What You Will Need

  • Wide mouth quart mason jar this is the version I used and it is plain on the back with no embossing
  • White spray paint
  • Elmer's Painters Paint Marker in Gold (fine tip)
  • Hazel and Ruby Word Stencils
  • Hazel and Ruby Letter Stencils
  • Metallic gold cord


  • Be sure to wash the 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. You can also make these stencils from vinyl and your Cricut machine.
  • Press down on stencils to make sure they have 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 the peel and stick stencils.  Remove carefully and use a craft knife to cut if the 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!
