Are you going to be entertaining this month? Anxious about how your table will look? I’m here to tell you that table centerpieces don’t have to be elaborate or costly to be pretty.
When my breakfast room was nearing completion, I knew I didn’t want to add yet one more complicated project to my “to do” list, and I certainly didn’t want to spend more money for something to decorate my table, so I looked around for things I already had on hand that I could use.
The answer? Jars. I’ve confessed many times that I’m a hoarder of empty glass jars. I can always find uses for them!
I gathered up four jars of varying sizes, shapes, and textures. My favorite is this little jelly jar…
I gave them all a coat of primer and then white spray paint, and then used jute twine and hot glue to cover up the threaded tops of the jars.
I gathered them together on a herringbone tray that I made a few months ago, added a couple of candles, and then added some fresh flowers. I had everything on hand except for the flowers, and they were $4 per bunch. So my total expense was $8.
I love almost-no-cost decorating! Don’t you?

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
