Simply gather some patriotic decorations, such as patriotic flags, patriotic flowers, and USA symbol tableware, and place them inside the jars.

Today, I want to share with you a great way to jazz up an every day Mason Jar for the up and coming 4th of July Holiday.  With Mason Jars being so popular, I thought it would be super cute to have some that had ruffles on them making a great centerpiece.  So, here is my tutorial for the 4th of July Rustic Mason Jar.

Rustic Mason Jars

Here’s What You Need:

  • Mason Jar (Quart Size with ring)
  • White Spray Paint (Flat Protective Enamel)
  • 3 Bandannas (Red, White & Blue) I found these at Walmart.
  • Hot Glue
  • Needle & Thread (But, a sewing machine is preferred)
  • Button Cover Kit


Begin by spray painting the mason jar with the white spray paint and let the it dry thoroughly.

Step 1: Cut your three strips of fabric.  Cut your Blue bandanna 4″ in width, Red to 3″, and White 2″. Make sure you have no finished edges remaining, so go ahead and cut them off of the ends.

Step 2: Fray the edges of your bandannas by pulling a few of the the top & bottom horizontal threads of the bandanna.  You can also use a sewing pin to help fray the edges.  Just pick at the individual strings and then pull on them to help the edges fray.

Step 3: Lay your (3) fabrics on top of one another and sew a loose single stitch down the middle.

Step 4:  To create your ruffle, take one of the two threads and gently pull it, causing the sewn fabric to pucker. 

Step 5: To create the fabric flower, cut a 1″ strip of fabric 6″ in length. Next, base stitch along the bottom of the fabric. Once you get to the end, pull it tight and sew/tie it off.  Create a button using an easy button cover kit.   I finished the flower by sewing the fabric covered button to the center.

 There you have it. I think these would make great centerpieces for any 4th of July Celebration.

Frequently Asked Questions

What were Mason jars originally used for?

Mason jars came in handy for folks who lived in regions with limited growing seasons in early 20th-century America. The jars were used at fairs to display jams and pickles for judging and awards while also becoming an integral part of farming culture. This was a reflection of the labor-intensive nature of the jam-making process.

Why are Rustic Mason jars important?

Coli posed serious risks. The art of food preservation wasn’t fully developed until John Landis Mason created his airtight invention, the Mason jar, however simple canning, pickling, and curing techniques helped consumers increase the shelf life of their food.

Why do mason jars have two lids?

A two-piece cover is required for home canning in order to allow air to escape during the pressure canning or boiling water processes. A one-piece lid prevents air from escaping, blowing out the jar’s bottom or causing the lid to buckle.
