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.

  1. My friend wrapped jars in burlap and labeled them for her wedding. We tapped beer in them for the celebration and took them home after. We now display them in our kitchen. So cute!
