You're going to love this easy-peasy decorative idea for your reception
Jam jars filled with blooms make for a low-effort, high-impact way to decorate your wedding venue.
You will need...
- Glass jars
- Masking tape
- Metallic pink spray paint
- Glitter spray paint
- Wire cutters
1 Clean each jar thoroughly then apply the tape in the pattern you’d like to create. Any non-taped areas will be painted, so cover everything you want to stay clear, including the rim and base. Apply two coats of metallic spray paint to the jars, then leave to dry.
2 Without removing the masking tape, apply a coat of glitter spray paint to your jar. Once it is dry, pull away the tape. Cut a 40cm length of wire and wrap it around the rim of the jar. Twist the ends together to secure it.
3 Cut two 40cm lengths of chain using pliers. Snip open the last link in each, and slip them through the wire around the rim of the jar. Close the chain links tightly – both should now be securely attached. Finally, cut a further length of chain (this will be used to hang your jars), again snipping open the last links. Slip both shorter chains onto this one and close.
