Easter Mason Jars Craft

Easter Mason Jars

I had so much fun whipping up these little Easter Mason Jars. I was inspired by the ghost mason jars I made for Halloween last year. For this project, I used spray paint to quickly paint the jars, then I used my Cricut Explore machine to make the sweet little faces out of adhesive vinyl. These Easter Mason Jars were easy to make and they would be perfect as vases or candy jars.

Supplies needed:

Clean Mason Jars

Rubbing Alcohol

Spray paint in aqua, yellow and white

Cricut Explore Design-and-Cut System

Adhesive vinyl scraps in black, pink, yellow and orange

Black Sharpie

Directions

Step 1. Clean mason jars with rubbing alcohol to remove any oils or residue.

Step 2. Spray paint mason jars. Use smooth even strokes and let jars dry between coats to avoid dripping.

Step 3. Layout design in Cricut Design Space. I really loved using Design Space to get an idea of what I wanted my project to look like. Click on the image below to get a better look at the layout in Design Space. I selected a canister as my canvas, because it was the closest shape to a mason jar. Then I adjusted the size of the canvas to match the size of the jars I was working with. Finally, I used circles and triangles to create the little faces for my jars.

When I’m using adhesive vinyl, I always save the small pieces. They are great for projects like this. The Cricut Explore cut them quickly and unbelievably quietly!

Step 4. Once paint is dry, transfer vinyl to mason jars.  I wanted to add a little something extra to the bunny, so I drew whiskers on with a Sharpie.

I mean, who could resist these guys? For this project, I used spray paint because that is what I had on hand. Spray paint is perfect for a fun and easy craft like this. If you want a permanent paint finish, you might try the glass paint I used on my ghost mason jars.

A few notes: Cricut was kind enough to send me an Explore to review and use. I have not been compensated by Cricut and the love of the machine is my own!

  3. Oh my goodness, these are so stinkin cute!

  4. These are too cute! When you painted them did you leave them upright or did you turn them upside down before hand? Your jars are so smooth and I’m afraid I will end up having drips everywhere!
