Tips for Making a DIY Mason Jar

A few notes about choosing the best mason jar and materials for your DIY mason jar projects. I like to find a mason jar that is smooth on one side so that I don’t have to deal with the bumpy glass. And if you can’t find a “mason jar”, that’s okay. You don’t actually need a mason jar to do this project; you could use almost any glass jar. Extra fine glitter works best for this project with the finer script text. If you don’t have a machine to cut vinyl, purchase vinyl letters and use the backing as your stencil.

How to Make a DIY Mason Jar with Glitter:

Wash and dry your jar to remove all oils. Try not to handle your jar too much in order to prevent the oils from transferring to the jar from your hands.

Cut your vinyl with a cutting machine. Remove the text to create a stencil outline.

Firmly press transfer paper onto the stencil. Remove the vinyl backing and place the stencil onto your jar. Press firmly to adhere and remove the transfer paper.

I wanted the text to blend in with the glitter, so I cut the bottom of the stencil with a utility knife and removed the stencil.

Use a paint brush to apply an even coat of glue to the jar.

Don’t use too much glue that it begins to run. Sprinkle with glitter and shake off excess.

Repeat until you have the entire jar covered in glue and glitter.

When dry, remove the painter’s tape.

Gently remove the stencil. To remove the center stencil pieces, use your utility knife to puncture the vinyl and lift it away from the surface. Do this gently and slowly to ensure even removal.

Once all the stencil is removed, place the rim on your jar and fill with your favorite items.
