Christmas Mason Jar Centerpieces

Make these simple and beautiful Christmas Mason Jar Centerpieces in minutes! They feature cranberries, fresh pine, orange slices, and water for the floating candles.

I absolutely love these simple mason jar lanterns. Not only are they so lovely, but they literally take just a few minutes to put together. They’ll be perfect on your Christmas table, and any holiday party or gathering!

All the colors are perfection…the green of the pine and red of the cranberries, along with the orange. It’s simplicity at its very finest, and gorgeous Christmas farmhouse style.

You need just a few supplies to put them together:

Start with your jar, and fill it about 2/3 full with water. Add the orange slice, then the pine, followed by the cranberries.

The last step is to add the tea light on top, which makes it a gorgeous holiday floating candle. If you are hosting a party indoors, you could try a battery operated tea light, but I would make sure it’s not touching the water. Balance it on the pine, or just opt to use rock salt in the bottom of the mason jar instead of water.


That’s it! Seriously so easy! I love putting several of them down the middle of my table, surrounded by some extra greenery and ribbon. The glow of the candles is sheer perfection.

I just love simple, easy, and quick decor ideas that look like you spent all day!
