14 Easy Mason Jar Flower Arrangements
Canning jars aren't just for jam! These stunning Mason jar flower arrangements are incredibly easy. Gather a couple of Mason jars, then get inspired by these beautiful blooms.
Pastel Flower Arrangement
Bring garden flowers inside with this fresh Mason jar arrangement. While this idea from Kenarry uses faux flowers, you can use the real deal, too. Start by filling your vase with seasonal favorites or classic blooms, like light pink roses, carnations or lisianthus. Then nestle smaller, delicate flowers between the larger “star” flowers to make your painted Mason jar pop. Wrap with a suede shoelace to give it a farmhouse effect.
Planter Box Flower Arrangement
This arrangement deserves a spot on your dining room table. Line up a few Mason jars within a tabletop-friendly planter box. From here, you can fill each Mason jar with the same blooms or go for a varied but coordinated look. We love the arrangement that How to Nest for Less did with two ivory flower arrangements at the ends with a warm terra cotta arrangement in the middle. The best part about this cute idea? You can use it all year long with seasonal picks.
For something a little different, make a succulent arrangement. Use a regular Mason jar, or a Mason jar mug like The Succulent Eclectic did. Include a variety of succulent cuttings for visual appeal. (Maybe even a pink succulent?) Make a wire “stem” for each one using tape-wrapped floral wire, so they’ll stand up in the vase. (You can buy both in this floral arrangement kit.) Fill with succulent potting mix and rocks and to finish the look, add a bow with any fabric of your choosing.
Rustic Flower Wall Decor
Now here’s a statement! This rustic idea from Christina Maria Blog will catch everyone’s eye. Attach horse clamp clips to a wooden plank and place a Mason jar inside each one, making sure each jar is tightly secured. Then for the fun part: Fill them with pretty peonies or any other bloom you like. (Send a message with your blooms by learning these popular flower meanings.)
Picture Frame Flower Arrangement
Perfect for special occasions and as a Mason jar gift, this picture frame flower arrangement from Home Stories A to Z is too special for words. First you’ll want to pick our your blooms. Grocery store flowers will do just fine. Then paint your Mason jar a matching color to your chosen flower arrangement, leaving an opening for a photo. Then, attach your photo to the inside of the jar with painter’s tape. (Painter’s tape makes it easy to swap photos later!) To finish off your jar, spray with clear spray paint. Once you’re ready to add your flowers, put them in a plastic cup inside the Mason jar so you don’t ruin your photo. (Check out this viral tape trick that makes flower arrangements look professional.)
Summer Flower Arrangement
Bring in the sunshine with this colorful summer flower arrangement. Use matte paint to give your Mason jar bright stripes like Real Creative Real Organized did in this Mason jar idea. Arrange with florals that scream summertime, like Gerber daisies and hydrangeas. Remember, the bigger the bloom, the fewer you’ll need in each vase, so making this arrangement is easy breezy. (Here are the unique vases that our stylists love.)
Cottagecore Flower Centerpiece
Transform your home into a cottage oasis with this pretty butterfly flower arrangement from Design Improvised. Dress up cottagecore florals, like baby’s breath, lilacs or hydrangeas with teeny tiny butterfly accessories. Arrange florals in a clear or painted Mason jar, then top with a few of these butterfly stickers. (Learn how to pick the best vase shape for your flower arrangement.)
Purple Mason Jar Arrangement
How fun is this dreamy purple Mason jar flower arrangement from Two Purple Couches? First, you’ll need to snag a limited-edition purple Mason jar for this flower display. Place white roses in the jar, then tuck purple waxflowers and lemon leaves in between so the purples and greens can pop through. Finish it off by tying a twine bow at the top. By the way, here’s how to find the best grocery store flowers.
Lemonade Stand Flower Arrangement
This lemon Mason jar flower arrangement from Love the Day is fresher than homemade lemonade. For this arrangement, layer real or faux lemon slices until they reach the top of the jar. Then, add white snapdragons, hydrangeas and yellow and green mums to your Mason jar vase. (For a special vase, read our review on the Amaranth Vase—it’s designed to keep flowers fresh.)
Fall Flower Centerpiece
This autumn Mason jar flower arrangement is the perfect DIY fall centerpiece. Fill moody amber Mason jars with a variety of cream-colored blooms, like strawflowers, bunny tails and carnations, for a rustic look.
Gold Mason Jar Flower Arrangement
Add glam to any room with this gold Mason jar flower arrangement. Grab a few Mason jars and some metallic gold paint. Paint varying stripe designs on each. Then, pop a seasonal blossom or two into each jar. We recommend grouping them in odd numbers for the best balance.
Hanging Mason Jar
Bring your flower arrangement to life by using this hanging Mason jar idea from 17 Apart. To keep your flowers in place, make a “frog lid” with hardware cloth to rest on top of your Mason jar. Then, create a hanger with curled wire and twine. Place peonies, sweet peas, dusty miller and other favorite flowers within the frog lid. Hang your jar from a decorative hook.
Pedestal Flower Arrangement
Need flowers for a special occasion? This pedestal flower arrangement will do the job. Paint a wooden pedestal candleholder and the bottom half of a Mason jar the same color. When the paint is dry, rest the Mason jar on the pedestal and fill it with flowers, like alstroemeria. For this arrangement, we like monochromatic blooms with saturated hues. Add lemon leaves for extra green.
Transform your home into a winter wonderland with these winter flower arrangements by blogger Kristen Hewitt. Talk about beautiful Christmas tabletop decor! Grab white hydrangeas, cranberries and Christmas tree clippings for this Mason jar arrangement. Fill a quart jar with water and the clippings. Then, add a handful of cranberries. Finally, stick your white hydrangeas in the middle. If you have a few smaller jars, float a candle in each for extra glow.
