We are bursting at the seams with adorable mason jar ideas that don't cost a lot of money, but make a huge impression!

Did you know that you can get a 12 pack of mason jars for about $10? Tie some ribbon around the top, add some colored sand and a t-lite, and you have instant centerpieces for under $2 each!

And... you can give one to each of the guests to take home at the end of the baby shower - that takes care of centerpieces and baby shower favors all in one swoop!

Did you know that you can easily paint mason jars to create an entire new look? Add some colorful flowers and you have a beautiful masterpiece! My favorite kind of paint to use is chalk paint! It goes on easily and you only need one coat - takes about 5 minutes to paint and dries quickly!

Carnations and baby's breath are 2 of the most affordable flowers for a baby shower. Purchase a bundle of each and add a few to each mason jar. Add water and wrap a strip of burlap and ribbon around each jar. Secure with a dab of glue from a glue gun. So easy and cute!
