Simple and colorful mason jar centerpieces for your home

A home feels empty without a few colorful decorations. Whether it’s a painting, a few colorful pillows or something as simple as a flower vase, something needs to be added in order to make a room feel more inviting and beautiful. Today we’re going to focus on something very simple. We’re going to show you to make lovely centerpieces using mason jars.

The project is very simple. All you need is a mason jar and spray paint. As you probably guessed, you first need to spray-paint the mason jar. In the example the color chosen is white but if you prefer something else then you should go for it. After that, you can leave the piece as such and simply add some colorful flowers or you can also add some decorations. For example, you could use a rough piece of burlap and secure it with a few rounds of yarn in your favorite color. For this part you don’t need glue and if, at one point, you get tire of this decoration, you can remove it or replace it.

Spruce up your paper globe lantern with cheerful bunting

Paper globe lanterns are very beautiful. They have this contrasting look that makes them very interesting. On one hand they have a spherical shape and that’s not exactly very slender but, on the other hand, they are so delicate and are made from fragile materials. This dichotomy makes them very alluring. But this doesn’t mean it’s impossible to make a paper lantern look even better.

If you have a plain white paper globe lantern and you find it a little too simple and too monotonous, you can always spruce it up with a few decorations. For example, you can use some cheerful bunting to give it a more attractive and fun look. This is something that you can do by yourself. All you need are some tiny scraps of fabric and bias tape. Just cut the fabric into small triangles and sew them into bias tape which you can either purchase from a store or make it yourself.
