Vintage Leaves, a Mason Jar, and PPA 266

PPA 266

I saw these mason jar candle holders on Pinterest and wanted to try my hand at them.  The Pals Paper Arts color challenge were the exact colors I had in mind for this project!  Of course, you can make these jars for any holiday just using a different shaped stencil.

PPA 266


Here is my project recipe:

Stamp Set – Vintage Leaves, Truly Grateful
Cardstock – Delightul Dijon, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Ink – CajunCraze, Delightful Dijon, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Accessories – Leaflets Framelits,  Tags & Labels Framelits, Big Shot, Linen Thread, Stampin’ Dimensionals,  (non-Stampin’ Up! supplies: quart canning jar, chalk craft paint and paint brush)

For my jar, I used the Leaflets Framelits Dies to make the stencil.  I had some sheets of washi tape so my stencil stuck to the jar but you can apply any paper stencil with temporary adhesive, too.   The jar was painted with the chalk paint and then the stencil was removed and the decorations attached.

My jar is filled with popcorn but you can add dried beans, rice, etc.

I have had some interest in doing these at a class.  If you want to attend a class and make a jar like this, please leave a comment below and let me know if a weeknight or weekend class would work better for you.
