Do you host Thanksgiving? If you do, I have these adorable Pumpkin Mason Jar Name Cards that will be perfect for your holiday table. If you are going somewhere for Thanksgiving, you can make these fun guys, fill them with treats for your host and hostess!! Thanks to Consumer Crafts for making this possible AND for YOUR chance to win a Cricut Explore! (see below!)
A couple weeks ago I shared A Crafter’s Secret Weapon…Consumer Crafts! I found all my supplies on the site and you can too!
- Small Mason Jars (I chose the quilted variety)
- Orange Mod Podge Sheet Tint
- Paint Brush
- Jute Twine
- Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
- Small Paper Tags
- Baker’s Twine (optional)
- Craft wire (not pictured)
- Washi Tape (not pictured)
I started off by removing the lids to the mason jars, flipping them over and covering them in the Orange Mod Podge Sheer tint. You can follow the directions on the bottle and swirl the paint on the inside of the jar, however since I wanted to fill these with treats, I painted the outside.
The more layers of tint, the more vibrant the color! It looks milky when it’s wet but gets vibrant and transparent when dry. I did two good thick coats.
While the paint was drying I removed the labels from the tops of the jar lids. If you need a great way to Easily Remove Labels <—I have you covered. Then I glued the jute twine around the collar of the lid using my hot glue. Glue in small increments.
Continue on until the whole collar is wrapped in the twine.
For the stem, I made some washi tape vine curls and used a cork as the stem.
Hot glue the cork and the vine curl in place.
The tags came with some cream twine however I wanted to add a bit more color so I used some green twine. I wrote the names on the tags.
Like I said above you can use these for place cards, fill with treats for fun host/hostess gifts or even surprise a teacher or a neighbor with these! They are really easy to make!
