You KNOW I love a good Mason jar craft.  I’ve even done a round-up of Mason Jar Crafts in the past. Most recently, I glittered some for to look like candy corn for Halloween and Fall. This time, I wanted to come up with something quick and easy.  Specifically, I wanted to make this Metallic Mason Jar Centerpiece because it was a great décor piece to transition from Christmas to New Years. As an added bonus, it only take about 15 minutes to make!

Here’s what I used, but you can make any variation to fit your décor.

Materials:

  • Mason jars or Recycled sauce jars
  • Metallic spray paint
  • Raffia and twine
  • Tea lights
  • Silver serving platter
  • Gold and silver ornaments
  • Tea light holders

My favorite jars to save are the Classico sauce jars (notice I don’t have any recipes on this blog… yes, I use sauce in a jar a lot of the time!) They come in a couple sizes and they are pretty without the label. Also, the label comes off SUPER easily. All you need is a little hot soapy water and the abrasive side of a sponge and you are good to go!

I sprayed the jars upside down in a well-ventilated area. I only needed one coat for these.

The jars look plain but I wanted to add a little raffia and twine to the top.

I found the platter and ornaments at the 99 cent store… SCORE! I thought it turned out quite nice for a 15 minute craft project!
