Tinted Mason Jar

It is nearly time to go apple picking.
So, pick up some apple brads from The Eyelet Outlet
and embellish your home decor!

Note the Checked Washi Tape in Fish Colors on this 3.75 x 5.5 inch card.
I used it to create a "hinge" element on this card.
With so many fun washi colors, you are bound to find a color to match
the patterned paper you are working with.

I tinted this mason jar using Mod Podge, blue food coloring, and a splash of water.
Coat the inside of the jar.  Then let the glue drip out.
Place it into your 170 degree oven and let it bake until the glue dries from opaque to translucent.

Wrap the jar with raffia and a bit of Sunset Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations.
I used another apple brad and some Glue Dots © to secure the decorative band.


Thanks for stopping by today!
