When you think of a fall wedding, you think of tones that are warm and inviting. You think of being cozy. And you think of leaves.
At least, that's what I thought of when I was coming up with ideas for a fall wedding centerpiece. I also decided this was a good time to create a mason jar craft since I actually haven't done any of those on A Bride On A Budget yet, despite mason jars crawling their way into a ton of wedding themes. After a ton of thought (I actually enlisted three people to help), I came up with these mason jar luminary leaf centerpieces. They're perfect as a fall wedding centerpiece or a centerpiece for any other fall party you might be having.
They were easy to make, although they did take a bit of time since I left them to dry overnight before finishing them. After I added everything up, these are under $5. For a centerpiece, that's an incredible price.
Mason Jar Luminary Leaf Centerpieces
What You'll Need:
- Pint mason jar
- Flameless tea light
- Artificial leaves
- Chocolate jute cording
- Mod Podge
- Paint brush
What You'll Do:
Paint Mod Podge on a section of the mason jar.
Stick one of the leaves onto the jar.
Paint Mod Podge over the leaf.
Continue around the jar, layering the leaves as you want.
Now, this is a good time to point out that many of the leaves came folded. It was a big part of the reviews on Oriental Trading's site, but for this project, I didn't care. The leaves would be flat with a layer of Mod Podge over and under them, so folds wouldn't affect my project. If you were using these to decorate on their own, you need to keep this in mind.
Don't worry about being neat with the Mod Podge or that you can see white on the jar. This will dry clear.
At this point, leave these overnight to dry completely.
The next day, wrap the jute cording around the top of the jar. Double knot it and cut the excess cording.
Drop a flameless tea light into the jar.
Scatter some of the leaves around as decorations and your mason jar luminary leaf centerpieces are complete.
