I’m making patriotic mason jars since it’s our turn to host the holiday barbeque this year. I’m excited! Those of you who know me know I LOVE A PARTY! I love hosting, preparing, creating…basically everything to do with a gathering.
I realized I weeded out a little too well when I couldnt find ANY patriotic party decorations. Not a red napkin, blue plate or anything patriotic that I could even begin to fake it with! I had no choice….
I rolled up my sleeves and prettied up my mason jars into festive red white and blue patriotic themed decor.
- Mason Jars
- Craft paint
- Painters tape
- Star shape to trace or marker to draw stars
Red and white striped mason jar- Paint the outside of 1 jar all white. When paint is dry, tape rings around the jar. paint the red stripes. Remove the painters tape while your red paint is still wet.
Blue stars mason jar – Paint the outside of the jar all blue. To make the stars, draw, stamp or trace them onto the jar in random spots.
Red white and blue mason jar- Tape off a 1 inch row at the top and bottom of the jar. Paint everything white. When dry, tape the top and bottom edges of the white band and paint the top and bottom of the jar red. Trace or draw stars onto the white center section. Tape off the top and bottom of the center section and paint the blue band in the middle.
I thought they looked better a little distressed. So I gave them a quick rub with coarse sandpaper.
These patriotic mason jars can be used in so many ways. In a row on a table as a centerpiece, as plastic silverware holders or alone with a bouquet of flowers.
Where would you use patriotic mason jars?
