Make these 4th of July mason jars that will be a perfect addition to your 4th of July table settings! A super easy project that is inexpensive.
Today we are making some patriotic table decorations/utensil holders. These jars are jazzed up with blue and white stars and red and white stripes! It’s such an awesome idea and fairly easy to make!
After you check out my post…scroll to the bottom to snoop around and check out all the other awesome red white and blue ideas!!!!
Supplies to make 4th of July utensil holders
- 3 Mason jars (or old glass jars)
- red spray paint
- white spray paint
- blue spray paint
- white acrylic paint (for the stars)
- paint brush
- Painter’s tape
There is enamel paint that is made specifically for glass which means it adheres really well. Since I wanted my jars to look a bit more rustic I just used regular tole paint and spray paint!
How to make red white and blue mason jars
How to make the blue star jar
I spray-painted the blue mason jar first. Make sure to do nice light coats and give it plenty of time to dry in between coats!
After it was no longer tacky, I took the white paint and created stars. I hand-painted these- but you can totally cut out some star stencils with your silhouette cameo, Cricut, or even a paper punch!
How to make the red white striped jar
I painted the jar white, then taped off sections with painter’s tape and then painted it red to give it stripes!
You can distress them a little with sandpaper. I feel like distressed was made for me, if the paint starts coming off, it just looks like it was meant to be that way!
How to use your 4th of July mason jars
I purchased red white and blue utensils at the dollar store. So this whole thing cost me about $6! (including jars and paint!) You could totally use just old spaghetti sauce jars or other glass jars if you had to cut down on cost!
You can also use it as a fun centerpiece with some flowers or even fill it with sparklers or glow sticks!!
My only problem is that I can’t decide what order they should go. Blue first with both stripes after (like the flag) or stripes, stars, then stripes!
I even got these cute pinwheels from the dollar store too! BUT My Mind’s Eye has some darling 4th of July party decor!
