buffalo check mason jar fall centerpiece

Buffalo Plaid Fall Mason Jar Centerpiece

Provisions:

  • 4 artisan or mason jars
  • White paint
  • buffalo check scrapbook paper
  • jute ribbon or twine

Materials:

Time: 30 minutes

Cost: $ 6

Difficulty level: Easy

Instructions:

  1. Paint the jars white and let dry.
  2. Use a cutting machine or printer to create letters that say “fall”. The size of the letters depends on the size of your pots. I used the small craft jars and the 1 ″ letters. If you are printing your letters, cut them out, trace them with a pencil on the back of your scrapbooking paper, and cut out the letters from the scrapbooking paper.
  3. Measure the size of your lid and make buffalo check circles for the top. Mine was 3 inches so I made 2 inch circles. You can make them with a circular hole puncher, die cutter, or by tracing a printed shape and cutting it out on scrapbook paper like with the “fall” letters.
  4. Glue a burlap ribbon to the mouth of your pot.
  5. Note: You may need to trace the white portion of the letters with a black pen or marker if they do not look good against the white mason jars.
