Since I love to craft and with 4th of July approaching I thought a 4th of July craft was in order. It’s the perfect time to get all Patriotic and have some fun with stars. Plus making some fun Patriotic decorations for your home is always a bonus. No one else will have them… Unless they make them too. =P With that being said, I introduce you to our new Thursday Craft, DIY Patriotic Mason Jars.

Since 4th of July is about 2 weeks away, I wanted to share a craft that was Patriotic. It can be so much fun to make your own holiday decorations. Not many other folks would have them unless they are crafty like you. I thought the Patriotic Mason Jars would just be sun and I love how they turned out. They have a bit of a rustic look to them and I am all about the rustic/county look!

Well let’s get this Patriotic party started!!

Step 01: Make sure your jars are clean. Once they are clean and dried begin applying small star stickers. We will peel these off later in the craft. By doing this we will create small empty space to allow light to peek through. You should be able to find star stickers in any scrap section of a craft store or Amazon. I used my Cricut Explore Air to create my stars.

Step 02: This is where the fun begins. Paint all 3 of your Mason Jars with the Waverly Inspirations Chalk Paint in White. Don’t forget the rim. =) I decided to go around rather then up and down. But remember this is your craft. Feel free to paint how you feel. Once you are done, let them dry.

It says on the package to wait about 2 hours before applying a second coat. I’m sorry, I waited all of 10/15 mins before moving on to step 3. Haha I have no patience.

Step 03: Pick out which Mason Jar you would like to be your blue jar. This Jar will have larger Start stickers applied on top of the White Chalk paint. Once you know which Jar you want to use, apply your larger stars how you see fit. As I said before, you should be able to find Star stickers in a scrapbooking section or Amazon. I made mine with the Cricut Explore Air.

Step 05: With your two other jars you want to use the painters tape to create stripes. Just like the stripes on the flag. This can be a bit tricky but you can do it! Remember this is for fun and it doesn’t have to be perfect! Mine sure aren’t! =P

Step 06: And let the painting begin! Use your Crisom Paint for this part. This will create this Red and White strips we need for the flag. Let this set for about 15/20 mins before moving onto Step 7.

Step 07: Once you lets your jars sit to dry you can begin peeling off the tape and stickers. If all goes well you should have something like this. Add your tea lights to your jars and now you have your own Patriotic Mason Jars.

This is such a simple and fun craft. It’s a very inexpensive craft and you can create multiples of these for around your home if you’d like. Your company will be loving your rustic looking Patriotic Mason Jars and wanting to know where to purchase. I know I would want to buy these if I saw them in someones home.

Now you can brag… Oh, I made them! Yep! I did it!!! Hehehe =P

Hope you all loved this Patriotic Mason Jar craft like I did! =D
