What You Will Need


  • Clean your jar well with rubbing alcohol and allow it to dry.
  • Paint the outside of the jar with three coats of Americana Chalky finish paint in your choice of color.
  • Allow the jar to dry completely in between coats and before continuing on to the next step.
  • To get the marbling effect, fill a container with water and spray the shimmer metallic spray paint into the water.
  • Carefully, dip the jar into the water to catch the shimmer paint onto the jar. You don’t need to submerge the jar completely, but just enough to get the desired look.
  • Then, place the jar on scrap cardboard and allow it to dry completely. No need to wipe off excess water. It dried super fast!
  • Add a burlap ribbon around the top and hot glue a pine cone to the side of the jar, if desired.
  • Add floral arrangements or greenery and display.
