Creating fall mason jar crafts is a fun and rewarding activity that allows you to showcase your creativity and add a personal touch to your home decor. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily make your own beautiful fall-themed mason jars.
Read on to discover how to easily create stunning harvest decor using fall mason jar crafts: gather your materials, prepare the mason jars, cut the burlap squares, apply Mod Podge to the mason jars, clean up excess Mod Podge, apply fall stencils, and add embellishments before displaying and enjoying your work.
1. Gather your materials
- Mason jars
- Brown burlap
- Mod Podge
- Peel-and-stick fall stencils
- Embellishments (twine or ribbon)
- Damp cloth
2. Prepare the mason jars
First, ensure that your mason jars are clean and dry. Remove any labels or stickers to create a smooth surface for your craft.
3. Cut the burlap squares
Next, measure the sections of the mason jar where you want to place the burlap. Cut your brown burlap into squares that fit the measured sections.
4. Apply Mod Podge to the mason jars
Once your burlap squares are cut, paint a thin layer of Mod Podge on the mason jar section where you want to place the burlap. Position the burlap square over the Mod Podge, smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Afterward, paint another layer of Mod Podge over the burlap to seal it in place.
5. Clean up excess Mod Podge
If you notice any excess Mod Podge around the burlap, use a damp cloth to gently wipe it away. Allow the mason jar to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
6. Apply fall stencils
After the mason jar is dry, choose your favorite peel-and-stick fall stencils. Apply the stencils to the dried burlap sections, pressing firmly to ensure proper adhesion. Alternatively, you can make your own fall stencils and apply them with acrylic paint, whether you prefer a paintbrush or spray paint.
7. Add embellishments
Now, it’s time to add some embellishments. Tie twine or ribbon around the neck of the mason jar, creating a bow or knot for added visual interest. If desired, you can also add more embellishments, such as beads or charms.
8. Display and enjoy your fall mason jar crafts
Decoratively arrange your completed mason jars, incorporating them into your fall home decor. You can also gift them to friends and family as a unique, handmade present that will surely be cherished.
