What You Will Need

  • Printable fairy garden coloring page by Jen Goode
  • Coloring supplies
  • Quart size Mason Jar
  • Brown craft Paint optional
  • Outdoor Mod Podge
  • Paint brushes
  • Small plants and flowers and potting soil if needed
  • Scissors


  • Paint the mason jar and allow to dry. I covered my jar with just a single coat of paint because I knew I would be filling the jar with planting soil. You can apply as many coats and colors of paint as you’d like.
  • Print and color the coloring page however you'd like. Cut out the pieces you'd like to use for you fairy house. I printed the art at 50% to shrink it to fit this specific jar project. You can resize the page to fit whatever size project you are working on.
  • Decoupage the coloring page art to the jar. Using a paint brush, apply Mod Podge to the jar where you'd like to place your colored cut outs. The Mod Podge dries pretty quickly, so only apply in the area you are working for each individual piece. Place the paper on the wet Mod Podge, press into place and then cover with additional Mod Podge. Repeat for each piece you'd like to add to your jar.
  • If you have additional accessories you'd like to include on your fairy house, the Mod Podge should adhere them. I wrapped twine around the top of my jar and added some fun little curling pieces that hang down the jar. I used Mod Podge to adhere the twine both at the top and to keep the little curls in place.
  • If you'd like, apply additional Mod Podge to the jar to even the shine around the jar. The Mod Podge can be a bit shinier than the paint, so you can use the Mod Podge as a sealer to add that extra finished look. This will also help weather proof the art a bit for outside use.
  • Allow everything to dry.
  • Add soil and the small plants to your jar to finish the look of your fairy house. You can also use this little jar fairy house as a vase for flowers that you can change as the seasons change.
