DIY vintage mason jar

DIY vintage mason jar
This looks amazing and it's super easy to make, just follow 3 simple steps!!

supplies needed:
•Quart sized mason jar with lid (I used a mixture of new and old jars from the 70's)
... •Black and white 4x6 picture trimmed to fit. (I printed mine at my local Walgreens)
•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 chose lavender, essential oil anyone? Yum, it smelled good!
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.
