INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Remove the lids from the Mason jars and clean the glass thoroughly with rubbing alcohol and paper towels.
  2. For each lid, glue the inner seal permanently to the screw-on part of the lid using E6000 Glue.
  3. Rip sections of painter's tape in half length-wise to create a rough edge border. Attach the painter's tape to each jar with the rough edge pointing down toward the paintable area.
  4. To protect the glass while you paint, overlap another piece of painter's tape just above the ribbed border painter's tape.
  5. Use a 1" flat brush and load separately with Cotton Ball, Buff Beige, Apple Green, Lavender Fields, Blue Bird, School Bus, Orange Sherbet, Lipstick, Pink Cadillac, Cocoa Bean, Dolphin, and Mink Pearl to paint the bottom and lower sides of each jar in a different color. Rinse the brush in between color changes and at the end. If needed, apply additional coats of paint, allowing the paint to dry completely between coats.
  6. Remove the painter's tape carefully from each jar.
  7. Use E6000 Glue to attach a wooden knob onto the center of each lid.
  8. Use a 1/2" flat brush and load separately with Cotton Ball, Buff Beige, Apple Green, Lavender Fields, Blue Bird, School Bus, Orange Sherbet, Lipstick, Pink Cadillac, Cocoa Bean, Dolphin, and Mink Pearl to paint each lid in a different color. Rinse the brush in between color changes and at the end. Let lids dry.
  9. Once fully dry, tie a matching ribbon scrap around each knob.
  10. Fill each jar with ribbon scraps in matching colors; fill the metallic-painted jar with metallic ribbon scraps.
