Mason Jar Holders

Another fun project I put together were some painted mason jars. These are great to store pencils, crayons, or markers in to pull out at homework time or would even make a great teachers gift. I made three different school related designs. I will say this was my first time painting glass with acrylic paint. I was an eager beaver and just jumped right in and started painting but the paint kept peeling off when I would add another coat. I decided to start over and use a primer from the beginning so I highly recommend this as it made a world of difference and gave the paint something to grab onto. Below is what you’ll need for each jar.

Mason Jar Holders


  • 1.Mason jar
  • 2.E6000 glue
  • 3.Scissors
  • 4.Green scrap paper
  • 5.Pencil
  • 6.Small wooden dowel
  • 7.Green spray paint
  • 8.Red & brown acrylic paint
  • 1.Mason jar

  • 5.Scissors

  • 7.Silver ribbon
  • 1.Mason jar
  • 2.Chalkboard paint
  • 3.Foam brush
  • 4.Ribbon


  1. Prime your jars
  2. Once primer is dry apply your first coat of paint. Allow 1 hour to dry completely in between coats. I ended up doing two coats of paint on each.
  3. Draw two leaf shapes onto your scrap paper and cut out.
  4. Spray paint one of your lids green and one of them pink.
  5. Paint the wooden dowel brown.
  6. Let everything dry completely then glue your leaf shapes onto the bottom of the wooden dowel. Glue the dowel onto the top of the green lid using the E6000 glue.
  7. Cut your silver ribbon to size and wrap around the top of your mason jar gluing in place with your hot glue gun.
  8. After the chalkboard paint is dry, take a stick of chalk and rub it all over then wipe off





About Jamie

Hi! My name is Jamie with Five Whimsy Lane and I like to make things pretty. Parties especially. Glitter enthusiast...lover of all things chocolate & a partynista. Is that a word? Wifey to one fabulous husband and mother to 3 amazing children, Caleb, Leilani & Olivia who are my main inspiration. What more could a girl ask for? When I'm not scouring Pinterest for hours (I'm working honey, I promise) you can find me digging in my fairy garden, dancing with the kids or cleaning my Dyson. Who wants a dirty vacuum? My love for parties began over 10 years ago when I was planning my sons 1st birthday. I realized I had a huge passion for details (some might call it an obsession). After many years and wonderful birthday memories later Sweet Jelly Parties was born. Children's events and baby showers are our specialty but I'm a lover of all reasons to celebrate. Anniversaries, holidays, graduations, it's a Friday so let's throw a party.....You name it, I'll glitter it. Every once in a while though I like to trade in my juice box for a glass of wine which is why I'm also a Certified Wedding Planner.
