Mason jars or ordinary jars can be used for a thousand things: lanterns, vases, candle holders, favors and so on. Today I want to share some jar DIYs for Thanksgiving that are easy to do and won’t cost a lot of time or money.
The first is a Thanksgiving or Fall centerpiece with glasses, vases, and pumpkins. Stencil white burlap and attach it to the vases and glasses, using cord. Place on a wooden disc, add nuts and pumpkins and voila! You can paint the jars somehow if you want.
Use maple leaf stencils to transform ordinary glasses into amazing fall candle lanterns. Make them copper color using a sheet stencil and fill them with wooden slices or nuts, add candles.
Harvest terrariums? Yes, please! For this craft, you will need wide neck quart jars and artificial fall greenery: orange berries, purple berries, purple flower stalk, Spanish moss. Create your own terrariums mixing, closing and tagging content to your liking. Such glasses can be a cool centerpiece or just a decoration.
These lanterns are special, here you have two glasses in one. The larger glass is filled with various pine cones, berries, nuts and leaves and the upper glass contains a candle. Look so original!
Makes this turkey mason jar for your kids. Fill them with candy and then attach googly eyes, nose and feathers and write your wishes or thanks on feathers. Let your kids have fun!
To make this centerpiece, you need to paint mason jars and then torture them. Decorate them as you like and put wheat or flowers in them, put them in a box and put them in the center of your table.
This centerpiece is like the previous one, but with FALL letters. You can also write THANK YOU or something else, it’s up to you.
Create simple lanterns that wrap mason jars with burlap and secure leaves with string or twine. You can also dye or stamp burlap if you’d like.
These bold orange lanterns are made from mason jars with a pumpkin stencil and light color. Fill the lantern with some fall material and add candles.
This craft is for kids: take mason jars and turn them into turkeys. The jar itself is to be painted brown, and the tail will be made of colored lids. The face consists of a wooden disc and googly eyes. Invite your kids to have fun before Thanksgiving or this day, they’ll enjoy it!
Pumpkins from mason jars? So unusual! Paint them orange, paint the lids brown, add sheets of paper and small details to the lids. Fill them with candy and delight your kids!
Take real leaves and attach them to the glasses with Mod Podge so you can have amazing fall-inspired lanterns to decorate your Thanksgiving table with.
These glasses are cool and easy decorations. Just fill them with nuts, leaves, corn, acorns and other stuff, then put votive pictures on top of them. It’s a real last minute craft and looks cool everywhere.
Do you have a seaside or beach house, or do you just live by the sea? Bring that ocean and beach aesthetic with you and feel at home in your rooms too! A porch is one of the first rooms your visitors see, and you can have some relaxing time there too, which means this is the first room for renovations and today we're going to be doing it beach style.
Styles and colors
Going to the beach or coast doesn't mean you don't have to choose a style that you will have. Make your outdoor and indoor spaces coherent with the same style: modern, contemporary, vintage farmhouse, shabby chic or whatever you already use. As for the colors, you can rock different shades of blue, neutral, green, white and sandy hues, or even go bright and colorful with turquoise, orange and coral.
Set up the furniture your style - some chairs, a hanging day bed or sofa, maybe hanging rattan chairs and benches - it all depends on your space. Think of bright and fun textiles if you want to decorate brightly colored and, on the contrary, neutral and pastel colored textiles for an airy feeling. If you enjoy surfing, you can accentuate the porch with an old surfboard or a colorful one that you like. Pot greens and blossoms enliven the room perfectly and candle lanterns create a cozy atmosphere at night. Get inspired!
