It's time to wrap up your Fall decorating! There's plenty time to add to your Thanksgiving decor before your guests arrive. Especially with an easy project like this one. And, most likely, you have everything on hand to get started. So, go ahead and brew some tea to get started on this fun craft project.


Jars or Other Glass Containers

Quotes or Art Printed on Your Home Computer


Pan Large Enough to Hold An 8.5 x 11 Piece Of Computer Paper




Download or create graphics that will go on the jars. I created the graphics used here in PicMonkey. Print the graphics in landscape mode. Tear, don’t cut, the paper at least 1 ½ inches above the graphic, and at least ½ inch below the graphic. You’ll want to leave more space above the graphic than below.

Steep some tea and pour it into a pan. Note: green tea will not be dark enough to properly stain the paper. Place the paper into the pan and allow the tea to stain the paper. It’s best to leave it overnight.

Remove the paper from the pan of tea and allow to dry.

While the tea stained paper is drying, add glue to the rim of the jar and wrap with twine. 

Wrap the tea stained paper around the jar and secure with tape on the back. You may also glue the paper to the jar, however, using tape allows you to easily change the wrap for each season. Use a piece of twine to tie a bow around the top section of the paper.

Fill the jar with Fall foliage, candles, candy, or display as is.

You'll want to make more than one! The jars look beautiful grouped together.
