Lovely Little Jars

These lovely little jars are an easy home decor idea that you can re-create for any season or holiday. Remember the fall welcome sign I made last year using this same technique? It is simple and fun and only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish (minus drying time).

Materials Needed:

  • Paint — I used Martha Stewart Satin in three different shades of pink ($1.99 each at Michaels)
  • Jars — You can use recycled condiment jars, or pick some up for less than $2.00 each
  • Puffy Paint for the letters (about $1.00)
  • Embellishments — Ribbon, flowers, etc. (I spent about $4.00 total)


1.) Squirt some paint inside your jar.

2.) Shake your jar vigorously to coat the entire inside. If you don’t have a cork or cap, just put a napkin over the opening while you shake. And you can add a teeny bit of water to the inside to get the paint moving a bit, just don’t go overboard as the water will keep the paint from sticking to parts of the jar if you use too much.

3.) Repeat Step 2 for all your glass bottles, using a variety of colors if you would like.

4.) Use your puffy paint to write a letter on each jar to spell a word.

5.) Embellish & Enjoy! Add some ribbon and flowers or other creative flair!
