Make Paper Mason Jar Garland

[pinit]Easy DIY Mason Jar Garland[pinit]

Mason jar crafts have become a phenomenon over the past 2 years, to say the very least.  I, for one, am a huge fan of incorporating them into my home decor whenever possible.  You combine mason jars with my papercrafting obsession, and it is almost more excitement than a blogger like me can withstand.  Well, those two worlds collided for me in this Sizzix Canning Jars Die by Eileen Hull.  Today I am sharing how I used it on some recycled cardboard and fall patterned scrapbook paper to make this fun garland adorning my headboard.

    I saw a GORGEOUS dorm room with a mason jar garland and some flowers in each jar, and this would be soo much cheaper and just as pretty. For the stems I could adhere twigs to the front and stick some flowers on the top and put a gloss on top! It seems so confusing, I know, but it’s gorgeous in my mind! «3
