DIY Mason Jar Centerpieces: Floating Candles

This mason jar centerpiece is easy-to-DIY for your wedding! Adding candlelight creates a romantic atmosphere and these mason jars will add both a rustic and whimsical touch. First, you’ll need mason jars (you can buy them in bulk here for about $1 each) and fill with water. Next, tie a decorative ribbon (or raffia, as shown below) to the top of the jar in a bow. Place a floating candle (preferably long burning) in each jar and group approximately 3-4 jars together on each table. Light each candle and enjoy!

**EB TIP: These DIY Mason Jar Centerpieces can also be made into favors. Use the lanterns to provide light to your wedding reception; add a tag to the handle with your name and wedding date. During the reception, instruct guests to take a mason jar lantern home. If you’re worried about open flames, use a plain mason jar (skip adding the water) and place a flameless battery-operated tealight candle in each jar. My sister did this for her wedding and it was such a fun idea!

Happy Planning!

Mason Jar Centerpieces

Looking for simple + sweet table decor that is easy to DIY? We love mason jar centerpieces! Just combine your favorite colorful flowers (for spring and summer some of our favorites include lavender, peonies, daisies, sunflowers, and wildflower bunches) and place in a mason jar full of water. Mason jars are easily my favorite addition to wedding decor and this is just one way to incorporate them. You can find half gallon mason jars (the larger one as seen below with the lavender flowers) via Midwest Finds or buy the regular size mason jars in bulk via Amazon. You can also find mason jars inexpensively at garage sales or estate sales in your area. Get creative + have fun!
