DIY Button Mason Jar Banner
My Mom has had these wooden mason jars laying around forever, They were a super cute banner with the words of the Fruit of the Spirit written on them, but they're vintage so the colors were faded. So, They got a restyle.
I was just staring at them the other day when I thought they would be so cute repainted white and "filled" with buttons.
As I said, we've had these wooden mason jars forever, but I did a bit of searching online and it looks like you can get some similar ones (not exact though) here at Oh My Crafts. You will need to drill holes in each side though as they don't have them.
1. Paint your mason jars white. I painted mine white, and then added a bit of mint acrylic paint here and there to give the jars more depth.
2. Go through your button stash and pick out a bunch of cute buttons. Glue them onto the bottom of your jars. I "filled" mine about halfway up, but you could add as many as you want.
(This is only about half of my button stash. I've got another big candy jar full of buttons.)
4. String your mason jars onto a long piece of twine, going in one hole on the side and then back out the other.
