I have an adorable project for you today y’all. My metallic mason jar art uses thin sheet metal that can be cut into shapes and embossed. Such a cute way to show your love for mason jars. I received the supplies for this project from an event I went to at CHA and the project itself is entered into a contest. Otherwise the project and opinions on this post are my own.
- OlyFun in gray and white
- White ric rac
- M-D Hobby & Craft Brass Sheet
- M-D Hobby & Craft Chicken Wire
- Turbo “Tacky” Glue
- M-D Hobby & Craft Hobby Shears
- M-D Hobby & Craft Metal Working Gloves
- Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die – Canning Jars
- Sizzix Big Shot Machine
- Sizzix Kitchen Labels Framelits Dies
- Sizzix ScoreBoards Cupcake Stand & Pennant
- Sizzix Embossing Folders
- Liquid Nails All Purpose Adhesive
Start by adding gray OlyFun and chicken wire to your frame. I used two sheets of OlyFun because it is slightly see through. Now lets make the elements that go in the frame. The roll of metal cuts perfectly with the large Sizzix dies. I cut a few mason jars. Then ran them through the Sizzix with the embossing folder. Next up are some jar labels. I cut the OlyFun with the kitchen label dies. I used Tacky Glue to adhere the label plus a jar “topper” and ric rac to the metal jars. Now it is time to make a banner. Cut the banner pieces with the cupcake stand die. It is important to note to wear the protective gloves when handling this metal as the edges will be sharp. Fold those banner pieces over a straight edge and right over a long piece of ric rac. Use the Liquid Nails to glue everything down into place on top of the chicken wire. Allow to dry completely and this one is ready to hang in any room of your home. This gorgeous metallic mason jar art is the perfect way to celebrate your love of the classic container in a new and exciting way!
