Mason Jar Help!

Hello! I am having trouble deciding what to put under the candles in our mason jars. Our centerpiece is a small fall tree with two buckets hanging from the branches with candles in them, a small pumpkin and a mason jar with a bigger candle in it. My FH suggested sand but I was hoping to have a few options. I considered candy corn but would that be OK for a wedding? I also can't decide how to decorate the mason jars since the pot the tree is in is half wrapped in burlap. Any help is much appreciated.

    What about doing a floating candle on water in the mason jars?

    How about something like this? It is called jellybean glass and comes in many different colors.

    You could also use black beans - you can spray paint them any color or just leave them black and they look gorgeous - jewelry stores use them in displays a lot!

    How about small rocks/pepples? Like really small ones that give the rustic look?

    I think candy corn would be a bit weird. What you could do is get some fake fall leaves or maybe real ones. Find a candle holder that will hold itself up in the rim on the jar but also hang inside it so that way the candle wont heat up the leaves.

    Dried Beans, marbles, uncooked rice, buttons, beads, jelly beans...

    Go to the bulk barn and walk up an down the isles to see if there is something you like

    I think if you fill the mason jars 1/2 with string pearls (the ones you hang on Christmas tree's) add a thick 2 1/2 inch ribbon of lace around the outside of the jar, then add a skinny/thin ribbon of your wedding color over top the lace. centered tied with a small bow. And a button from a grandmothers dress or mothers dress attached. Add in a small candle or battery operated one.

    Or you can glue the string pearls around the outside of the jar 1/2 way up

    Here's a few other ways to decorate your jars
