DIY: mason jars.

{i love the lace/pearls/vintage look}

I am on pinterest way more than I'd like to admit, and I always feel so crafty pinning to my DIY board, yet I never actually get around to making anything. At the end of this year, I am moving to Austin, TX with my boyfriend, so we are trying to save up money and buy furniture and decorations. Buying things can get expensive, but DIY projects are usually cheaper! So I went that route tonight. Mason jars are clearly not just for canning anymore. On pinterest you see everything from mason jar wine glasses to mason jar chandeliers. The options are endless. So, thank you pinterest, for making my future apartment have an adorable decoration for a fairly cheap price. I had most of the mason jars on hand, and today hobby lobby had them for 50% off! You can always use any {washed out} jars you have on hand, you do not necessarily have to use mason jars! These are so easy to make, and they are adorable!

What You'll Need:
  • Mason/Jars in random sizes {however many you want to use}
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Lace/Doilies
  • Pearl Strands
  • Cute Yarn/Strings/etc.
  • Whatever else your heart desires!
{so pretty lit up; perfect for a mantle/centerpiece}
