Burlap Wrapped Jars

Wrapping jars with burlap ribbon is a lovely and affordable way to add decorations to your home, party, or wedding. The natural material brings warmth and charm to any project.

Continue reading below for a fun and easy tutorial. I know this craft project will inspire you to decorate a few jars for yourself!

  • Cut a strip of burlap ribbon that is long enough to wrap around the jar, then glue the ribbon to the jar with a hot glue gun.

  • Add flowers to the jar (real or artificial).


These next steps are optional. I thought it would be fun to hang the jars on a trellis I painted. I either keep the small trellis in my house or outside on my back porch. It’s just a fun way I like to showcase flowers.

First, I tied one end of a long string of jute twine around the neck of a jar.

Next, I hung the jar by tying the other end of the string around the top of the trellis. ~Continue the previous steps for how many jars you want to hang from the trellis.

Finally, I poured a small amount of water inside the jars and added flowers.

As I mentioned earlier, the trellis part of this project is optional. The jars and flowers make awesome table centerpieces or you can hang them from another object like a ceiling hook, tree branch, or a wall hook.
