We are back with our our monthly Mason Jar Challenge. This month is all about Valentine’s Day. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to see what the other talented bloggers created with their mason jars.
Mason jars are great to craft with, as they are so versatile. I’m currently working on a craft room makeover that you can see here.
Inexpensive storage ideas are crucial and mason jars are great for markers, colored pencils, etc. I wanted to share a project that you can use not just for Valentine’s Day.
This gilded mason jar not only makes a great gift, but you can also use it in your home after, just by removing the Valentine’s Day tag.
Let me show you how easy this is to make.
Gilded Mason Jar
Start by adding a layer of the gilding adhesive to the mason jar. Let it dry for about 30 seconds so it becomes tacky.
Place a sheet of gilding material with the attached tissue paper on the mason jar and smooth it out. The gilding material is very fragile, so slowly attach it and remove the tissue paper.
You can cover just a portion of the mason jar, or cover the entire thing, like I did. I love this rose gold look and it will be so pretty to use as a vase or display it on a bookshelf.
Continue layering the gilding sheets until you are happy with the coverage. Finally, use the gilding brush to lightly remove any loose pieces of gilding material.
See how easy that was!

To make this gilded mason jar a sweet gift for Valentine’s Day, I added a stamped “Be My Valentine” tag and a pretty velvet ribbon. This was just added with a glue dot, so it can be easily removed.
Add real flowers and deliver this to your Valentine, or fill it with their favorite candy. This is only the second time I’ve used this gilding material and I really enjoy it.
It can be used in so many different ways. Check out the pink vintage ornaments I gilded here.
Sharing is caring-pin for later!
