A festive idea to ring in St. Patricks Day this year!
We have a DIY project that will have your friends green with envy. Now you enjoy your favorite holiday drinks in a custom painted mason sipper! Just follow our step by step instructions and after about an hour you’ll have some sweet heart shamrock jars!
Additional Items : Green spray paint (applicable to glass), painters masking tape, pencil, pen knife
Step 1 ) Mask off lid & un-embossed (flat) sides of the mason jar sipper. If you are not experienced with spray paint, it may be a good idea to mask the entire jar.
Step 2 ) Print our free Heart Shamrock Stencil and cut out the desired size shamrock.
Step 3 ) Cover the back of the printed shamrock with a layer of graphite, we will use this as transfer to get a perfectly shaped shamrock on your jar.
Step 4 ) Tape shamrock transfer (penciled side back) to the masked area of your jar. Next, outline the shape of the shamrock by tracing the printed image. This will leave a ghosted pencil mark on your tape mask and make it easier to cut out a clean shape.
Step 5 ) Remove shamrock transfer from the jar and begin cutting out the shape with a pen knife. Remember only to remove the cut shape and not all of the tape together.
Step 6 ) Take your mason jar to a well ventilated area and spray green paint only on the masked area where you cut out the shamrock stencil. After the paint has dried, carefully remove masking tape from painted area and lid.
Step 7 ) Now wrap 3/8″ green satin ribbon (about 12 inches long) around the neck of the mason jar. Tie a knot and with remaining ribbon, tie a wooden hang tag. Write your name and your partners name on the tags so you can keep track of which drink is yours.
Step 8 ) Finally add your favorite St.Patricks Day drink and enjoy the festivities! Don’t forget the cake pop straw!
It’s that simple to make your own custom items! You can make it even more original by creating different patterns or adding multiple colors, the possibilities are endless!
