Decoupaging Glass Containers For Other Uses

DIY: Découpaging Darling Jars

Every time I go to an art museum, I leave wanting to stop by the paint shop for a new canvas of my own. I've tried it once and I was no closer to being the next Monet than I was at birth. But crafty boutiques? They have a little more to offer someone of my artistic level.

I recently spotted a bevvy of old glass jars that had been découpaged with fabulous fabrics. A bit pricier than I expected, I thought I'd try to do it myself. I've dealt with paper projects before, but this was my first try with new textiles. Lucky for me (and potentially you!) it was a shockingly easy project that cost very little and added personality to my guest bathroom. Find out how to create these little jars on your own!

Supplies needed:

  • Empty jars
  • Fabric
  • Mod Podge (available at most craft stores)
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrushes (sponge preferred)
  • Ruler or straight edge

Steps:

  1. Take your empty jars and clean them thoroughly inside and out.
  2. Dry the jars.
  3. Cut your fabric pieces to fit the jar's flat space.
  4. Using a sponge brush, "paint" on a good (not too thin or thick) layer of Mod Podge.
  5. Quickly apply the fabric to the wet area.
  6. Allow the first layer of Mod Podge and fabric to dry — about 15 minutes.
  7. Apply another coat of Mod Podge on top of the fabric and allow it to dry.
  8. Tie a ribbon around the top!

Add some flowers, pencils, knitting needles, or candles to the cute cylinders. If you need ideas, check out my 10 charming uses for empty jars!
