What You Will Need


  • Clean your jars and remove all labels.
  • Print out some Easter silhouettes from the web.
  • Tape a silhouette to the inside of your jar.
  • Trace around the image on the outside of your jar with hot glue then fill it in.
  • Allow to dry completely. NOTE: Set up a place where you can put your jar to dry upside down after these next steps — you will thank me later!
  • Apply decoupage to about half of the jar then roll onto a strip of tissue paper.
  • Decoupage the remaining half and cover the jar complete including the bottom and rim. Trim away excess tissue paper.
  • Apply decoupage to the outside of the jar as well. Press down well with your brush on the hot glue emboss area to get a great image.
  • Set aside and allow to dry. (This is where your set up of getting the jar to dry upside down really comes in handy.)
  • After the jar is completely dry, use ink to make the embossed area really stand out.
  • Tie on a ribbon.
  • Add a candle and you are ready to display your Easter jars.
