After deciding on which word or lettering you’d like to display on your jars, select that number of mason jars to paint. With the word ‘Family’, there were six jars to paint.
Next, pick your favorite Metallic Paint colors and brush on 2 – 3 coats, letting each layer dry completely. Debbie used Sapphire Metallic Paint for the “F”, Copper Metallic Paint for the “A”, Teal Metallic Paint for the “M”, Olympic Gold for the “I”, Antique Copper for the “L”, and Hunter Green Metallic Paint for the “Y”.

As the Metallic Paint coats dry, create a page of letters to attach to the front of your mason jars. Debbie used the CopperPlate Bold at 151 and printed the letters from a Cricut. You can also purchase ready-made letters from your local craft store!

By using a piece of double stick tape, you can quickly adhere a letter to each jar. Feel free to add pretty flowers or other decorations to taste. We’re sure you’ll love the look once they’re lined up on a mantle or shelf in your home!
