Mason Jar Ribbon and Lace Centerpiece


Mason Jar Ribbon and Lace Centerpiece

My mom got married last weekend and I was recruited to make the centerpieces. I spent a lot of time searching through Pinterest for some inspiration. The end product became my own creation made out of what I had on hand.

The two posts that inspired me are this pin from Party Ideas By A Pro. I showed you the link to the pin because the pic gets lost in the post. It’s a mason jar centerpiece with lemon slices. This led to the idea of using mason jars for the centerpieces since my mom did not want to buy a bunch of glass containers she would never use again.

The other inspiration came from this post from Madigan Made. She covered golf balls in various fabrics and filled a glass jar with them.

I searched my stash and found some lace and ribbon that made a great combo.

I originally wanted to tape the lace on so it could be removed easily later but it didn’t stay so I ended up using hot glue. I made a couple of small dabs on the back of the lace and secured it to the jar.

I put one row of lace around the bottom and then flipped the lace upside down to make a second row on the top. The lace fit together really nicely because of its shape.

Then I took the ribbon and tied it around the top with a double knot. I made a simple bow and cut the ends to make them look prettier. This is a super easy trick. Fold the ribbon in half and then cut on the diagonal. This makes the end look fancier and helps the ribbon from fraying

Here is the finished product waiting for flowers.

We put a few golf balls in the bottom to hold the flowers up. It was a nice touch since my mom and her new husband love to golf and they got married on a golf course. We filled the jars with some beautiful Gerber daisies.
