    I love it! We’re doing something very similar with mason jars, flowers, & candles. I like how yours turned out!

    Ooow – they look so cute!

    It’s not just the mason jars, it’s the whole effect of the double-layer table cloth, mixed flowers, candle holders and thank-you upstands that make it adorable!

    I hate how everyone judges pinterest ideas as being over-done.  They work well – that’s why people keep doing them!  And you’re right, 99% of people will have never seen anything like it – who looks at wedding stuff on pinterest unless they’re planning a wedding?  They’ll just think you’re super creative 🙂

    The majority of pinterest brides wear white too.  It’s soooo cheesy and overdone but I’m still doing it 😉

    @SweetHoneyBee:  pinterest just means us budget (normal!) brides can have a gorgeous wedding without taking out a second mortgage!

    Maybe the “everything pinterest is over done” mantra came from a jealous society bride 😉

    @SweetHoneyBee:  I voted for beautiful. The look isn’t my cup of tea but I can definitely appreciate how well you styled it. It’s miles better than lots of simlar DIYs that I’ve seen in the past. Great job! 

     

    The only thing I’m unsure about is the length of the flower stems. Becase the flowers are tall and the glasses are so short it looks a little awkward and takes away from the aesthetic. I think that could definitely be solved by getting glasses and jars of different heights and trimming the flowers to fit them. It would be great if you had a mixture of taller and shorter glasses because you could still have tall flowers, but keep the short jars to match the surrounding ones.

    @SweetHoneyBee:  I’m not on pinterest, so I can’t really help you there, but this is what I did with old pickle jars, some other trash items and an LED tea light, each one cost less than $2 to make.

    Pretty!!!… I’m doing kinda the same thing, but I’ll have different size vases and maybe on mason jar to put a candle in. May I ask what size the piece of wood is that you used?
