Don’t you just love the different types of glass jars you find while out thrifting? Or even some of the jars that come straight out of your pantry after you have used them. Today I’m sharing a fun way on how to decoupage a glass jar. They are a great way to add a nice touch to your home decor or craft room to help keep things organised.

Step 1 – Give your glass jar a really good clean and let completely dry. Apply Slick Stick or Ultra Grip to the jar. Both are fabulous mediums to help your paint adhere to slippery surfaces. It will go on a milky colour but will dry clear.
Step 2 – Give your jar 2 coats of Cotton letting each coat dry.
Step 3 – Separate your napkin, removing the back and the middle so that you are left with the pattern.
Step 4 – Apply a coat of the Clear Coat Satin in a small section and carefully adhere the napkin, gently smooting out any wrinkles as you go. Join up the napking at the back.
Step 5 – Let dry. If you want a more vintage worn look use some 120 grit sandpaper and distress to your liking. Then apply another coat of the Clear Coat Satin to seal.
Pop some jute around the top of your jar and now it’s time to decorate!
Have fun making a whole set using different shaped jars. You could even get super creative and add some stamps to give a more layered look. Just make sure you do you stamping before you do your final coat of clear coat satin.
Let’s take a peek at what my dear friend Leanna has created using a glass jar!
