Just in time for 4th of July. This simple painted jar with a tea light inside maks a fun centerpiece.
Total Time: 1 1/2 hours plus drying time
red and blue acrylic paint
Using masking tape, mark off middle section of jar. Place star stickers randomly around the jar. I made my own using a stencil and large label paper. Paint the bottom of the jar with the red acrylic paint. Paint the top of the drawer with blue paint.
Repeat painting layers until you have the desired look. I painted about three or four layers of paint, allowing it to dry thoroughly inbetween coats.
After completely dry, use a razer blade to carefully remove tape and stars.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes to cure the paint. Paint a little modge podge in various places all over the jar and add glitter. Glue a ribbon around neck or embellish with whatever you desire. I had a couple of scraps of star garland and glued that onto the jar. Place tealight on the inside of the jar and enjoy.
