If you’re like me you already have a collection of jars and Mason jars but if not that’s ok, too! I’ve turned into somewhat of a hoarder. Use colors that match your kitchen for a fresh look by using any color of paint to brighten your room.

I used a Rooster pattern I found on Google.  There are hundreds of different styles of Roosters so do a search and look for the one you like.  What I love about this tutorial is you can use any cut out you like.

Once you select a photo you will print it out on contact paper. Let me show you how!

Here’s the step-by-step tutorial.

SUPPLIES

Mason Jar

Contact paper

Red spray paint

Black acrylic paint and a sponge paint brush

Printer

Rooster pattern of your choice found on Google search

Step 1: You will paint the inside of your jar black. Pour acrylic paint inside and roll your jar around to coat the entire jar, use a sponge paint brush to coat it completely. Set it upside down to let the extra paint run out.  This usually takes a couple of hours. Then turn the jar right side up and let dry over night.

You will then tape contact paper to a piece of paper and use that to print your rooster on.

NOTE:  Once you found a photo save it to your desktop.  Then open it in PicMonkey and flip the image. Make sure when you print it, it is facing the opposite direction because when you peel it off the contact paper and apply it to the jar it is going to be facing the other direction.

You can easily flip your photo in PicMonkey. (affiliate link)

Step 3: Cut out your Rooster using scissors and an exacto knife for the hard to get to places.

Step 4: Peel off your Rooster from the contact paper and place it on your jar.

Step 5: Before you spray paint the jar put something over the top so you don’t get red spray paint in the jar.

Krylon is my favorite go to spray paint. I used a gloss paint.

Spray it with a clear sealer then fill it with kitchen utensils or other favorite things!

I’d love to hear how you would use the jar!!

    WONDERED IF YOU PAINTED YOUR BASE COAT (MAYBE ALSO IN SPRAY PAINT) ON THE OUTSIDE AND NOT ON THE INSIDE YOU COULD POSSIBLY THEN — USE THE BOTTLE FOR FOOD STUFF OR LIQUIDS. JUST AN IDES

      Hello! Yes, you can do that! I used two colors, (black and red) so that’s why I painted the inside of the jar. If you only used one color and painted over your design template (rooster), when you peel it off it will be clear…the color of the jar. Which is fine, too! 🙂

      Thank you, Laurie! I’m glad you like it, my kitchen has been red and black for years. I never seem to get tied of those colors and they go well with other colors I have added in my kitchen. Thank you for hosting an awesome party! 🙂
