Don't you love decorating with mason jars? They're so versatile and instantly give a classic, cosy feel to any decor, especially around the holidays!
With just a few supplies, you can create a few DIY mason jar centerpieces for your holiday table.
Start by cleaning a few mason jars and filling them almost to the top with water. If you don't have any mason jars on hand, check your local thrift stores before buying them brand new.

Add garland beads to each jar.
Try using a variety of colored garland beads for different looks. I used green, gold and white but using red would look great for Christmas. You can pick these up inexpensively at a dollar store.
Add a tea light candle to each mason jar. I used regular ones but they would look awesome with colored and scented ones. Try red and green for the holidays!
Add some cranberries to the top and fill in the spaces around the tea light candle. Aren't they great! I love how simple they are to put together! Experiment by adding a few drops of food color to the water. You can also replace the garland beads with stones, marbles or other items you think might work well.
