4th of July Rustic Mason Jars

4th Mason Jar_Final 02

Today, I want to share with you a great way to jazz up an every day Mason Jar for the up and coming 4th of July Holiday.  With Mason Jars being so popular, I thought it would be super cute to have some that had ruffles on them making a great centerpiece.  So, here is my tutorial for the 4th of July Rustic Mason Jar.

Here’s What You Need:

  • Mason Jar (Quart Size with ring)
  • White Spray Paint (Flat Protective Enamel)
  • 3 Bandannas (Red, White & Blue) I found these at Walmart.
  • Hot Glue
  • Needle & Thread (But, a sewing machine is preferred)
  • Button Cover Kit

Begin by spray painting the mason jar with the white spray paint and let the it dry thoroughly.

Step 1: Cut your three strips of fabric.  Cut your Blue bandanna 4″ in width, Red to 3″, and White 2″. Make sure you have no finished edges remaining, so go ahead and cut them off of the ends.

Step 2: Fray the edges of your bandannas by pulling a few of the the top & bottom horizontal threads of the bandanna.  You can also use a sewing pin to help fray the edges.  Just pick at the individual strings and then pull on them to help the edges fray.

Step 3: Lay your (3) fabrics on top of one another and sew a loose single stitch down the middle.

Step 4:  To create your ruffle, take one of the two threads and gently pull it, causing the sewn fabric to pucker. 4th Mason Jar_STEPS

Step 5: To create the fabric flower, cut a 1″ strip of fabric 6″ in length. Next, base stitch along the bottom of the fabric. Once you get to the end, pull it tight and sew/tie it off.  Create a button using an easy button cover kit.   I finished the flower by sewing the fabric covered button to the center.
