Prep Time 2 minutes
Active Time 20 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $5

Materials

  • 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)

Tools

  • paintbrush, scissors, glue gun
  • Dishwasher-Safe ModPodge (yes, this glorious product actually exists!) or another indoor sealant

Instructions

  1. Clean the mason jars and set the lids aside. Paint the outsideone 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.
  2. While the first coat of paint is drying on the jars, paint the lids Woodland (green). They will need multiple coats, as well.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 Craft and Gift Ideas

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?

I will put cinnamon puffs in my big jar, I think it is a good all season mint that everyone could enjoy and they are individually wrapped. I buy a big 2 # container at Walmart. I have a nice recipe for spice tea that I enjoy on a cold winter day( along with the recipe) that I will put in the small jar. I like your good instructions. Thank you
