Mason Jar Fun

We have all seen mason jars used a thousand ways, but I thought I would share how I used them for a baby shower I co-hosted at work.

My co-worker is having a baby girl (any day now) and she loves the Star Wars movies.  We wanted to keep it girlie but include some Star Wars elements.  For the decor, we decided to incorporate stars….that’s close enough, right?

After several trips to Michaels, I finally had a vision of how I wanted to serve our beverages. We served pink lemonade, also known as “Jedi Juice”.

What you need:

  • Mason jar
  • Fine glitter
  • Glue for the glitter (the type you can roll on works best)
  • Twine/Rope
  • Tags (I chose stars)
  • Straws (if desired)
  • A plate or something to pour glitter on

I first, poured my silver glitter into a plate.

Once your stars are complete, use your twine or rope to attach the tags to the mason jar.  Add a cute straw and you are done!

I made the backdrop from streamers…it was super easy. I then hung silver stars to go with the silver stars on the mason jars.
