Mason Jar Christmas Centerpiece



Start by painting the mason jars with two coats of white chalk paint. I love DecoArt’s brand in Everlasting and tend to use that on a lot of my craft projects.

It has great coverage and is very reasonable. Let the paint dry in between coats.

Home With Transfer

Next, lay your transfer on the mason jar in the center of each jar. I usually just eye ball it, but you can use a ruler if you want to be sure it’s even.

I am kind of a lazy crafter, so I just wing it 🙂 Here is a simple how-to for using Chalk Couture:

I’m kind of addicted to Chalk Couture, as you can tell but all the fun stuff I’ve been sharing.

But, in my defense I am making lots of Christmas presents! If you have tried it before, then you understand what I’m talking about.

If you haven’t tried it-what are you waiting for? You can check out all the transfers and chalk products here.

The O in the Home is a pretty Christmas wreath that you do in 3 layers, adding pretty red berries last.

The berries really make it pop! Be sure to let the chalk dry in between layers.

Berry Wreath Mason Jar

Aside from the painting, these Christmas mason jars take only about 15 minutes.

You can fill them with fresh cut pines, or holly berries. How about small poinsettias?

You could even bring this as a hostess gift. They really go with any decor. So many simple options! Here they are lining a window sill:

You can never go wrong decorating with mason jars! They are one of those things that has a million uses.

Did you see the individual pumpkin creme pies I shared here?  They are served in mini mason jars and are a great treat for Christmas too!
