I like it

I remember when a few years ago people were buying or making these with stems up to drink out of and now the stem is upside down and mason jar up. What a great way to make a quick gift that can be used as so many differt things planters,holding pencils and pens and even craft supplies. I like that you can use the size you like and decorate to your liking. Great project idea.

Well, she does leave a lot open to interpretation here. It's written in basic steps with hardly any detail. I am usually accustomed to reading very detailed descriptions as to what type of embellishments to use, what kind of glassware would work best, things like this. That being said, you cannot go wrong with this craft DIY as it is pretty self explanatory. Beautiful for the holiday table or buffet.

These are cool. You can get both the jars and candle sticks at dollar tree. You can make them for any season. I think some silver glitter half way up the jar, a votive candle inside and a silver or red ribbon and bow would certainly be gorgeous. Thanks for inspiring me.

I love mason jar crafts because the possibilities are always endless. You can literally make anything out of a mason jar! And it's environmentally friendly which is always a plus )

These homemade mason jars on the pedestals would be great as a grouping on a buffet table, filled with candies and other sweets- for your bridal shower or for your wedding reception. They are so easy to make for first timers. And fun, too. Beautiful in gold or silver with white -)

This is such a cute idea for a summer center piece. I love that they are all different heights!
