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!

Supplies Needed:

How to make a pumpkin mason jar

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.

Mod Podge Sheer Color Tints

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.

    This has got to be one of the cutest things E.V.E.R.!

    For the question…for years I’ve been wanting to make a Christmas tree skirt like we had growing up. A friend of the family made it for us, with felt cut-outs of Christmas trees, Santa, reindeer, etc, as well as a ballerina for me and a cowboy for my brother. So I’d probably be working on something like that.

    I’ve never used a Cricut, so I’m not sure what’s possible on the machine. I know I’d make some super cute tags for Christmas presents! And silhouettes! I’d make a few to decorate around the house. I’m thinking a few different colors on a black background as some modern art!

    The first thing I’d make with a Cricut Explore is a custom t-shirt! And then I’d make custom quilting appliques. Fingers crossed!

    I have never used a Cricut so I am not exactly sure. I would probably start with tags or gifts for Christmas.

    I am an artist and often created mixed media pieces. I would love to use the Cricut to make some precisely cut elements to incorporate into my artwork.
