- Pint Mason Jars
- Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage – Multi-Surface Durable Gloss Finish
- Gel Food Colors
- Craft Sticks
- Cookie Sheet
- Parchment Paper
- Measuring Spoon (tbsp & 1/2 tbsp)
- Oven (Pre-heated to 225 degrees)
- Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Floral Lace
- Artificial Flowers
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Something to protect your workspace (Newspaper, Paper Bags, Cardboard)
- Wipe Mason Jars with rubbing alcohol to remove and debris.
- Put a cover down to protect your workspace.
- Pour 1 Tablespoon of Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage – Multi-Surface Durable Gloss Finish into an empty pint mason jar. Add 1/2 Tablespoon of water and 3 drops of gel food color. If mixing primary colors to create a secondary color like orange, make sure your drops do not exceed 3 drops combined (example: for orange use 2 drops of yellow and 1 drops of red, totaling 3 drops). If you add too much food coloring, the mixture will be too thin and will cause streaking.
- Stir the materials in the mason jar together with a craft stick until the color is uniform and you don’t see any white decoupage. Be sure to mix well around the inside edges and the bottom of the mason jar.
- Swirl the decoupage around the inside of the jar until it is completely covered.
- Once the inside of the mason jars is completely covered, including the inside rim, set the jars upside down on top of craft sticks on your protected work surface to let the excess decoupage run out of the jars. Placing the jars on sticks will allow the decoupage to run out without it pooling around the inside of the rim.
- Let the mason jars drain in this position for 1 hour. The colors of the mason jars will look pastel because you mixed the food coloring with white decoupage. Once the decoupage dries clear, your color will dry the same color as the gel food coloring you chose.
- Preheat your oven to 225 degrees.
- After 1 hour, carefully lift the jars and gently wipe any decoupage from the outside rim of the jar (if there is any).
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place the mason jars right side up on the lined cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet and jars into a preheated oven for 1 hour until the decoupage is completely dry and the glass is transparent.
- Remove the jars from the oven and set aside to cool.
- Once cool, tie a piece of Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Floral Lace around the outside of the mason jar.
- Wrap tulle around a bunch of artificial flowers, and set the flowers in the color mason jar.
