DIY Twine-Wrapped Mason Jars

I feel like I’m a little late in joining the rustic chic party but hey better late than never right? In celebration of my latest project in the works which I shared a bit with you here, I thought I’d give these twine-wrapped mason jars a try. After all I certainly love wrapping and gluing anything I can around vases. This project was so easy peasy that you too can create your own with whatever kind of jar, twine and ribbon you want to use. The supplies are few as all you need is some glue (either crazy glue or you can use a glue gun), ribbon, mason jars, flowers and of course, lots and lots of the good stuff. Also known as twine. Oh sweet sweet twine. I heart you.
The jars I found were from Hobby Lobby as was the twine. I purchased the shorter jars since I was looking to save a bit of cash if you know what I mean, but I think taller jars would have looked really cool as the layers of twine would have crawled up the sides of the jar a little bit higher. Here are a few of the steps I took to wrap the twine around the mason jars. The most important part is obviously fastening the twine to the jar when you start and finish wrapping it around. I also made sure to wrap the twine over and across the exact point where I glued the start of the twine to the glass. This sort of anchored the twine to the glass and allowed me to wrap the twine sooner than it would have taken me if I had waited for the glue to dry. Patience? What’s that?
Then you can make the twine sort of wrap around in a diagonal pattern over the first layer of twine. I did this by wrapping the twine in a figure 8 pattern over and over again until I felt like it looked right. And with that you can tie a pretty ribbon bow over both layers of twine to make the little jar flower-ready. Imagine a navy and red ribbon for a nautical them wedding? I think I may have just inspired myself. Love it when that happens.
Et voila! A few carnations, some baby’s breath, a spray rose and pink stock complete the look.
Happy crafting!

  37. Felecia - Orlando Wedding Photographer says:

    I was wondering how you were going to pull off beautiful with that twine, but you certainly did. The diagonal section that also twisted really added dimension to the ensemble and the bow finished it off perfectly. Very beautiful!

  38. Felecia- Tampa Florida says:

    I love this! The figure 8 pattern really makes all the difference!!! Thanks for sharing it looks great :)

  39. Desi says:

    Hi, here's a tip for next time you have a celebration and want to use mason jars. I noticed you said you got yours at Hobby Lobby….way too expensive for their jars. Next time go to your local hardware store and go into the "canning" section; there you will find 10 or 20 canning jars boxed at a very reasonable price. Your buying several so you get a better price. Hope this was helpful! ;)

  40. Claire Gallam says:

    What a great idea!!

  41. Nicole-Lynn says:

  42. I love these jars, adding twine to them makes all the difference and give them a very rustic feel – just love it.

  43. Lisa Brown says:

  44. Katherine says:

  48. Elle says:

    Hi! I am attempting to do this project for the centerpieces for my wedding. I was wondering if you could show a step by step of how to do the diagonal twist. I have been trying to figure it out all afternoon but it keeps coming out sloppy looking. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks!

  49. Cindy says:

    Really pretty! I would also distress the metal jar top thing to add to the vintage look! Nice work!

  50. Seckley says:

    I tired this and it’s not as easy as it looks. The first layer yes but I haven’t been able to get the second layer to look right. Yours are great!!
