I have the easiest and prettiest DIY mason jar Christmas vase idea for you! When the folks at Newell Brands, makers of Ball® Fresh Preserving Products asked if I wanted to participate in a gift exchange incorporating their jars, I couldn’t resist. The possibilities for mason jar crafts are endless and I welcomed the opportunity to push my creativity to create a one-of-a-kind gift.

I bet if you’re reading this blog post, you’re a craft lover who has made at least one mason jar craft. Transforming these simple canning jars that have been around for 130 years into awesome pieces of home decor has been a huge trend recently. I’ve painted the inside of the jars before to use them as vases, but this time I used chalk paint on the outside and glued on some pretty faux winter foliage from the craft store.

Adding the flowers to the outside is an unexpected touch and I think the added textural element makes them so chic.
