Mason Jar Thanksgiving Centerpiece
As you all know, I love Mason Jars and chalkboard paint and this year’s Thanksgiving centerpiece takes full advantage. Of course I used things that I have used before to make a fun, simple, rustic centerpiece that is perfect for my Thanksgiving table. With just a little time and a few Mason Jars you too can make this Mason Jar Thanksgiving Centerpiece.
What you will Need:
- 4 Mason Jars with Lid
- 1 jar Chalkboard Paint
- 4 small containers of fall colored acrylic paints: I used Brown, orange, gold and olive
- 1 wood plaque
- 4 Pack Frog Lid Inserts
Step 1: Mason Jar Thanksgiving Center Piece
Paint the wood plaque with the chalkboard paint and let dry. You may have to paint a second coat to a nice smooth solid finish.
Step 2: Mason Jar Thanksgiving Center Piece
Paint the four Mason jars using my “How to Paint Mason Jars” Tutorial. You will need the chalkboard paint and the acrylic paints you have chosen for this process.
Step 3: Mason Jar Thanksgiving Center Piece
Once the Mason jars have dried completely, paint a square on one side of each jar using the black chalkboard paint. You should use painter’s tape to tape off the area. More than one coat will be needed.
Step 4: Mason Jar Thanksgiving Center Piece
Once the black squares have dried take a piece of chalk and sketch the letters FALL on the chalkboard paint.
Step 5: Mason Jar Thanksgiving Center Piece
Cut four pieces of twine to wrap around the top of the jars and tie a simple knot.
Step 6: Mason Jar Thanksgiving Center Piece
Add the frog lid inserts and the lids. Place each Jar on the previously painted wood plaque then use some different colored chalk to draw vines connecting the jars together.
Step 7: Mason Jar Thanksgiving Center Piece
Fill the jars with water and add flowers and you are ready for a festive Thanksgiving.
