Sometimes the most delightful details are the simplest.  A transparent mason jar can become a charming centerpiece with just a few touches. Fill the jar with dried flowers, a few petals, and feathers for a Western, Native American vibe. Here are the steps:

Collect and wash out clear mason jars. If you recycle and use jars that once held food, you might have to soak them in soapy water and run them through the dishwasher at least three times to get rid of any lingering smells!

Sketch out a simple design before painting it onto your jar. White paint in a symmetrical, geometrically patterned image looks great for a desert style. Keep it very simple!

If you make more than one jar, they should look similar. They don’t have to match exactly, but use a unifying theme. You can paint your design with white acrylic craft paint. If you want to have the jars last and look beautiful for years to come, use a glass paint that can be fired in the oven.
