This week for Waste Not Wednesday my host’s and I are having a fun challenge! We have had our thinking caps on for all things Mason Jars. Because we are right smack bang in the middle of moving this project needed to be something simple and super easy. Oh if you have been following me for a bit we FINALLY found a house and pick the keys up on Thursday! We will be very relieved when it’s all done and dusted. So today I’m sharing how to make Farmhouse Flower Mason Jar Vases. Be sure to check back here on Wednesday to link up any Mason Jar projects you may have made and to also see my blogging pals cleverness!

- 2 x Mason Jars
- 2 x Glass Candle Sticks or Glasses – I found these 2 glasses at my local thrift store. Just make sure that the base is wide enough so that when you glue the jars on top that it’s not top heavy.
- Fusion Mineral Ultra Grip
- Fusion Mineral Champlain
- Paint Brush
- 120 Grit Sanding Block
- E6000 Glue
Step 1 – Make sure the outside of your mason jars and glasses or candle sticks are clean and dry. Give each piece 2 coats of Ultra Grip letting it dry completely after each coat. Don’t be worried if it dries milky.
Step 2 – Once the Ultra Grip is completely dry using Champlain give each piece 2 coats. Let dry.
Step 3 – Taking your sanding block distress to your liking. Then grab your E6000 Glue and glue the base to the jars. Let dry over night.
Step 4 – Wrap some jute around the top of the jars and finish with a bow.
Pop some water in and some fresh blooms and there you have a super quick easy project to make in an afternoon! They would make lovely gifts or be great for a wedding!
