Clear Scraps DIY Mason Jar Pallet--Jar of Blessings
November 16, 2020
Hi everybody!! Laura joining you all today with a sweet little fall home decor project!
This was created using the Clear Scraps Mason Jar Medium DIY Pallet Shape.
To create the base on the pallet, I painted the top of the jar gray and used some
black ink to distress once the paint was dry. Then I traced the top and bottom of
the jar on the leaf patterned paper, cut it out, inked it, then glued to the pallet.
The center was fun, I did end up covering most of it up, but it's painted and stenciled.
I started out with the brown paint, and then set aside to dry. Once it was
ready, I placed the Clear Scraps 6" Chevron Stencil centered in the middle.
I used a sponge applicator to dab on orange paint for a nice pop of color.
Now that the base was set, it was time to paint the Clear Scraps Blessed
Chipboard Word Title with the matching orange paint, then set aside to
dry while I started on the NEW Mini Shaker Maple Leaf. The frame was painted
with green, then dabbed with some brown. I traced it onto some patterned paper,
cut out and glued to the solid back piece, then glued the outline layers on to
build the shaker up to hold the sequins. Next thing was to add the sequins,
then glue down the acrylic layer. I thought I'd show a picture of the protective
plastic that is on BOTH sides of the acrylic so it doesn't get scratched or all
fingerprint filled. I carefully peel off the back, glue it down, THEN I peel off
the other side like you can see in the picture here:
Now it is nice and fingerprint/scratch free and I can glue down the final layer of the
frame I painted green/brown. Easy but such a great little feature on these shakers!
Then I just put it all together and added a few finishing touches with some paper
scraps, twine, and enamel dots.
Thanks for stopping by today! Stop back soon!
