Autumn is Love
October 15, 2021
Hello Crafty Friends!
Fall has arrived! I love the beauty of the season, changing leaves and everything pumpkin spice! Today's project features Clear Scraps Medium Pallet Mason jar. Click Here These pallets are so fun to decorate and perfect for creating the perfect Home Decor piece.
The paper collection I'm using to decorate my mason jar is Frank Garcia's Autumn Sunset and Amber Moon collections.
To start, paint the edges around your jar (about a 1/4 or so) using a cream acrylic paint. Make sure to paint all sides and inbetween all pallet spaces. Let dry.
Next decide on what papers you want to use to decorate the 3 pallet surfaces. Measurements are as follows.
Top pallet: 5 x 1/2 inches, Middle pallet: 5 &1/2 x 2 3/4 inches, Bottom pallet: 5 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches. Round all edges before adhering with glue to your pallet surfaces. Trim off excess paper on the top pallet on both sides with x-acto knife. Smooth around all edges with distress or sanding tool.
Next take some Jute cord and wrap around the top of your mason jar a few times and tie a knot towards the back. I took some fall foliage dies in my craft stash and diecut some pieces from some of my leftover papers. I tucked these fall foliage leaves and stems under my cord and glued them down securely. Then adhered a chipboard sticker heart "Autumn is Love" on top in the center of my top pallet surface.
For my middle pallet surface I added a flower and more chipboard stickers sentiment and this cute little bird.
For my bottom pallet surface, I fussy cut out acouple butterflies and adhered with some glue. I lifted up their wings so they were appear to be flying away! I glued a ephermera pumpkin on the right bottom corner. Took this cute rabbit ephermera and added some foam dots to the back. Then adhered on top of the pumpkin. I also added a chipboard sticker sentiment!
To finish my project I added a few crystal gems and some Stickles glitter on the pumpkin surfaces and butterfly wings!
