I am kicking off summer in jars week with some fun jar decorations for summer. This is a quick and easy craft that would look great in the center of your table for a 4th of July party or even on your mantel for the entire summer season. You will want to be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post and see the other summer jar crafts from our blog partners for this series. This one was previously posted on Crafts Unleashed where I am a paid blog contributor.
Supplies needed to make jar decorations:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore but a portion of your purchase will go to support this site.
- Red Mason Jar
- Metal Stars (one package per mason jar)
- White Paint
- Blue Paint
- Metal Hole Punch (I use the Crop-a-dile)
- Paint Brushes
I actually made a really quick video to show you just how to make this craft idea. Just watch below!
- Paint both sides of the stars with craft paint. Half should be white while half should be blue. Paint one side, allow to dry, then paint the other side. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
- Punch a hole in each star with a metal hole punch.
- Use twine to add them to the jar in random locations.
- That is it! You have jar decorations for your summer decorating!
