I stopped by the local fruit and veggie stand and picked up a fresh bouquet of gerbera daisies for $5.50. I knew they would be perfect for this flower DIY.

I’ve already told you how much I love mason jars. They are the unsung heroes of weddingland. Just recently, I purchased a box of vintage jars from a yard sale for  $1. I knew from the moment I got them in my hot little hands that they would be ideal for use as hanging flower vases.

Groupings of these flower vases look lovely hanging from tree branches. They also make pretty aisle markers when hung from shepherd’s hooks or from the side of a bench or pew. Not only are they super easy to make, they’re inexpensive.

Hanging Flower DIY

You will need:

A mason jar

Wire

Pliers

A bouquet of flowers

Wrap wire around the lip of the jar. Make sure it’s beneath the lip so it will stay in place. Snip the wire, leaving enough to secure it properly around the jar.

Use the pliers to make a ‘u’ shape on one end of the wire. Place other end of wire through the ‘u’ . Make another ‘u’ shape with the other end.

Cut a seperate 11 inch piece of wire for the handle. Insert the piece under the wire that is around the jar. Twist to secure wire.

Make a small bend in the wire that is around the lip so that the handle will stay in place.
