Mason Jar Sign Supplies
- Pallet wood sign
- Decoart Outdoor Living Paint (I used Copper and Sand)
- Scroll saw (my favorite is the Rockwell Blade Runner)
- Jar silhouette template (click here to print)
- Leaf template (click here to download and print)
- Paint brushes
- Burlap ribbon
- Burlap flower
- Hot glue and glue gun
Start by printing the jar silhouette printable and transferring it to the top of your pallet sign. Line up the top and side and then trace with a pencil. Repeat on both sides.
Use a scroll saw to cut around your lines. Be sure to be cautious of staples holding this sign together. Remove before cutting if they are in your cutting area. Use a sander to clean up your cuts.
I also rounded the edges of the other end. I did not use a template for these cuts but rather free handed the design. Add two coats of a good quality outdoor paint to the entire sign. I used a sand color from Americana Outdoor Living. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
Print the leaf template. Lay on top of the painted sign in the place where you would like it to be. Trace with a pen while pushing down hard.
You will be left with an indentation where your design should be.
Fill in your design with a copper colored paint. It took me about four coats to get proper coverage in this area. Again use a good quality outdoor paint and allow to dry in between coats.
I also added the copper paint in the “lid” area. After all the paint was dry, I tied on some burlap ribbon around the jar “neck”.
I also added a burlap flower with some hot glue to finish off my mason jar sign. Add this fall decor to your front porch for a touch of autumn.
Grab your supplies and make your own mason jar sign today. What will you add to the wood jar? It is so easy to make that you can add one for every season to your decor.
