Winter Mason Jar Holder


This winter I have the extreme pleasure {picture me with a glue gun in one hand, paint brush in another, jumping up and down with glee} of teaching a course called “Pinspired Projects“.

I came up with the idea of offering a six week “crafting” class for adults where they recreate popular posts from Pinterest.  I pick the first four craft projects and participants vote on their favorites for the last two projects.
I am seriously pumped to be teaching this course!  It combines so many things that I love; teaching, crafting, painting, decorating, pinterest…. you name it!  It’s awesome!
If you are local you can find this course and more classes that I instruct here.

For our first class we used this pin from Creative Minds Without Borders to create a 
Winter Mason Jar Holder.
This is the example that I created for class.

This is really a simple project that anyone can do at home.
During our first class we also made Cinnamon Mason Jar candles that I will share soon 
{they were fun to create and smell so good!}

To create a Masor Jar Holder you will need: a wooden plaque, drill, drill bit, medium gauge wire, 
mason jar, paint and a brush.

Start by drilling two holes at the top of the plaque and two holes in the center {as pictured below}.

White wash the wooden plaque using white acrylic paint that has been watered down a bit, allowing the wood grain to really show through.

Coat with a sealer like varathane and allow it to dry.  Finally attach the jar to the plaque with wire and create a wire hanger at the top.

I love how versatile this project is!  Paint the plaque any colour that you would like.  Fill the jar with twigs, foliage or flowers to create a totally different look.

And check out this fabulous variation from one of my students!  I love the addition of a coat of brown paint and barn star.  Just perfect.
