Hey y'all!  It's Trish from Uncommon Designs and I'm super excited to share this awesome Back to School Mason Jar with you today!  Get out a mason jar and a little bit of paint and get ready to make a painted pencil jar that you can pack with all sorts of treats!

Items Needed:

  • Paint Brush
  • Water Basin
  • Palette
  • Mason Jar
  • Metallic Silver Ribbon


I am using mine to make a sweet welcome back to school treat for my children's teachers.  You could do that or make one for you star student.  They are so easy to make one... or a bunch!

Step One.  Paint the exterior of the mason jar with the primary yellow gloss enamels paint. Once that coat is dry add 1-2 more coats of the paint.  Make sure to let the glass dry completely between coats.

Step Two.  Paint the lid with the Flamingo pink paint.  I ended up painting 3 coats.  Again, make sure each coat dries completely before you start on the next.
