Acrylic paint, paint brushes of various sizes, Sharpie, Mod Podge.
You will need:
– Acrylic paint
– Paint Brushes (large and small)
– Stained by Sharpie, black
– Mod Podge (I used “sparkle” or “gloss”)
Step 1. Draw
Another way to do this is covering the area you don’t want painted with tape or paper. I just prefer drawing.
Step 2. Paint
Paint used may vary.
I used paint I had from other projects, one with the name “Pumpkin orange”. I ended up using 2 coats of each type of paint. One type of paint covered the jar better but had a matte finish I didn’t care for, and the other was nice and shiny but would have taken 10 coats to cover it.
First coat – matte finish paint.
After the shiny paint coat.
Step 3. Outline
Using “Stained” by Sharpie for this step.
All touched up and ready for the next step!
Step 4. Mod Podge
Used sparkle Mod Podge for this step. Can also use the spray glitter shown with the supplies with gloss finish Mod Podge.
Step 5. Embelish
Embellished with ribbon. Can also use pipe cleaners, hemp cord, or other kinds of ribbon or cords.
We had a BLAST making these adorable pumpkin jars. After we were finished, they were handed over to my mom, the “Candle Lady”. She filled them half way with pumpkin pie scented soy wax. They look like jack-o-lanterns when they are burning! SO CUTE!
