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.
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!
