giving the pieces more of a rustic feel.

3. Prepare the ribbon so that it is even. Cut 2 pieces of green and 1 piece of red ribbon by wrapping it around the jar and trimming so you have about a 1/2″ overlap.

4. Wrap the ribbon around the jar. Next, wrap one piece of ribbon around the jar and secure it with hot glue. I prefer to use hot glue because it is easy and secure.

5. Trim the cinnamon sticks. If necessary, trim cinnamon sticks with diagonal cutters. However, they might not need to be trimmed. Just take a look and see once you get the cinnamon sticks out.

6. Add the embellishments. Attach the stick to the front of the jars with a tiny dab of hot glue. Do not use too much glue. Only a small amount is needed.

7. Wrap raffia around the jar. Secure in a double knot on top of the cinnamon sticks. Trim ends. Repeat for the additional 2 jars until you have completed all of the jars.
