All of my canning is done for the year and I still have an abundant supply of Mason and Kerr jars sitting on my shelves. As I was putting them in storage I decided to keep a couple of them out and try my hand at some kind of a Mason Jar Craft.
A couple of weeks ago I decided enough was enough, I want my craft room! Before I could even begin to think about moving in, a whole host of things have to happen first, so I began making a list. Half way through the list, no kidding, half way through, my plan to move into the craft room got thwarted. I’d like to tell you why, but it’s hush, hush right now. Needless to say my craft room is on the back burner for awhile. Frustrating!!!!!
- Canning Jar
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Multi-Surface Acrylic Craft Paint
- Waxed Paper
- White Spray Paint
- Hot Glue & Gun
- Exacto knife
Clean off any paint that may have dried on the rim of the jar with a Exacto knife.
In a well ventilated area, spray the inside of the jar with white spray paint. Allow the paint to dry for 2-4 hours. Apply a second coat if needed. Again clean the rim of the jar if there is any over spray.
Admire how pretty they look!
Gather the jar rings, twine, glue gun and glue sticks.
Continue working your way around the ring, working in small sections.
Attach the completed rings to the jars and wah-lah, you’re done.
I love all of the crafty things that you can do with canning jars. I have some antique ones that need to be spruced up, but I can’t bring myself to do it.,YET. What kind of crafty things have you tried using Mason Jars?
