Quick and Easy Mini Mason Jar Fall Decor



I wanted a little something extra on the dining room table this Fall without taking up too much room. Thankfully, I had two little 1/2 pint mason jars in the closet that were just begging to be put to good decor use! Click on through to see how I made these extremely easy little dudes.






SUPPLIES NEEDED
1/2 Pint Mason Jar
Orange Burlap
Glue Dots
Pop Up Glue Dots
Gold Washi Tape
Twine
Cricut Explore Air


Oh that's right. I used the iPad app! You can see I had a low battery so I had to make it quick...and thankfully using the app is SO easy that it didn't take me long at all. Phew. 


The first thing I did was cut out my leaf using the Cricut Explore Air. You could definitely use a punch for this, but since I have a Cricut Explore, I don't really need punches! 

I had saved the project previously on my desktop (from making the first one as my prototype), so accessing it from my iPad app was a total breeze. You just select "my projects" from the top left corner and it pulls up anything you have saved. Then I could print out another one quickly and easily. It took like 3 minutes. Start to finish. Fo realz.


Since the Explore Air connects with my iPad via Bluetooth, I just had to make sure I had the correct setting ready to roll (I used Cardstock+ since I had a thicker washi tape on top of plain white cardstock.)


Now that the pretty leaf was cut out, I could make with the measurements with the other pieces!

Orange burlap was trimmed to 8 1/2" Long and 2 3/4 Wide.
Faux Leather was trimmed to 1 3/4 wide (but I left it as 12" long for a bit of overlap)

I stuck the orange burlap to the  mason jar using glue dots on the seams. Then, I placed glue dots along the back of the faux leather in a scattered pattern (you can see it in the 2 spot above) and it stuck to the burlap easily! 

I cut some twine, wrapped it around 3-4 times, tied a knot, and cut off the excess tail. Then, I put a pop-up glue dot on the knot and placed the leaf I cut from the Cricut Explore on top of that. 


Ta-da! On the table with the rest of the decor. I love the size of the jars because they aren't overwhelming, but that little bit of gold sparkle from the washi tape is juuuuust right. 

I also love the textures going on with the burlap and the faux leather. Yay Fall!

Happy Crafting, y'all!

  2. Thanks for sharing this! If only I had room on my table for a centerpiece, LOL! It's just my husband and I, so we rarely sit at the table. Consequently my dining room table gets covered with all kinds of stuff... some junk, some bric-a-brac, some functional such as my icemaker which I have no room for in my kitchen. :D

    1. We don't sit at the table very often either - it's only decluttered for stuff like this! ha! :)
