Christmas Mason Jar Vase

This is an easy Christmas craft that's easily completed in an hour.  The hardest part is picking an image for the front!  I used a vintage Crown jar, but you could use any jar you have kicking around. 

I painted my jar with Cece Caldwell's chalk and clay paint and distressed it here and there.  Then I printed off my image and glued it to the front.  I applied diamond dust over the picture and silver glitter around the edges.  I recommend glittering after you glue the picture on... it's just easier that way because you don't have to worry about knocking off the glitter. 

As a finishing touch I tied some jute and baker's twine around the top rim. 

I'm using it as a holder for some Christmas greenery, but it would look great with a votive candle lit inside, too!

  1. Very sweet idea! Love the glitter and image!


  2. This is a great idea, and I love the glitter! I tried to also comment about your cupboard makeover, but something wasn't working. In any event, I love it and the vintage wallpaper you used.
