Watermelon Mason Jar Vase Tutorial

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

I love simple floral arrangements.  Nothing fancy, just some pretty blooms thrown in a jar or vase. 

The flowers at the Watermelon Pool Party were just a few stems of white hydrangeas from Trader Joe's, but I did dress up the jars a bit to fit the watermelon theme.

Materials for Watermelon Mason Jar Vases:

  • craft glue
  • green glitter
  • black sequins
  • red mason jar

Use a paintbrush to apply craft glue to the bottom of the jar.  While still wet, add the green glitter.  Brush off any excess glitter, and glue black sequins to the rest of the jar to resemble seeds.

I found my red mason jars on clearance at Party City, and I can't find any to link to on Amazon, sorry.  If you find them in stock somewhere, tell me and I'll update the post.

Before I found the red jars, I experimented with mixing clear craft glue and red acrylic paint, and painting it on clear glass.  That actually worked quite well, but was obviously more time consuming.  It was also slightly opaque, almost like beach glass.  Still, it's an option if you can only find clear mason jars.

Like video tutorials?  I made one of those for you:

I love the fact that I was able to just wash off the green glitter and sequins after the party, too.  That means these red mason jars are generic once again, and ready for whatever I come up with for Christmas and Valentine's day!
