Today’s Easter basket idea is a lace trimmed vintage blue mason jar. It can be used as Easter decor or be given as a gift in a jar!
I’ve been busy making Easter baskets and haven’t done any decorating yet. I found these ruffled Easter eggs that I made last year and pulled them out so I would have something to put on my mantle. I figured that a mason jar Easter basket might be the perfect home for one of the eggs. This blue Atlas Strong Shoulder Mason jar is from my sister-in-law. Her mom gave her a box of mason jars that she no longer used and my sister-in-law didn’t want them. I was more than happy to take them off her hands! Then, recently a friend of mine got married and wanted a few vintage blue mason jars to put on tables at her reception. She was having a really hard time finding them so she borrowed mine. When she returned them to me, I found some delightful lace trim around the neck of the jars. I decided to leave it there and add a handle.
I looped the wire around the neck of the jar and twisted it to hold it tight. Then I looped the wire up over the top to form a handle. I threaded the wire under the wire around the neck and twisted it tight to hold it in place. I tied a length of lace trim around the neck and hot glued another piece on the handle.
