This is easily one of my all-time favorite fall projects. I’m afraid that if I don’t use restraint than my entire house will be covered in these easy spray painted mason jars. This project is so easy that anyone can do it and the great thing is that it uses your recycled glass mason jars. So now you have a reason to serve your kids spaghetti for every meal because you’re going to need the glass jar to make these amazing Mason Jar Candle Votives this fall. It’s a cute and easy mason jar craft.**This is one of the older crafts on this site BUT it’s still one of my favorites. Each year I look forward to pulling these out and either dropping a battery operated tea light inside or filling them with cinnamon sticks. I hope you love and enjoy this super simple fall craft idea! **
First, you simply need to gather your glass jars, spray paint and foam letter stickers. You could probably use any alphabet stickers but the foam gives you something to grab onto when it’s time to peel the stickers off. This craft takes about 10 minutes from start to finish and that is not a lie.
To get started you simply put the stickers on the jars. If they’re uneven or you don’t like how they are placed, they peel off and can be restuck pretty easily.
Next, you quickly give each jar two light coats of spray paint. Since I was working on a warmer day (it’s Houston) that had no humidity (shocking for Houston) than the paint was dry to the touch almost immediately.
Then all you do is peel off the stickers. Yes. That’s as hard as it gets.
Some of the stickers left a little residue that was easy to scrape off with my fingernails but it didn’t take any time at all.
You’re going to be left with this cute fall mason jar craft that makes a great mantle decoration, tablescape for Thanksgiving dinner or ever a cute teacher’s gift. Place a candle inside and the light will be simply amazing as it dances through the unpainted glass.
You could really use this same technique on so many things. Place a poem about fall on a large vase and do this or put your kids names on jars to put their toothbrushes into beside their sinks. It’s just a simple and fun project that you can transform 1,000 different ways.
