You can make your own wedding mason jars in minutes with some cut felt and a little twine. Okay, maybe you are not planning a wedding but these jars are just too cute to resist for any occasion. So, I am actually in two blog hops today. One is for crafts made with items from the dollar store. The other is for quick 15 minute crafts using felt. This fits in with both of those! That is what I call a win-win! You can also see more great ideas at the bottom of this post so don’t miss those.
Supplies needed to make these wedding mason jars:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore, however, a portion of your purchase will go to support this site. Some items below were given to me free of charge, however, all projects and opinions are my own.
- Felt (I used the Cricut felt sheets I had on hand but really cheap dollar store felt works just as well!)
- Cricut Cutting Machine (Want to see the difference between the machines? I compared the Cricut Maker and Explore here.) I definitely recommend the Cricut Maker for cutting felt for this project. (NO CRICUT?? Read on to see my advice on still completing this project.)
- Hot glue and glue gun
- Mason jars
- Cut file (click here to access in Cricut Design Space)
One of my favorite items to get from the dollar store (or any store frankly) is mason jars. They are so versatile and can be used for a ton of craft projects. Today, I am literally just cutting some felt into shapes and wrapping it around the jars. How easy is that?
I cut my felt with the Cricut Maker just to make this project super simple. You can, however, do something similar with just scissors. The heart pattern one shown can easily be made by cutting yourself. Some of these could even be completely with a hole punch! Get creative if you don’t have a Cricut machine of your own.
If you do have a Cricut Maker, just click here to access the file. Then resize if needed and cut your felt. Now the machine does take a while to cut these strips but I count that as hands off time. You can go do something else while the Cricut does its thing!
All that is left is to wrap the felt strips around each jar and secure with a little bit of hot glue. I also added some tied twine around each one but that is completely optional. A touch of rustic is perfect, however, especially with the elegant look of these wedding mason jars.
I added flowers to my mason jars as a centerpiece but these would also be great with tea lights in them as candle holders. There are so many possibilities!
Will you be making these wedding mason jars for your big day or maybe just for your home? I love how simple and pretty they are and I know you will love them as well.
