Glass Jar Centerpiece With an Adirondack Twist

1 Material
I don’t usually gravitate toward glass (you know I love my ironstone) but I am always up for a challenge. I’m actually sharing 2 projects combined to make one cute farmhouse vignette. So here is my glass jar centerpiece using a DIY tabletop crate, Adirondack style.
I started with a few bottles or glass containers in different shapes and sizes. I had picked up the large jar with the metal handle at a thrift store a while back for $2 and the others were either less than $1 or out of the recycling bin. I like the different heights and the texture each adds to the centerpiece.
For the crate, we used branches from our yard. Hubby cut a few small ones down for me. He’s really good with a chain saw as you can see in our Building an Adirondack Bridge post. Then he used the chop saw to cut the smaller pieces…
To get the right size I just measured around the largest jar as that was the one that would be in the center.
Once all the pieces were cut, he assembled it with a small nail gun. Here’s the final product…
