I have a really easy little project for those of you that love Mason Jars as much as I do.
This is such a quick little way to add a special touch to a plain mason jar so it makes a perfect homemade gift idea.
You can fill your jar with a homemade candle, sugar scrubs, bath salts, cookies or just a simple flower arrangement like I did.
I did use my Silhouette cutting machine to create the monogram but if you don’t have a Silhouette machine, not to worry! I have a few other ideas to get the same look.
So I started with a large Mason Jar- this is the brand new spring green color .
Next I cut a large K for the jar- this was a very, very last minute teacher birthday gift. I used double sided adhesive for the Silhouette because I wanted to use a glittery finish for the monogram.
Once the K was cut, I just adhered it to the jar and used gold glitter to coat the K.
I added a bit of twine and some tulips and done! A pretty little flower arrangement for less then $10 ($1.50 for the mason jar and $7 for the flowers.)
Once the flowers die, she can use the jar for all sorts of things. I think it would be pretty to hold pens and pencils on a desk.
If the green color is not your favorite, you can always paint your jar or tint it so that it is the perfect color for your needs.
This entire project took me about 20 minutes from start to finish. If you do not have a Silhouette machine another idea would be to hit the scrap booking section of your local craft store. They often have letters in various colors and finishes to choose from.
You could also buy a stencil from the craft store and just paint on the monogram with the paint color of your choice.
That is beautiful with the flowers in it. Teachers tend to accumulate a lot of “stuff”. I’m sure any teacher would appreciate this being both pretty and practical. I haven’t seen those green mason jars yet. Green is my color though so I’m going to have to be on the lookout!
Wow! This is perfect center pieces for my Easter dinner im having for my family! You rock!
Oh thank you Dodi. My photos don’t show how pretty that gold glitter really is in person :).
Thank you for another great inspiration! I was looking for a nice gift that does not end up being clutters to my daughters’ teachers. Now I’m thinking where I should put a lid elegantly, so that they can reuse the jar as a jar!
I really love this!! I ‘m definitelly pinning it. I’m also really happy I found your blog, At last a person talking to real people with real budgets!
