Mason Jar Love!

I shared this at One Artsy Mama’s Fun in the Sun Summer Series a few weeks back, so in case you didn’t catch it there, here it is!

Here’s a super easy tutorial on how to make fabric lined mason jars for any summer get together, and beyond!

It’s so simple!  Here’s what you’ll need:

Mason Jar
Mod Podge (or craft glue)
Foam brush (or any small brush)
Fabric scraps
Plastic spoon
Jute twine (optional)
Spray Paint (optional)


I put some of the Mod Podge in a plastic cup and using the brush I spread it over a section of the inside of a mason jar. Then I pressed the fabric scraps in place on to the Mod Podge, smoothing it out with the plastic spoon, all the way around the jar.

I let the fabric dry completely, and in the meantime I took the lids outside and painted them a fun color to match the fabric, in this case one was white and one was yellow.  I had added the twine around the neck to give it a rustic touch.

That’s it!  How cute do they look holding utensils and straws?

Another fun use is as a votive holder with an electric tea light (fabric is flammable!) for a pretty outdoor centerpiece, or just to add a special touch to the summer night!

The best part of this project is that these can be used for indoor events later in the year, or even just around the house!  I plan on using one in my kid’s playroom to hold their colored pencils, and one in my master bathroom!  


So easy right?!  Grab your mason jars and get to Mod Podge-ing!  

Have a fun summer!
