As the air gets cooler and days get shorter, we find ourselves holed up inside more often. It used to be a great time to check out new shows and get reacquainted with old favorites but honestly, is there anything good on television these days? Forget the tube (and Candy Crush for that matter). Stay busy by making some chic autumn decor for your home that will have your Pinterest-loving friend green with envy. If you are that Pinterest-loving friend, get excited because one of these projects involves a mason jar. Hit up your local craft story and break out the glue gun.

With these step-by-step instructions, Ann Marie Pierce from Imperial Florist/1-800-Flowers in Baldwin will tell you everything you need to know about creating the perfect mason jar fall floral arrangement, Amber Waves™. Make it.
