Like many of you, I am a huge fan of mason jar crafts. I still use my Whimsical Luminaries on my porch in the summertime. This post is all about fall. Fall decorating doesn’t have to be over the top or expensive. A few mason jars, some paint, and pretty fall flowers are all you will need to make your space come alive. Fortunately, it is easier than you might think. Here is how we did it.
- Mason Jar – I picked one with a smooth surface
- Deco Art Chalk Paint
- Vinyl Decal – I cut mine using my Cricut Explore Air 2
- White Spray Paint
- Orange Acrylic Paint – one light orange one dark orange
- Jute or Twine
- Paint Brushes
Paint your mason jar with 1 – 2 coats of chalk paint. Let it dry completely
Create, weed, and adhere your vinyl stencil to the mason jar. I used 631 vinyl for my decal. The pumpkin was a free SVG I found on my favorite SVG site Love SVG.
Cover the entire mason jar with 2 – 3 coats of white paint. If your chalk paint is a dark color like mine, you will need multiple coats of spray paint to cover it up.
With the lighter orange color, paint vertical stripes evenly spaced around your mason jar. Don’t take too much time making them perfect, this adds to the rustic, whimsy feel of fall.
Next paint horizontal stripes evenly spaced around the mason jar with the same light orange paint. Try to keep your lines evenly spaced or you will end up giving the bottom a solid coat of orange paint as I have above. My stripes got a little bit too crooked for even the rustic look.
Using the darker orange paint, paint squares where the two lines meet as shown above.
Using a thin line brush, add a thin stripe of the darker orange between each line going both horizontal and vertical.
Once your paint is completely dry, peel away the vinyl decal. Touch up any paint that needs it, or outline the entire design with a contrasting color. Add some jute around the rim with a simple bow to complete the look.
I really enjoyed painting this jar. Even though it may not be perfect, I love the way it came out. This will look great right in the center of the table right through the Thanksgiving holiday. The entire process took less than an afternoon to do, which includes the wait time for the spray paint to dry.
