Let’s get started.
Supplies for This Fun Fall Mason Jar Project
This easy mason jar project is perfect for fall decor, gifting, and even a family Thankful or Gratitude Jar.
- glass mason jars (3 sizes for this look)
- Americana Chalky Paint in Heritage and Chalk Paint in Lace (orange and off-white)
- Americana multi-surface in Woodland (green)
- wine corks (for stems)
- artificial leaves (rip them off another set of stems or buy an ivy-style)
- ribbon (we used a jute burlap-style ribbon)
- paintbrush, scissors, glue gun
- Dishwasher-Safe ModPodge (yes, this glorious product actually exists!) or another indoor sealant
How to Make These Adorable Chalk Paint Mason Jars
- Clean the mason jars and set the lids aside. Paint the outside one mason jar orange (the Heritage color), leaving the rim unpainted. Paint one mason jar off-white (the Lace color). Paint the third pumpkin a mix of orange and white (we used an equal amount of each color). Add a second coat when dry.
- While the first coat of paint is drying on the jars, paint the lids Woodland (green). They will need multiple coats, as well.
- Use the glue gun to attach the cork to the center of the painted lids and affix a leaf or two near the base of the cork. Tie off a piece of ribbon at the base.
- Seal these pumpkin chalk paint mason jars so that the paint doesn’t get chipped in storage or when moving them around.
Pumpkin Mason Jar DIY Gift Ideas
I was raised in the South and went to finishing school. This makes it impossible for me NOT to bring a hostess gift… When easy, adorable projects like this chalk paint mason jar pumpkins come along, I try to think how I can gift them.
When you paint on the outside and protect it with a quality sealant like the dishwasher-safe ModPodge, you can put absolutely anything in these cute pumpkin mason jars! A few ideas:
- peanut brittle or spiced cookie mix
- pumpkin spice sugar scrub
- pumpkin bread mix (or better: chocolate chip pumpkin bread)
- “Thankful For” or “Grateful For” cards – wouldn’t it just be an adorable Gratitude Jar?
