Glass Jar Makeover

Organize your supplies with jars and your favorite coloring book pages!
I used copies of my favorite coloring book pages instead of the actual page. I also used my home copy machine and it worked just fine.
Watch how easy it is here. There are a few little tips included that eliminate bubbles and allow for the tapered edges of the jars. If the video doesn't play, copy and paste this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgwvsYfGoM4
I like to edge my projects with a Krylon Paint marker and my favorite brand of decoupage medium is from Americana. It doesn't get sticky when there is moisture in the air like other brands.

Suggested materials:

  • Americana Decoupage in Matte  (Amazon.com)
  • Krylon Paint Marker in black  (Amazon.com)

    I would love to give these to my daughters and granddaughters for Christmas with colored pens in them so they could all sit together and color them. Would I have to buy special type of pens and what would we need to seal the colors?

      Not sure you can color as the paper is covered with Americana. but watch the video, he gives instructions on how to color before you stick the paper on the jars.
