Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: DIY Christmas Mason Jar

DIY Christmas Mason Jar

7:30 AM

This week I have a Christmas special going on.  Most of my posts will be tutorials for DIY Christmas decor.  The first one will be a DIY Mason Jar.  Most of my supplies are from Michael's or a few things are from Costco and my mom's crafting closet.  My mom used to make a lot of arts and crafts so I guess you can say I get it from my mama!



All surface paint found at Michael's.


Paintbrushes from Michael's.


I love Mason Jars, I just can't help it.


You have to paint a couple of coats of paint on the jar.  It's just like when you paint your nails, you paint a coat, let it dry, and repeat.


This ribbon is from Costco.  It's the ribbon with the wire in it which I love because you can easily make it take any shape.


This I found in my mom's room.  I can't remember if she used it for a Christmas tree in the past or for something else.  I decided to put it around the jar.  I decided to sew it instead of tying it because it looks neater and it's longer.  



From Michael's.


Also from Michael's.


Then just glue the berries on with a hot glue gun.


And voila you are done.  In total this took me about two-three days.  The most amount of time was spent on painting the jar and letting it dry.  I'm sure it's easier to spray paint it, but I wanted it to last longer so I painted it.  Stay tuned for more DIY tutorials this week leading up to Christmas!

    1. You're welcome :) I'm actually planning on making it one of the center pieces with either a candle or just by itself or maybe some pine tree branches in it.
