8 Gorgeous Fall Mason Jar Crafts Perfect For Fall

One of the most enjoyable aspects of fall is getting into the spirit of the season and decorating. There are countless ideas for sprucing up the exterior of a hometo truly embrace the warmth and comfort that comes at this time of year, but it can be difficult to come up with ideas for inside the home.

Some people might not like the extra clutter that comes with decorating during the holidays, while others probably just don’t see the sense in buying expensive decorations to hang up for just a few months–and both are valid points.

Which is where mason jars — one of the easiest and cheapest ways to give your place that autumn feel — comes in. Yes, mason jars embody that homey spirit that surrounds us toward the end of the year, especially when they are decked out in fall colors and filled with various types of flowers and trimmings that abound during the season. Furthermore, they are extremely affordable and readily available almost anywhere.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to grab yourself a few mason jars, some red, orange and brown paint, ribbons, yarn and everything else that screams “fall” to you to get crafty.
