This is my go-to hack for creating beautiful centerpieces for parties and gifts. I’ve done this so many times with all different types of flowers and each time they come out gorgeous. They also make great teacher and hostess gifts! You could even DIY these centerpieces for a wedding. At about $6 a piece you really can’t beat it.
Wildflower Mason Jar Centerpieces
- Pair of scissors
- Glue gun ***optional
- 3 16 oz mason jars
- 1 bouquet of wild flowers or any flower of your choosing
- 1 ball twine, ribbon or burlap ***optional
- First ywrap your mason jars with the decorative twine, burlap or ribbon. If they are a gift I like to attach a gift tag with the twine. Then tie or secure with a dab of hot glue. If you're not using any of those you can skip this step.
- Next unwrap the bouquet and begin sectioning it out into threes. If you're using wildflowers you will want to evenly distribute flowers and greenery between the three piles. That way each arrangement has variety.
- Then cut flowers to desired length. For wildflowers I like them a little above the mason jar lip so they are wispy. But if I'm using all the same flower, like roses or daisies, I like to keep them as tight to the lip as possible so they all bunch together.
- TIP- Measure the flower length using the mason jar. Hold the flowers up next to the jar on the outside to determine where to cut the stem.
- Finally fill the mason jars with water and begin adding in flowers using the groups you already created. I like to do the flowers first and make sure like flowers are separated and then add in the greenery last.
