Did you know the average cost of a wedding in the United States these days is nearly $27,000? That’s no small chunk of change! Many brides are cutting costs these days with some well thought out DIY wedding centerpieces.

If you’re a bride or helping to plan a wedding on a budget, you’re likely looking for centerpiece ideas that are not only friendly to the wallet but pretty and also don’t take a lot of time. I’ve got an idea that meets all of those criteria: chalk painted mason jars. You don’t need any crafting skills to complete this project. Plus mason jars are very inexpensive, and one bottle of chalk paint goes a long way. You can make enough centerpieces for a wedding for under $50! Learn how to make them below.
