I know there are more than 1001 ways to decorate a mason jar or bottle and you may be among those that are a bit overwhelmed with seeing lots of crafty mason jars (me included). I believe mason jars have moved from being "trendy" to a status of being "classic" in the crafting world. So yes, I'm here to say, mason jars are here to stay. (Was that a rhyme?) Anyway, I have tried to leave them alone . . . except the time I made decorative tops here. I cannot resist any longer! So here I am showing you how I decorated a mason jar and wine bottle for the holidays and or winter. The snow is actually what did it for me!
- Mason Jar/Wine bottle
- White chalk paint
- Christmas/holiday napkins
- Mod podge
- Paint brush
- Plastic wrap
- Snow-Tex (DecorArt)
- White glitter
- Decorative trim
After the paint dried, the printed napkins were separated from their white backings and mod podge was brushed on the bottles.
The napkins were placed on top of the decoupage and smooth out and around using plastic wrap (see tutorial). . .
and allowed to dry.
Next, Snow-Tex was applied using a plastic knife to the tops and bottoms.
Snow-Tex is amazing!
It creates a realistic dimensional snow-like effect and dries permanently hard.
For a snow-glistening effect, white glitter was sprinkled over the Snow-Tex while wet.
The imprint from the mason jar adds dimension to the image.
Decorative stems were added to complete the look.
A view of the back.
These would be great to give as gifts or add to your holiday décor!
Take a little time to enjoy
Happy Holiday Crafting!
