DIY: mason jar vases





Just like my last DIY project, this one is also super simple.  And the result is amazing! I'm really happy with how they turned out and it kind of makes this small space feel a tad dressed up and whimsical. 
{please excuse the blurry pictures- my camera wasn't working!}


Tools:

- hot glue gun
- twine
- lace ribbon
- mason jars
- tea light candles

Just start on the part of the jar that you want to be the back and hot glue the end of the twine or ribbon down.  Wrap it around the jar and hot glue whenever you feel necessary to keep the twine/ ribbon in place. {I tried to only glue on the back of the jar.}  At the end, be sure to hot glue in place and cut off the excess.  Stick a tea light in the jar and there you have it!


Enjoy! :)
