Did You Know?

Mason jars seem to be just about everywhere now, from your grandmother's kitchen cabinets to these darling wedding centerpieces. Have you ever wondered how Mason jars got their start, though? In 1858, John Landis Mason, a tinsmith from Philadelphia invented and patented a screw-finish glass jar. This is why, no matter the brand, these screw-top glass jars are referred to overwhelmingly as "Mason" jars. He was only 26 years old at the time!

Before the invention of the Mason jar, wax sealers were widely used to secure the tin lids. Because the process of wax sealing was complicated, the use of Mason jars with screw-on lids took over the home canning industry. There have also only been a few minor tweaks to the original jar design in the last 150 years. Today, the jars are used for a variety of purposes (besides canning) including short-term food storage, decoration, and baking!

Very country look. Or as some one else said, make them with different material to change the theme. And building on that idea, why not use baby theme material and use them at a baby shower? Or a wedding shower. They don't have to be used strictly at a wedding. This is a wonderful idea.

I actually enjoyed reading about the background of the Mason jars, how great thing about them is that you can really use anything to decorate them from a piece of colorful fabric that matches or coordinates with the wedding colors, to ribbon, to stretch rhinestone banding to floral garland or even just randomly gluing little glass pebbles or sequins to your jars... You can really make it your very own! So practical too, as you can offer these as keepsakes to the bridal party or family members after the reception!

These are so pretty, but no one will ever guess how easy they are to craft! My cousin used something similar at her wedding and it looked so rustic and chic.

I even think if you replace the burlap part with a different kind of fabric you could totally use this if you're not having a rustic wedding! I think this is absolutely gorgeous and super versatile because you can make it match your colors too!

This are great for a country rustic wedding! I'm going to share the idea with my friend for her wedding!

Love these "get the looks"!!
