Fill an antique Ball jar with miniature pool balls to add a rustic touch to your décor.

    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Clean the jar with rubbing alcohol.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. With a craft knife or cutting machine, cut a round stencil out of Contac® paper and place it on the jar. Press it down well.
    4. Using the cosmetic sponge, apply Glass Chalkboard Paint over the stencil. Apply multiple coats as needed.
    5. Remove the stencil. Follow the Glass Chalkboard Paint label instructions to bake the jar.
