- Patio Paint (I used the following colors: Blue Bahama, Grey Skies, Cloud White, Wrought Iron Black) (NOTE: this paint is intended for outdoor use)
- White burlap
- Paint brush
- Sewing machine and thread
- Flag hanger
Start by cutting two identical mason jar shapes from the white burlap. You can free hand these or trace a mason jar shape you already have a home. Seriously the mason jar shape does not have to be perfect and you can free hand something that will definitely work!
Paint the bottom of your mason jars with the Blue Bahama paint and the top with Grey Skies. A good thick coat is needed. Be sure to protect your work surface as the paint will go through the burlap. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
Add in lines with the white Patio Paint. You can see how I did my lines below.
Mix the black and white paint to come up with a very dark grey paint. Add your monogram with this paint. Again I just free handed the painting.
Allow to dry completely then put the shapes back to back. Trim with scissors and touch up the paint if needed. Once dry and the same shape, stitch together using your sewing machine. Be sure to leave the “lid” portion open on the sides as this will be where your flag hanger will go through. I still stitched the sides just to keep the entire thing from fraying. Just don’t stitch the front to the back in the lid area.
Take your mason jar flag outside and add it to your garden. You will love the rustic touch it gives to your landscape! Love this mason jar flag and want more ideas for summer using mason jars? We have those for you as well!
