I am very excited to share a DIY Mason Jar craft with you. This DIY is dedicated to 2 fabulous ladies - Laura Kelly Walters of Laura Kelly Designs and Angie of The Country Chic Cottage as they are sponsoring this fun SNAP Crafts with Jars Contest.
My DIY is a Mason Jar Pencil Cup Holder - this craft is great because it's lovely and functional - and you can use scraps to make it. You can make this as a gift or for your craft room or office!
Here is my supplies list:
- Mason jar
- Paper flowers
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Pink Doily*
- Stamp - I used some inspiring and motivating sentiments
- Colorbox Archival Dye Ink in Wicked Black
*The pink doilies are so cute and I got these from the Blitsy.com booth at SNAP! They are by DoodleBug Design and come in a pack of 75, I love pink so when they said I could pick something from their booth I was excited to find these cute doilies.
**The the kraft color tag was made with a Sizzix die cut (Tags, Scallop 2).
Here are the steps to make this Mason Jar Pencil Cup Holder:
Step 1: GATHER SOME SCRAPS: I suggest that you find some fun embellishments to use for your project. I started out with my pink doily, ribbons and flowers.
Step 2: GLUE: Get your glue gun ready to go and you can use the hot glue to adhere the doily to the jar, I applied glue in 2 spots and then placed the doily on top.
Step 3: RIBBONS & FLOWERS: I then added my ribbons and flowers, be careful to tie the ribbons on the back side of the jar. For the white pom pom I used hot glue rather than a knot. For the flowers, you can slide them in behind the ribbons and do your best to not tear the doily.
Step 4: TWINE & TAGS: You can stamp your tags and then use twine to wrap around the top of the mason jar. My tags are meant to be inspiring - I plan to give this craft project as a gift to a friend and I want it to make her happy when she reads the stamps each day! We can always use a happy thought and motivation throughout our days - right?
I hope you like this quick DIY Mason Jar Craft. Let me know what you think in the comment - would you make this for yourself or as a gift?
