There’s just something about these versatile little jars that I love! They’re used to store all kinds of sundries and knick knacks, and some popular uses for the jars right now are as hanging lanterns and soap dispensers! What I love is how they can be used for weddings! What I REALLY love is when the jars are used in creative and imaginative ways!
Mason jars are classic and yet versatile chameleons. Sure they’re inexpensive and easily accessible, but these little gems have come a long way from their humble canning roots and are equally comfortable in elegant, rustic weddings as they are in casual, backyard affairs. From holding flowers, candles or beverages, to housing edible wedding favors, the uses for mason jars are innumerable!
Mason jars for beverages:
A little sweet, salty and savory…perfect for welcoming your wedding guests to a destination wedding in the Rockies!
At a wedding last year we made an ice-cream sundae bar using mason jars. We put ice-cream in the short, wide-mouthed mason jars and had various toppings such as chocolate and nuts guests could put on their sundaes! Well I forgot to take photos, but when I saw this photo it reminded me of them!
Mason Jar Wedding Uses:
More Mason Jar Uses for a little DIY fun. Here we “faked” blue bell mason jars by painting with glass paint. I love the way they turned out:
Don’t forget, you can repurpose jars for your wedding or repurpose them after your weddings! Well, I think I may have to pull out the glue gun and try a little mason jar DIY myself! If I come up with anything great I will make sure I post it here!
