How To Make Rooster Mason Jars Gift and Craft Kitchen Ideas
Turn a Mason Jar or any jar into a Rooster jar. Simply use a cut-out and a some paint to transform any jar into a decorative jar.
My kitchen is decorated in Roosters and I am always adding new Rooster decorations including this adorable Rooster jar.
This tutorial is super easy. Anyone can do it by following these easy step-by-step instructions.
I will show you how to transform a jar into a beautiful decoration using a cut out decal.
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.
Give any room a fresh look by using colors that match your decor.
These jars will brighten any room.
You can find cut-outs by doing a Google search.
There are hundreds of different styles of Roosters so do a search and look for the one you like.
Or if you want to create a jar with a different cut-out just search for the cut-out you like.
Once you find a cut-out, you will print it out onto contact paper.
Don’t be afraid…..it’s easier then you may think!
Here’s the simple tutorial:
Red spray paint
Black acrylic paint and a sponge paint brush
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.
Step 6: Paint the entire outside of the jar red painting over the Rooster.
I’d love to hear how you would use the jar!!
