Quilted Jelly Jar Flower Vase

Hello DecoArt readers! Springtime always inspires to me to add floral décor to our home. I usually pick up a bundle of flowers at the farmer’s market once a week to use as a centerpiece for our dinning room table. Lately I’ve been incorporating flowers from Michaels so that I don’t have to worry about replacing them every few days. Mason jars are always my first choice to use as a vase. I created this simple chalky finish mason jar with lace and ribbon to use year round in our home. It’s perfect for display flowers on the mantle or using it as a centerpiece for a brunch tablescape.

Items Needed:

  • Mason Jar
  • Paint Brush
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue
  • Flowers


Apply 1-2 coats of chalky finish paint on the mason jar. Allow the first coat to dry for at least an hour or two before applying the second coat. Optional: once the final coat is dry lightly sand some paint off to give the mason jar a distressed look.

Add ribbon to your vase using hot glue. I’m using a lace and satin ribbon from Michaels.

Now it’s time to add your flowers. The faux flowers are also from Michaels but you can use real flowers instead.

Do you still find yourself using mason jars regularly? I’ve always enjoyed using them in a variety of ways in my home from home décor to storing supplies. With a little paint you can transform a plain jar into a beautiful piece of décor that fits your style.
