I love mason jars. I love things that are hand-painted. When I found out about our hand-painted Mason Jar Lanterns, I was totally crushin’. I love the intricate simplicity of them, and how – because they’re hand-decorated – no two are exactly alike.
They come in an array of different colors and patterns and are perfect to use in so many ways. The opportunities are seriously endless. Today I want to show you guys all the different spaces I’d decorate with these little beauties – and just how I’d do it. How would you decorate with our Mason Jar Lanterns?
1. In my bathroom
In my bathroom I have my cotton balls and cotton swabs displayed in little glass jars that are wrapped in birch wood (the jar on the right is actually from my bathroom). I would love to add one of our hand-painted jars into the mix and fill it with cotton balls as you see above. I love how fresh and clean the cotton balls look in the clear jar against the pearly white designs. It’s the perfect feeling for a bathroom.
2. In my kitchen
I love the idea of using the jars to display cooking utensils, tea bags, and other kitchen necessities. It just gives that extra ounce of “pretty” that (in my opinion) every kitchen needs.
3. In my craft room
Alright, so maybe my “craft room” is more of a container under my bed that’s filled to the brim with craft supplies, but when I have a home of my own, I am positive that I’ll have an entire room – hopefully an entire little barn – dedicated to crafting. And the first thing on my list of necessary supplies will be a bunch of these gorgeous mason jars to keep things organized yet pretty all at once.
4. In my living room
Okay, so I might not have a living room either at this point, but this idea will also work for my bedroom, kitchen, or bathroom. Dried flowers! Or fresh flowers! Just flowers in general. I would fill a bunch of our decorated mason jars with flowers, add some vintage glass containers into the mix, and place them atop a little table. It’s amazing how a bunch of flowers can create an incredible feeling of coziness in a room.
5. In my backyard
Let’s not forget about the intended purpose for these little beauties – lanterns! I would love to get, like, ten of these babies, fill them with candles, and hang them on tree branches outside. This would be absolutely perfect for outdoor parties or for just enjoying these last few days of true fall weather on a Sunday afternoon before winter makes its appearance.
