4TH OF JULY MASON JARS AS UTENSIL HOLDERS
Independence Day is several weeks away, but it is always one of those holidays that sneaks up on you. A busy summer full of outdoor activities means that the holiday arrives before you can plan ahead for your 4th of July barbeque or family gathering. This year I will be helping to remind you by posting several patriotic themed projects, crafts, and decorating ideas over the next few weeks to help you get ready. Consider this your first reminder!
I love the idea of housing your plastic utensils or silverware for any party or barbeque in DIY decorated mason jars.
This project is so easy. All you need is red, white and blue acrylic paint, a paintbrush, and some painter’s tape.
You can paint the inside of each jar solid red, white and blue for an easy and quick version of this project! I like the dry sponge painting method for this idea – it gives the jars a more rustic look since you end up with more of a splotchy painted look.
However, to paint them to mimic the American Flag, paint one solid blue, let dry and freehand or use a stencil to paint white stars on top of your dried blue paint. Next, for the other two mason jars, paint them solid white and let dry. Add painters tape in several straight lines or rows around your white jars and paint red stripes, to create your red and white stripes.
It’s never too early to order in your patriotic decorations for your summer 4th of July celebration and our Etsy shops can help! This year we have added much of our 4th of July banners, favors, and pinwheels to the shops early to help you start planning ahead!
