HUNTED : { Wedding Decor – Mason Jars }

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Craftsfolk are a clever lot. The humble mason jar. By all accounts just a wide-rimmed screw-top glass jar. Yet somehow it has exploded to become the foundation of an endless stream of creative ideas.

I probably don’t have enough features relevant to the DIY wedding at this time, so to begin re-tipping the balance (and in this time of austerity it doesn’t hurt to think of ways to save) here is an ongoing inspiration hunt for “ways to use Mason Jars.” At time of writing I believe this is a bottomless pit . . .

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Or non-produce but equally tasty favours like these vibrant gobstoppers … (via Want That Wedding)

Mason Jars : you have been hunted

I am by no means suggesting this is the limit of your versatility, merely that my typing fingers are about to drop off.

Have any of these ideas inspired you?

Or do you think mason jars are too cliche these days?
