Silhouette Mason Jar Wedding Vase Centerpiece

It is June which means it is wedding season.  I was inspired to create this fun silhouette mason jar wedding vase centerpiece that you will love.  This idea started with a wreath form centerpiece made by my friend Cyn over at Creative Cynchronicity.  I loved the kissing couple silhouette and could not stop until I made my own wedding craft with a couple silhouette.  Of course my version had to involve jars but y’all knew that right?

You will need one small jar and one large jar.  The small jar should fit inside the large one.  I am actually using a tall jelly mason jar for the inside and an old pickle jar for the outside.  A wide mouth mason jar that is plain on the outside would work as well.  Otherwise just eat lots of pickles before your wedding.

I used my Silhouette machine to cut the kissing couple silhouettes from black card stock.  You could also use a craft knife and some patience.  I found the free use images on the internet.  I then used some vinyl cut into the shape of a heart as my paint mask.  Clean your glass well with alcohol, apply your heart, and burnish the edges well to avoid paint leaking under your masking.  I added a heart on both the front and the back so that the vase is the same from both sides.

Then use Americana Gloss Enamels in Indian Turquoise on the entire jar.  I also used this same color on the outside of the inner jar.  My paints were provided by Decoart but you can find these same paints at Michaels stores near you or you can Shop Michaels Online to find the paints in a variety of colors.  My jars each received two coats of paint.

Allow your jars to dry completely before removing the mask.  I found it best to cut around the heart mask with a craft knife before removing.  Now it is time to add your silhouettes and assemble your vase.  My silhouette was a little tall for my opening so I just folded the feet.  This is also what I used to tape the silhouette in place inside the jar.

Add a silhouette in both the front and the back heart, then drop in your inner jar, and you have a completed wedding vase centerpiece.

All that is left is to add flowers to the top and enjoy your creation.  I love how it is like looking into a window at a couple in love.
