Stars-and-Stripes Mason Jar Instructions

This simple patriotic mason jar craft is incredibly quick to make. The longest part is waiting for the paint to dry!

1. Paint and Prep the Mason Jars

First, begin by laying out a newspaper and painting your jars either red or blue. I opted to do one of each color. You will most likely need to do two or three coats. Let each coat dry completely before adding the next.

Once the paint has dried, spray each jar with the Krylon clear glaze, and then allow them to dry all the way.

2. Create Patriotic Stars and Stripes Design on Your Cricut

Next, open up a new project in Cricut Design Space. Then select Upload Image–> Browse File, and find your Stars and Stripes file. Make sure you resize the images to fit your specific sized mason jar. Using a pint-sized jar, I sized mine to 2.75″ in width and 2.788″ in height.

Next, click “Attach” to attach the file together for cutting. Then click “Duplicate” so you have an image for each jar.

If you arrange the second file next to the first, this will help save on vinyl and cutting time!

3. Prepare Mats and Cut

Next, prepare your mats by cutting the vinyl to size, and then placing it on the cutting mat. Once you are ready to cut, set your machine to ‘Vinyl’, and hit ‘Make It’. Now sit back and relax while your machine does its thing.

4. Weed the Vinyl Design

Once everything is cut, remove the mat from the machine, and then carefully remove the vinyl from the mat. At this point, I cut the two designs apart to make the next steps easier.

Next, slowly remove all excess vinyl surrounding the design that you will not need. Then use the weeding tool to remove any smaller pieces.

5. Use Transfer Tape to Apply Design to Jars

Now, cut a piece of transfer tape to size, then place it over the design using the spatula tool to adhere the design to the transfer tape. Next, peel the original backing away from the vinyl leaving the design on the transfer tape.

Now place the design over your mason jar, and go over it with the spatula tool or a sturdy card to remove any air bubbles and to ensure the design has well adhered to the jar.

Then remove the transfer tape leaving the vinyl design on the jar.

6. Seal the Mason Jar Centerpieces

Once the design is on each jar, spray the entire jar with another coat of clear glaze. Let the sealant dry completely.
