Lighting can be a huge comfort when you are up late studying, working, having a small get together…or having a small get together with someone who is about to become more than just friends. With this easy and simple mason jar lighting craft project, you can send a special note, poem or funny phrase to keep your spirits high.
How To Make A Writable Mason Jar Light:
Supplies Needed To Make A Writable Mason Jar Light:
- Chalkboard paint
- Tea light
- Mason jar
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: Create Light Window
We will be covering the majority of our jar with chalkboard paint, so for the light to shine though, we need to leave space. I sketched out an oval to frame the lighting on the mason jar, but you can also do a heart, circle or any shape you like!
Step 2: Paint Jar
Use a small brush to paint the whole jar, minus the bottom, lid and your window. This may take a few coats, so allow each coat to dry before applying more paint.
Step 3: Decorate Jar
I added some twine to frame my oval. First, hot glue around your window frame, then apply twine (or ribbon, rhinestones, pom poms- whatever!). I cut mine a little short to make way for a bow on top. Make a bow from a separate piece of twine, then glue to top of your frame.
Step 4: Decorate Lid And Draw
Next, I added some simple strips of twine wrapping around the lid of the jar to finish up the look. Write a short poem, phrase or even a picture on the mason jar to give this craft some personality! Then add tea light and enjoy the soft glow. So cute, right?
