DIY Mason Jar Project.
Create romantic mason jars for someone you love!
For less than $15 and 20-mins of spare time, you can have something special he or she will love – because nothing beats a romantic DIY project!
Step 1 : Here are the supplies you’ll need to get started
1.) Red spray paint, color of your choice (ideally red or pink)
2.) A decorative ribbon w/ 12-inches of yarn
3.) Painters’ tape
4.) Permanent marker
5.) 1-2 glass mason jars
6.) Box cutter for precision cutting
7.) String lights, preferably 50 LED (or whatever fits the size of the mason jar)
Step 2 : Prep the mason jar for design
Stick on a few stripes of painter’s tape on one side of the jar. Carefully draw any size heart on the painters’ tape using the marker.
Step 3 : Heart shaped mason jar
With a box cutter or precision knife, cut along the heart you drew on the tape.
Once ready, carefully peel the tape around the heart – painters’ tape usually won’t rip, but it is possible because of the paint.
Step 4 : Painting the jar
Coat the entire jar with spray paint.
You’ll need to wait 45-60 mins for the paint to dry – once ready, carefully peel off the taped heart.
Step 5 : Yarn and ribbon add-on (optional)
With the decorative ribbon or yarn that you’ve picked out, tie a bow around the top of the jar. It’s a nice way to add more texture to your project
Step 6 : LED Lighting or Bulbs
Add in the wire lighting – you can also choose a small, flameless candle or smart light bulb.
Congratulations! You’re ready to share with a loved one!
It looks great on a window sill or on a wood dresser.
And even if it doesn’t turn out exactly how you want, whoever you give it to will appreciate the effort!
