Mason jars are fun for decorating at any time of the year and are so on-trend. I love the Summer flair that this project has, but the ribbon and flowers could easily be changed out for the seasons!

Here’s how to create a Hand Lettered Mason Jar:
To begin the Wooden Mason Jar Sign, gather all supplies. I love all things mason jar, so this wooden sign from Walnut Hollow is totally me. The mason jar is one of my favorite elements to design and create with, and so trendy.
Tombow Dual Brush Pens are my first secret. Use them to paint, actually stain, the unfinished wooden mason jar shape with Greys N60 and N90 for the lid and Blues 451 and 452 for the glass part of the jar. Now, don’t use brand new Dual Brush Pens for this step, but rather the other ones where the brush tip is no longer at a sharp point. Apply color using the side of the brush tip to large areas and the bullet tip for the details.
Blend the Dual Brush Pen marker strokes with a baby wipe and the wood grain really shows through.
To make the wood look like glass, apply a generous amount of my favorite, MONO Aqua Liquid Glue, to the surface of the mason jar. Spread evenly with an old paintbrush and allow to dry completely. See the translucent sheen? It looks just like glass! I just love it when a spark of an idea transforms into a wonderfully executed design. (insert happy dance!)
