I actually created a super short 6 second video to show you the process below. I have written instructions below the video in case you can’t follow along. But I am telling y’all this is one easy mason jar craft!
Here are the step by step written instructions just in case you need them:
- Be sure to wash mason jar well before beginning. I actually recommend wiping down with rubbing alcohol.
- Apply peel and stick stencils onto your jar to spell out the desired quote. I used “be thank FULL” on my jar. The top two lines are from the words stencil pack. I used the letter package to make the “full”. Apply to the side that has no embossing.
- Press down on stencils to make sure they are adhered well. I personally love the peel and stick stencils but you can also try cutting out vinyl or contact paper in the letters and words that you need.
- Spray entire jar with white spray paint until completely covered.
- Allow to dry and remove peel and stick stencils. Remove carefully and use a craft knife to cut if paint is lifting.
- Trace each letter with the Elmer’s Painters Paint Marker in Gold. This is why the fine tip version is important. Allow to dry.
- Wrap the top of the jar with the hemp cording and tie.
- Add to your Thanksgiving decor this fall!
I love that you can see through the letters into the jar! This Thanksgiving mason jar craft is perfect for your home. Use this same technique with other quotes to make quote mason jars for every season.
