These awesome memory jars will bring style to your home decor. It’s a super easy 3-step project that adds a vintage touch while allowing family, baby, or engagement pictures to be incorporated into your reception decor.

Supplies you’ll need:

•Quart sized mason jar with lid (I used a mixture of new and old jars from the 70’s)
•Black and white 4×6 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. We 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.

Remember, you can take any spin on this you want, but there’s a beauty in the natural look of a black and white image in sepia toned oil. Good luck creating yours!
