The humble mason jar has become a staple in DIY decorating! There are countless ways to use mason jars and today, another blogger friend of mine has an easy Fall mason jar centerpiece to share with you! It's a budget-friendly way to bring a touch of nature to your Fall table.
Hi I'm Lucy and I blog over at Patina Paradise where I love to share inexpensive diy projects, repurposed decor and my latest furniture updating ideas.
Today I am happy to help Cindy out by sharing with you an easy Fall project that will give your decor a nice rustic touch.
Since moving to the country I really enjoy the free crafting supplies that nature provides. Fall is my favorite season and I had saved up some oak leaves and acorn tops from different outings to the park. The only thing you may need to purchase are guinea feathers, but really any feathers will do.

Supplies Needed to Make Fall Mason Jar Centerpiece
- medium sized jars
- white burlap fabric or burlap printer sheets
- oak leaves… real or artificial
- guinea feathers and black feathers
- fabric of your choice cut into strips
- chalkboard tags or painted mason jar tags
- hot glue and hot glue gun
- acorn tops (optional)
How to Make a Fall Mason Jar Centerpiece
Using the fabric of your choice cut a thinner strip and layer on top of the burlap by tying a knot and cutting the ends.
Carefully place your oak leaf in between the two fabrics. At this point you can glue your feathers on each side of the leaf and call it good.
If you want to add the wooden tags that look like enamel, you can find the tutorial for the faux enamel tags HERE.
You could put whatever you like on the tags… numbers or letters. I decided to add the date for Thanksgiving last year, so that I can look forward to it.
I glued double acorn tops on the outside edge of the first and last jar for some extra texture.
I made 3 jars so that they would fit in this little tool tote that I found at a Rummage Sale for $2.
If you don't have oak leaves where you are you could buy them online or use burlap sheets or even coordinating fabric and cut them out.
I think these Fall mason jars would look great as a centerpiece on table or on a sideboard. They really are very simple to make, and cost very little but make a pretty statement. Hope I have inspired you to get creative with some jars and items you can probably find in your backyard. Happy Fall Y'all!
Thank you SO much to Lucy for sharing this easy (and inexpensive) Fall project! I haven't done much crafting with feathers, but love the way they look here with the leaves and acorns. I hope you are inspired to get your Fall on, if you haven't started already!
