Thanksgiving time is here again! That means delicious food and visiting with loved ones, which in turn means lots of time spent gathered around the dining table. Give your holiday table a touch of elegance by displaying your centerpiece in this simple, rustic, Mason jar vase. All you need for this easy DIY project are corn husks, jute twine, vintage Mason jars, and some bright blooms. Making a Mason jar vase is simple. Adding personality is all up to what you can harvest!
Whether you are setting the table for Thanksgiving or another fall feast, the garden provides brightly-colored treasures for this centerpiece. I used dahlias, but the possibilities are endless. Go out in the garden and get creative with the flowers you choose! Collect some dried corn husks and jute twine to wrap a Mason jar, then fill with dahlias or flowers of your choice and place beside ornamental gourds for a festive fall display.
To wrap the Mason jar, use some masking tape to secure the first few husks. After that, tuck the end of the top layer of husks into the folds of the first layers until the masking tape isn’t visible. Secure with some jute twine and it’s ready for the table in just five minutes! Didn’t I tell you it would be simple?
