Pineapple Mason Jar

by Malia Karlinsky
There's something about pineapples that's just fun and happy! If you have an old mason jar, this project is a great recycle/upcycle. Make it for yourself, or as a back to school gift for a teacher.
First, gather your supplies.
Supplies: Yellow spray paint, a pint sized mason jar, a faux succulent and an oil based paint pen. You'll also want to grab some vinyl or contact paper and some candy!
Step 1: Cut an oval shape out of a scrap of vinyl or contact paper. You can always trace something oval shaped (or circle shaped would work well too).
Step 2: Stick oval shape on jar and spray paint the jar yellow.
Step 3: Remove the vinyl
Step 4: Use the oil based marker to draw "v's" on the jar.
Here's what it looks like after the "v's" are drawn.
Step 5: Add some candy inside the jar.
Step 6: Place the faux succulent on top. Super sweet gift idea! To grab the free "Have a Sweet School Year" watercolor pineapple tags, visit my blog.

    This is too cute. Did you ever try attaching the greenery to the jar lid? If so, how did it turn out?
