How To Make Mason Jar Picture Frames

You can display photos in a mason jar in two ways – by positioning the picture in the jar or pasting the picture on the jar.

Method I: Vintage Picture In Mason Jar

Things You Will Need

Materials you will need for this project are a clean mason jar, vegetable oil, dried flower petals and herbs and a vintage photo.

Things You Will Need

Pour Oil

Pour enough vegetable oil to ensure that the photo stays drenched in the oil after it is inserted in the Mason jar. Don’t worry, the oil will not spoil the photo but it will further enhance the vintage effect.

Pour Oil

Add Herbs And Flowers

Put the dried flower petals or herbs in the jar. Use your creativity in selecting and arranging the herbs and petals. There are countless options. Either place a few sprigs of rosemary or mint in the bottle or add large amounts of dried flowers and leaves in the bottle.

You can even insert it at the center with the herbs and flowers around it.
