Then wrap a piece of white cardstock with white tissue paper and use tape to secure in the back. The shiny side of the tissue paper should be against the cardstock. Then print the image of your choice onto the matte side of the tissue paper as shown below.
Remove the tissue paper from the cardstock. Trim around your image and decide where on your jar you would like it to be placed. Use Americana Decoupage medium to adhere the image to your jar. Printing on tissue paper will make the image blend into the jar more. Just coat your image on the back with the decoupage medium. If you need to add any decoupage to the front, be sure to spray a matte sealer or hair spray over the tissue paper first to lock in the ink.
Once the decoupage dries completely, you can add a hand stamped tag to your jar as shown.

Carolina used just fabric on top of her jar but I wanted to be a little different. I had a vintage handkerchief in my stash so I grabbed it. I bundled it up and secured with a rubber band to make it the proper size to fit on my jar.
I then put it rubber band side down on the jar and added the band of the lid around it. I love that puckered look on the top as well.
This lavender in a mason jar now resides in my bathroom where I can appreciate its amazing scent. I just shake the jar occasionally to stir up the smell. What do you use lavender for in your home? I have a ton more and need a way to use it y’all.
Solar Mason Jar Lights Supplies:
Your solar light will come packaged as shown above. You will need to remove the pull tab for the light to work, and charge it for a few hours in the sun prior to use.
There are two winter versions of the solar mason jar lights that I am going to show you today. First up is one painted with a little glitter snow.
Use a foam pouncer brush and add glitter snow randomly to the jar. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
The second version just involves adding loose snow to the bottom of your jar. This is the non-permanent version that will be easy to change with the seasons. Because the light is in the top and does not get hot, adding items to the jar is fun and easy.
Now lets make the jar into a hanging lantern. Grab your floral wire and some pliers. First, start with adding a loop with your pliers.
Place the wire around your jar mouth and get the location for your second loop, which should be directly across from your first.
Place a second loop in your wire and then stretch it around the mouth of the jar. Use the pliers to secure, twisting very tightly.
Cut off any excess and bend the twisted wire down to avoid injury.
Use a second wire to create a handle by putting it through the loops and twisting to secure.
You are ready to light up the night with your new solar mason jar lights. Look at the way the light sparkles from these great mason jar lanterns.
What items will you add to the inside of your solar mason jar lights? Snow? Or something less seasonal? Just grab the lighted lids from Consumer Crafts and make your own version today.

Y’all knew it was going to be jars right? I started with various paper and embellishments from the American Crafts Mayberry line. I used the decoupage medium to put a large piece of scrap book paper on the entire canvas. You can see my technique for adding paper to a canvas on this post. I use a rubber band to hold the edges in place while the entire thing dries. Once dry you can trim the corners and edges as shown in the picture below.
I cut a mason jar with my Silhouette from pink paper and added that on top with decoupage. I then played with more embellishments until I had something I loved.
Everything was added using the Americana Decoupage Medium even the baker’s twine. Allow your project to dry completely before moving.
Who says you need to paint to make your own art? You can use decoupage and some scrap book embellishments to make fun art for your own home. Get inspiration from my decoupage mason jar canvas art and start your own decoupage canvas today.
Once the buttons were sorted by color, I already felt better about my button “collection”. Okay I might just be a button hoarder. You be the judge. I then cut white card stock to the size of the mason jar lids. I stamped the colors in each jar on the top of the lid.
