Mason Jar Bouquet Canvas
April 20, 2019
Hi everyone! Annie here with a fun home décor project made with the Jar Mini Pallet Shape. Spring has really sprung in my neck of the woods so I've been enjoying all things floral, but if you're in an area where you're still waiting to see that first pop of color, then this super bright and dimensional canvas would definitely hold you over in the meantime!
I've always loved turquoise mason jars the most and wanted to emulate the look of mercury glass as well, so decided to paint the jar shape in a way that would make it the star of the piece.
Using silver metallic acrylic paint, I painted a basecoat on the jar that would literally shine through the cracks of my top coat for a mercury glass-inspired look.
Next, I laid the Shattered Glass Stencil over the entire shape and pounced turquoise satin acrylic paint over top. Since this is a very intricate stencil, the pouncing method works best to prevent paint from seeping under the beautiful design.
When you remove the stencil, you'll have a beautiful blue jar with silver metallic cracks throughout (not exactly mercury glass, but it definitely reminds me of it).
Once dry, wrap white twine around the neck of the jar and adhere it to the lower half of a canvas board. Here I've used hot glue to adhere my jar to a grey burlap art board.
You can be as creative as you'd like when you fill your jar. I die-cut flowers out of felt and shaped them myself for my piece, but you can just as easily buy paper or silk flowers to fill your canvas. Don't forget some greenery! I started by adhering leafy branches and baby's breath to the canvas with hot glue to create a nice base for the floral arrangement. Then to help keep the arrangement centered and dimensional, I popped the center flower up about a half-inch with a half-sphere foam piece.
Fill the canvas up with the rest of your flowers for a full and dimensional look and place it inside a simple frame to hang on the wall or easily display on a shelf.
I hope you enjoyed this bright and dimensional décor project and thanks so much for stopping by today. What are you going to fill your jar with?
