DIY Mason Jar Sign

I tell you…. I am ready for Spring. March is here and Mother Nature keeps giving us small glimpses of Spring only to take it away from us. Grrrrrrrr.

When dreaming of Spring, I see vibrant flowers and mason jars filled my mommy lemonade. This is the inspiration for my sign and my hope that Spring is near.

To make this sign, I used:

  • Common wood
  • Brad nails
  • Stain
  • Cricut machine (Don’t have a craft machine, I can help. Visit my etsy store**)
  • Indoor Vinyl
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Glue Gun
  • Fake flowers from a dollar store

I used common wood for a lot of my projects. It’s cheap, light and easy to cut. I cut three 3.5 in x 12 in boards and nailed them together using a scrap piece along the back side of the sign.

I stained the board using General Finishes Java gel stain (seriously the best stain on the market. Super easy to use and dries quickly. I don’t get paid to say it either! ha!). Rub the stain in and let it dry.

Next, I cut a mason jar silhouette using my Cricut machine (my most favorite crafting item…Not paid to say that either!) with an indoor vinyl. I use an acrylic white paint on the mason jar stencil. After I let the paint dry,the jar looked incomplete to me so I decided to add text inside of the jar. A simple “Home Sweet Home” is always a welcome/popular sight!

After letting the paint dry, I used the hot glue to place some flowers to the top of the jar. Any color will do. Just a splash of spring flowers to create texture to the sign and give it a POP!

This sign is already being sent off to a home but need to make at least one more for myself. It turned out so sweet and springy!
