    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • rubbing alcohol
    • scissors
    • pint size Ball® jars

    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Wash the jars in warm, soapy water; rinse and dry well before painting. Or clean the outside surface of the jars with rubbing alcohol and let dry.
    2. Evenly position and press 1" painter’s tape around the center of each jar.
    3. Use a sea sponge to dab White Frost paint on jars. Carefully remove the tape.
    4. Freehand the letters or place a letter pattern inside each jar and secure with painter's tape. Use Red Frost Writer for “J”, White Frost Writer for “O”, and Green Frost Writer for “Y”.
    5. For added durability, allow to dry/cure for four days and then bake in oven at 275 degrees for 30 minutes.
    6. Optional: Use a jar lid as a template to cut out scrapbook paper circles. Place paper circles over the lids and screw down the ring.
