Hi everyone! It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a quick tutorial to make this bright and cheery mason jar banner perfect for spring decorating. With three jars in this wood shape set, you can use it alone or buy multiples to spell out any name or phrase in the form of a banner or wall hanging. I've been yearning for spring, so I thought I'd use my banner to wish for May flowers.
I started by sanding each jar shape with a sanding block, and then applied metallic champagne acrylic paint to the surface. Once dry, I sanded the pieces again and applied a second coat of paint for a smooth, even finish.
Once the shapes were completely dry, I secured the capital letter stencils to each one with painters tape. Then I applied teal glitter paste through the stencil with a palette knife, removed the stencil immediately when done to wash in soapy water, and allowed it to dry for at least an hour.
Add silk flower bunches to the back of the jars with hot glue and then tie a bow with pretty ribbon around the neck of the jar to secure the flowers even more. Punch holes on either side of the neck with a heavy duty hole puncher and string the shapes together using rustic twine. Hang the banner on any wall to instantly cheer up the room!
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy springtime banner project and thanks so much for stopping by today. How would you use the new triple wood shape sets to decorate your home?
