Supplies needed to make your own Father’s Day mason jars:

- Green Ball mason jars
- Stiff self-adhesive felt sheets
- 3-dimensional fabric paint (like Puffy paint, Beads in a bottle, and Tulip Slick Paints)
Trim the felt sheets into “tie” shapes. Let the kids pick the colors. This is a great craft for any felt scraps that you have laying around. We like stiff felt for this project. The version that is self adhesive really makes this project simple.
Use a variety of 3 dimensional fabric paints to decorate your ties. Set aside to dry. This is where you really get the kids involved. Let them decorate the ties in any way they choose.
Your ties will probably need to dry overnight. Then you will need to add to your mason jars. I used the adhesive on the back of the felt sheets. You can also use glue to adhere.
Wrap these Father’s Day mason jars up and give to Dad this year. They will look great on his desk to hold pens, pencils, and more.
Add these Father’s Day mason jars to your must make list this year. Pick up your supplies and let the kids get to work adding their own special touch to this fun craft idea.
