Twine Wrapped Mason Jars – Jute Mason Jar DIY.
I’ve adopted a new mantra this year: K.I.S.S.
And, no, I’m not talking about the crazy costumed and make-upped 70’s metal band.
I’m talking Keep. It. Simple. Stupid.
And the Stupid is me … not you. Not ever, my dear readers! My wonderful, smart friends!
It’s a reminder to me (the Stupid in K.I.S.S., that is) to stop overthinking and over-complicating things. Because I can be the queen of overthinking and over-complicating things …
In fact, this whole blog started with my overthinking and over-complicating. With paint chips that were taped to wall for months … okay, years … on end as I contemplated the subtle differences between four shades of sage green.
Yes, sage. That’s how old this blog is. Sage was still around. Albeit, on the way out. But still around!
And every project I contemplated (back in time before Pinterest) included notebooks with pages ripped from magazines. And those pages would linger in those notebooks for so long that when I would revisit to add yet another ripped out magazine page, I couldn’t remember what it was I liked in those older ripped out pages!
But I’m done with my drag-my-heels-overthink-over-complicate-things approach to home decor and diy … and even crafts. Yes, I overthink crafts!
Hot glue vs. Mod Podge? Paint brush or Spray paint? Sew it or hot glue it?
Okay, maybe I’m not 100% done overthinking. More like 95%. 😉
Today’s twine wrapped mason jars is the epitome of K.I.S.S. In fact, this project is so K.I.S.S. that I debated if I should even create a tutorial …

Press in place. Carefully!

My teacher friends and I were just talking about those notebooks full of pages from Country Living, Traditional Home and BH&G. Thank goodness for Pinterest!
I hope you are adjusting okay to the empty nest, my friend!
Thank goodness! Good to know I’m not the only one who looks at a carefully saved picture from a magazine (many years old!) and says,”Huh? Why??” 😉
Love it! So glad I’m not alone!!! 🙂
Keeping it simple always works for me! Your twine wrapped mason jar is perfect.
If you have time this weekend, I’d love to have you link up at Create, Bake, Grow & Gather.
What a cute and simple idea! I love your new mantra…as I too overthink everything. And thanks for detailed tutorial. I have yet to try twine on a vase but now I know exactly how.
I’m so glad you shared your twine wrapped mason jar at Create, Bake, Grow and Gather this week Linda. I’m delighted to be featuring it at tonight’s party and pinning too.
I think you meant to write that you were NOT referring to the band called Kiss.
LOL thanks for the correction! 🙂
