DIY wedding decor is a great way to save on wedding costs and also personalize your decor as you give the big day a lovely personal touch. These chalkboard mason jar flower vase centerpieces add a beautiful and unique element to any wedding.
I love wedding crafts so much that some blogger friends and I even created a wedding craft week to highlight unique and beautiful craft ideas you can make and use on such a special day.
The craft I’m sharing today is a mason jar flower vase that uses chalkboard paint and cut vinyl to add a cute phrase. The result is a classic and elegant-looking black and white design that is perfect for even the most formal weddings.
If you’ve been following this site for a while, you probably know that I’ve made other wedding-themed mason jar vases and centerpieces in the past. Check out my Felt Wedding Mason Jars, Mason Jar Centerpieces For Weddings, and DIY Metal-Wrapped Jar Candle Holders for more inspiration!
How To Make A Chalkboard Mason Jar Flower Vase
This chalkboard mason jar vase is so easy and perfect for weddings. Trust me when I say you can make this fun vase in minutes.
Here is everything you will need to have on hand for making these mason jar vases. I have even included a few links to help you find what you need faster.
- Chalkboard quart mason jars (yes, they come already with chalkboard on them!) – you can also try a pint-size if you want something smaller
- White vinyl
- Transfer tape (optional)
- Electronic cutting machine (try a Silhouette or a Cricut!)
You can see all of the details on how to make this chalkboard mason jar vase in the video below!
If you missed any of the steps from the video (or just prefer written directions), just follow these instructions:
Cut the white vinyl with your electronic craft cutter into the words of your choice. A monogram would also be a fun design idea!
Remove the excess vinyl surrounding the words as well as the insides of the letters (like the “O”).
Tip: Using a hook makes this super easy.
You can use transfer tape (as shown in the video) to apply vinyl to the jar. The transfer tape is optional but makes the process a bit easier.
That is it! Enjoy your chalkboard mason jar vase and show it off at your wedding festivities!
Here are a couple of questions that I see readers ask about making this mason jar flower vase. Please check to see if I’ve already answered it below if you have a question. Don’t see it? Leave it for me in the comments!
Can I write on a chalkboard vase instead of cutting vinyl?
Yes, you can definitely just write on the vase with chalk instead. I found that my handwriting was so horrible that it looked like a kindergartner was decorating the jar. If you are in the same boat as me, give this technique a try! It will give you professional results in minutes!
On the other hand, if you have lovely handwriting or think you’ll want to change out the phrases on the vases (maybe to use them for other occasions), just write on them.
Could I paint mason jars with chalkboard paint myself?
Of course! I’m always looking for ways to make crafting easier and less time-consuming, so that’s why I used these already-painted jars. However, if you love to fully DIY projects, just get some mason jars in the size of your choice and paint them with chalkboard paint.
I recommend using spray paint for this project to get a nice, even finish without any paintbrush lines.
