Project (Runway) Challenge: Chicken Wire and Mason Jars

What are all the best dressed jars wearing this fall?

Chicken Wire and Mason Jars

Why Chicken wire of course...

This month's Project Challenge is Chicken wire or screening... I chose chicken wire because of it's sharp appeal on this season's glass jar projects.

Today I'm using Mason Jars, canning jars, and or pasta jars to show you just how easy it is to combine glass jars with chicken wire and get an easy DIY Project [Runway] that is a perfect fit for the upcoming season.

First up is the pasta jar... 

Free after dinner and with great lines, this jar begins it's transformation by being fitted with a cork top. 

Get ready because this Plain Jane is about to get a makeover...

Wrapped in a chicken wire jacket you can already see the magic of this stunning ensemble.

A finial is added to the cork top and tiny measuring spoons for added bling...

This jar is ready for a night out! 

Tres Chic!

Next up is the rusty look... 

A few repurposed hardware embellishments at the neckline and a fringed paint cloth scarf lends a casual rustic look to this jar...

Perfect for a weekend picnic with friends.

Another runway favorite is the twins wearing chicken wire flower frogs... 

Cut a circle the size of a Mason jar lid using either chicken wire or hardware cloth to create a beautiful way to display Fall flowers.

Paint up the the Mason jars in your favorite color and these beauties are decked out for the season and ready for their debut.

  1. I love how these turned out! I'm antsy to make the flower frog lids for my painted jars. What a fabulous idea for those seasonal flowers!! <3

  2. I love dressing up jars like this--the perfect way to make something ordinary a little more special!

  3. Such cute jars! I just love the idea of taking a free jar and making it so much cuter! I'm thinking they would make such afordable hostess gifts filled with bath salts or candy!

  4. I love the look of these! Since I have a lot of leftover chicken wire and some old jars from my Grandma's basement I just might make up a few of these to add to my shop this fall!

  5. Very cute! And I loved your commentary on their transformations. ;)

  6. I love mason jars and chicken awesome!!
