Vintage Photo Jars I LOVE! (Wedding centerpiece or home decor)

This is such an awesome Idea that I plan on implementing later.

This couple decided to make their own table center pieces for their wedding reception.  Plan on making some of these to go around the house and def as a wedding decoration in the future.  

What you need:

•Quart sized mason jar with lid (70's old school jar)
•Black and white 4x6 picture trimmed to fit
•Vegetable oil
•Dried flowers (optional)
1.) Insert your picture into the mason jar and pour enough vegetable oil to cover completely.
2.) Put some dried flowers on the opposite side of the picture. I will use lavender like she did
3.) Tighten the lid up and it's done! The vegetable oil will suspend the picture inside the jar without penetrating it, causing it to look aged and slightly transparent. A total vintage look of old yellowed pictures from the past.

Looks Beautiful and I cant wait to try it in my new home.  Original Post can be found here.

  2. Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little
    lost on everything. Would you advise starting with
    a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any tips? Kudos!
