INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Use rubbing alcohol to clean the outer glass on all jars. Let dry completely.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a marker to trace scalloped label mask pattern onto Contac® paper three times.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use scissors to cut out the label shapes.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Peel backing off and center a label on the glass jar, pressing firmly to make sure all edges are down.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Use a cosmetic sponge and Lavender Fields to lightly dab all over the entire jar. Repeat the technique on the other jars separately using Chartreuse and Pink Cadillac.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Remove the Contac® paper once fully painted. Use a #1 liner brush and Eggplant to outline the scalloped opening on all three jars.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use a cosmetic sponge and the same colors used on the jars to paint the lids. (We are going to make the jars more interesting by putting the lids on different-colored jars.)
    Step 6 Example
  8. Use scissors to cut the MOM pattern into three pieces.
  9. Place a separate pattern piece inside each jar facing out and either hold or tape into place.
  10. Use a #1 liner brush and Eggplant to paint the "M's" and "heart" shape.
  11. Add Mom's favorite goodies, and they're ready for Mother's Day!
