Mason Jars Part 2 - Beachy Table Decor

Hello again! This is Part 2 of my 3 part blog on how to decorate our new PURPLE mason jars.  Last week I showed you how to turn your jar into a beautiful candle holder.  Today I will show you how to dress up your jar to use as table decor for a wedding or any other type of party.

You will need the following supplies:
- Pint size mason jar
- 1 2.5" burlap roll
- 1 spool 7/8" satin ribbon in your color of choice
- 1 bag seashells
- 1 roll 1/4" double sided tape
- E6000 glue or a hot glue gun

First take your burlap roll and wrap around your jar to measure how much you need.  It should overlap about 1/4".

Apply double sided tape to your strip of burlap.  I put one strip on the top and one on the bottom.  Remove the tape backing and place burlap on jar.  Try to line it up so the ends meet in the middle of one side of the jar.

Next, do the same to your satin ribbon.  It should only need one strip of double sided tape. Place the satin ribbon over the burlap. Make sure the ends meet at the same place as the burlap.

Finally, turn your jar so that the side where the ribbon ends overlap is in the back.  Pick out your favorite shell and use either E6000 or a hot glue gun to adhere the shell in the center of your ribbons.

Voila, you're done! This project is great because you can customize it to your own color scheme and it is very fast and easy to make.  You can place it on your table as is or use it for flowers, utensils, or anything else you can think of! Enjoy and come back next Thursday to see Mason Jars Part 3 - Doily Vase.
