Ingredients

  • Glass mason jars 3 different sizes with lids
  • Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in "Heritage" Orange
  • Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in "Lace"
  • DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint in "Hauser Medium Green"
  • Paintbrush
  • 3 wine corks
  • Glue gun and clear hot glue sticks
  • Artificial ivy leaves
  • Decorative jute ribbon or twine
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Clean and dry jars and remove lids.

  2. Use Americana Decor Chalky Paint in "Heritage" to coat the surface of one jar, leaving the rim unpainted so you'll be able to put the lid back on later. Apply two coats if needed, to achieve an even color.

  3. Mix equal amounts of Americana Decor Chalky Paint in "Heritage" (orange) and "Lace" (white), then paint the surface of the second mason jar.

  4. Paint the third pumpkin with white chalk paint.

  5. Allow jars to dry and apply a second coat of paint if needed.

  6. While jars are drying, paint all of the lids with green acrylic craft paint. Allow to dry and add a second coat if needed.

  7. Cut a small trimming of the artificial ivy or foilage.

  8. Use a hot glue gun to secure a wine cork to the top of each lid. Hold in place until glue is dry.

  9. Apply a small line of glue along one side of the base of the wine cork and carefully attach the foliage you cut earlier.

  10. Place the lids back on you mason jars.

  11. Tie a piece of twine or jute ribbon around the base of the wine cork (we used about 6-8" of ribbon). Secure with hot glue.
