Instructions

  1. Paint one jar red, one jar white, and one jar brown.
  2. Let dry completely and repeat with another coat. Let dry.
  3. On the white jar, add black paint to make three black "buttons." You could also hot glue on real buttons.
  4. For the red jar, use the black paint to form a belt for Santa's coat. Once dry, use gold paint for an open vertical rectangle for the belt buckle.
  5. Rudolph's mason jar is complete with a painted red circle in red acrylic or glitter paint.
  6. If you're sealing, use a foam brush and ModPodge to protect the paint from scratches. Two coats will keep the jars looking great. How to Decorate Mason Jars for Gifts
