Vintage Photo Mason Jar




I love how Cori made her own wedding centerpieces by placing black and white photos into vegetable oil-filled mason jars. The oil preserves the photograph and gives it an aged yellowing effect. She added a sprig of dried lavender to make it smell nice.

  1. I've also seen the mason jars with the neon light from glow sticks. I wonder if you could combine these two elements to light up the photo?

  3. I love this idea. But I have a question. If you take the picture out will it ruin the photo or if you leave it in will it ruin it?

    1. Yes I am sure that once it is in the oil that it is in there for good.... Make sure that you use a copy of the picture.

  10. I am betting if you put some Lavender Essential Oil or Tea Tree Oil ..maybe a teaspoon or less in the quart of oil, it will last a long time... Great idea...

  15. I was thinking this might be a great idea for a family reunion...make them for centerpieces, but then turning it into a game to see who can recognize the most people or families.

  22. Do you use a real photo or a photo copy?

  23. I would imagine that a c-print (photo made from light - as it was with film) rather than an ink jet... but curious if anyone has tried either.

    this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do
    with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I'll certainly be back.
