Inexpensive Rustic Graduation Table Centerpiece

My friend Lori just created this Inexpensive Rustic Graduation Table Centerpiece for her daughter’s high school graduation party.  It was 100% up my alley because it was very modern farmhouse.  As you know I LOVE mason jars.  I mean who doesn’t? If you are a southerner, you use them for everything from a drinking glass to a vase!  So, when I saw this gorgeous inexpensive rustic centerpiece that Lori created for all of the tables at her daughter’s party, I asked her if I could share the idea with you. I was thrilled that she said yes!

Check out this Inexpensive Rustic Graduation Table Centerpiece. It is easy to make and looks beautiful.

Her design is an affordable idea as you may have many of the items already at your house.  I love that her idea showcased a variety of photos throughout her daughter’s life in the centerpiece.  Her design was simply gorgeous and if you are looking for an inexpensive idea for a graduation party this would be a gorgeous design idea for sure!

Inexpensive Rustic Graduation Table Centerpiece:


Canning Jars (or really any jars will do)

Canning Rings



2018 Paper Die Cuts

Photos of the graduate

Favorite Flowers – love using wildflowers in this design

To Assemble:

Print out a variety of your graduate’s photos and cut them into circles to fit the inside of the canning rings. You can attach with double stick tape. The canning rings make the perfect frame for the photos.

Next attach your “2018” die cut to the canning jars using some twine.  Additionally, you can add a piece of burlap to the canning jar if desired.

On the day of the party fill your canning jars with gorgeous flowers that you either grow or purchase.  A great tip is to use wildflowers or pick up your flowers at Trader Joes.  They sell bunches of flowers like this for around $3.99!  It is well worth the trip if you have one in your area! If you are planning well in advance my advice would be to plant a wildflower garden to use. You can also reach out to your local florist and price purchasing in bulk to save money.

Finally, place a wide sheet of burlap on the table as a “runner” and assemble your design.

Special thanks to my friend Lori Zastrow for sharing her gorgeous rustic graduation table centerpiece design idea with us.  She is so creative and loves her children so much.  It is evident in all that she does for them and this party was a true labor of her love.  I think it could be easily adapted for a baby shower, wedding shower, or wedding rehearsal dinner or wedding!  The sky is the limit with this rustic table centerpiece.
