Tips to Make Harry Potter Painted Jars

  • Do not feel like you’re restricted to using mason jars. You can use old pickle jars, Ball jars, Kerr jars. Any thing really. As long as you have some glass container, it’ll be the same.
  • Take your time, but don’t get upset it your stripes end-up a little crooked. Each Hogwarts House Harry Potter mason jar is going to be your unique creation.
  • Grab the fun house badges here. These are the cherry on top of the striped Harry Potter painted jars. Just paint your stripes, add the “leather” top and go to town gluing these badges on and you’ve got a super epic looking jar.
  • If you want to make your painted jars hold up, I recommend using mod podge to seal it.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Active Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $10


  • 3 clean glass mason jars
  • 3 metal rings-optional
  • Craft paint in red, black, yellow, green, silver and blue
  • Light brown craft felt
  • House badges
  • Mod podge-optional


  • Paint brush
  • Painters tape
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun & glue


  1. Start by taping off your stripes horizontally around the jar. Leave equal sized spaces for each stripe.
  2. Paint two stripes. I recommend starting with the light color because going over the darker color with the lighter color will be more difficult to cover to make clean lines. Remove the tape while the paint is still tacky. Allow the paint to dry completely.
  3. Paint the remaining stripes, filling in all the spaces remaining on the jar. Allow the paint to dry completely. Clean up your lines with a second coat, if necessary.
  4. Cut strips of the light brown felt about 1-inch wide and long enough to go around the opening of your jars. Hot glue these strips over the top of your jar, folding it over the opening to give it a finished look.
  5. Hot glue the corresponding badge to the front of the jar.
  6. Once you jars are completely dry give them a coat or two of mod podge to help the paint stay in place a little better. photo collage tutorial of how to make harry potter mason jars for hogwarts houses
