DIY: Twine Wrapped Jars

This is an extremely easy DIY, so easy in fact you probably could have figured this out yourself. But I'm going to show you anyway! These beautifully rustic and charming jars will be used at my wedding in May (squeeeeee) as centre pieces. However, these jars would also be cute for storing makeup brushes or pens and of course can be made using different sizes of jars.

What you'll need:

  • Mason jars - I got mine at the local MCC for about $0.25 a jar
  • Twine - Canadian Tire or wherever... the roll cost me about $3.99
  • Hot glue - Be careful.. I burned myself.
  • Mod Podge
  • Scissors
  • Coffee (optional)
  • Good music (optional)

First I stuck the twine to the bottom of the jar using a glob of hot glue. Then I brushed on some Mod Podge all around the top of the jar and wrapped the twine tightly, making sure that there were no gaps between each layer of twine. I tried one jar without the Mod Podge, and it worked... but not as well. The twine was just doing what it wanted to and was not staying where I put it.
Finally, I secured the end of the twine to the jar using a dollop of hot glue.

I hope you found this easy 'lil diy helpful and let me know if you'd like to see more of my wedding diys.

Until next time!
