Ideas for Decorating with Mason Jars Around the House
Mason Jar Wine Glasses
Often called “redneck” wine glasses, in the right setting and with the right accessories, they’re anything but “redneck.”
Keep a few of these unique mason jar stemware glasses sitting on your dining room table or show them off on a display shelf anywhere in your home.
For a party, you can add wine glass charms to the stems or wrap the jar itself in a decorative cover to match your décor or to match the theme of a party.
If you’re giving them as gifts to your bridal party, you can have them etched with “Groomsman,” “Bridesmaid,” “Flower Girl,” and “Ring Bearer.” Or get even more personalized by adding first names to the glasses.
You can add special accents to the glasses for the bride and groom to use with their first toast together as husband and wife.
Wall-Mounted Accent Lighting for Your Room
It’s easy to start decorating with mason jars around your home. Every room needs some lighting, right?

If you’re looking for a charming, rustic feel, mount the jars on a piece of real wood.
For something more sophisticated and delicate, you can use chrome or another metal-type fixture.
