Mason Jars. Could they be any cuter? I love that there are so many uses for them…and I happen to have a collection of them that I’ve had for over the years. They have taken on a whole new life as wedding favors and DIY projects and I thought that I would share some of my favorites from this last summer with you!
1. Home made jam favors: if you have a handy group of friends, take a few days, get some yummy local berries and make some home made jam or jelly. Use twine or ribbon to attach a cute tag with your wedding date and name on and bam! You have a really cute favor for guests to take home. We had local home made strawberrie jam from a wedding in snohomish this summer and it was delightful!
2. Candy holder: put a cute piece if fabric that matches your wedding colors on each place setting with a tag that says thank you….then put a sign at your candy buffet bar that says fill your jar and let your guests take a cute jar home with some yummy treats!3. Scones! This is a fun one. Cute jars with a ribbon around the ring lid and fun circle sticker with your wedding date and names on the top. Then fill with scones, jam and then a dollop of frosting . The cutest part was the little wooden spoon stuck to the lid with a sticky dot. These were such a a hit, guests were eating these before the wedding was even over!
4. Candle votives:
these mason jars with green mumms glued to the top were so stinking cute. The button mumms ad a pop of color to the flower center pieces and guests took them home after the wedding.
5. Drinking glasses…a fun, casual drinking glass option. Gotta pick up the cute straws!
6. Lanterns- there are a few options with these, real candle votives, flameless candles, or amazing Edison bulbs! Super easy, just use wire to or twine to hang with! So cute, and you can use these after the wedding!
