Mason jar centerpieces are great anytime but especially for weddings. And when you can use your Cricut they are oh so easy to make! I was inspired to create some mason jar centerpieces with flowers after seeing this idea from 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?
This one was first published on June 11, 2013 but I revised it with some further information and wanted to post again because it turned out so great!
Supplies needed to make these DIY mason jar centerpieces:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore, however, a portion of your purchase will go to this site.
- One small jar and one large jar (NOTE: 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. Be sure to click here to see tips and tricks on removing labels from jars.)
- Glass paint in the color of your choice
- Cricut machine (click here to see which one I like best)
- Black card stock
- Vinyl (in any color)
- Cricut cut file (click here to access for a similar look to the project below)
- Rubbing alcohol
- Craft knife
Making These Rustic Mason Jar Centerpieces:
On the larger of the two jars, clean your glass well with rubbing alcohol and allow to dry. Then 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 apply glass paint on the entire jar. I also used this same color on the outside of the inner jar. My jars each received two coats of paint. Be sure to allow to dry between coats and follow all package instructions.
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. Secure into place with a bit of tape at the feet. 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 mason jar centerpieces. I love how it is like looking into a window at a couple in love.
