Thanksgiving Jars Tutorial

Thanksgiving-Blog52

This year for Thanksgiving, I wanted to show off what I am most thankful for: my new crafting skills! I love the country, rustic look so I thought cute mason jars using adhesive vinyl would be great with my Thanksgiving decor. I made these cute sayings to keep everyone in the thankful spirit round the table.

Materials I Used:
• OraCal 651 Glossy Adhesive Vinyl Brown – Small
• (4) Mason Jars
• Roll of Twine
• LED Candle Lights
• Silhouette Cameo® Vinyl Cutter

*I found my jars, twine and candle lights at Michaels’ Craft Store

Project Time:
20 minutes

After I designed my phrases in my Silhouette Software, I measured how much space I needed on my jars and sized my letters to match. Once they were at the right size, I sent my designs to my Silhouette and cut.

Next, I cut enough transfer paper for each phrase, smoothed it out over top of my sheet of vinyl using a credit card then peeled the paper back revealing only what I wanted to apply.

Next, I just stuck my transfer paper with my phrase straight onto my jars. Smoothed again using my credit card and peeled the transfer paper right off. I tied my twine along the rim of the Mason jar and popped my LED candle lights into the bottom of the jar.

Then I repeated these same steps for my remaining jars.

Once they were done, I finally found the motivation to take down my Halloween decorations and put up my Thanksgiving display.

Hoping these jars spark some happy conversation around the dinner table! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone! Gobble, Gobble!
