Mod Podged Map Mason Jars
My cucumber plants in my garden have been doing super this summer. I pick between 10-20 cukes a day! I love cucumbers. My Sister has been pickling some of the cucumbers (I don't like pickles, ew!) so I stole a few of her mason jars for a project.
I have seen so many amazing mason jar projects lately, it was hard to decide what to do. I decided to put this old map I had to use, and mod podge my mason jars.
(Also, if you are curious about the button frame behind my mason jar in the photo above, I have a tutorial for it, here.)
Supplies: Glass Mason Jars, Mod Podge, Paint Brush, Old Map, Paper Cutter, Spray Paint (optional)
1. Cut your map up into 1" paper strips.
2. Apply mod podge onto the back of a strip, and place it on the jar. Go over the top with a brush of mod podge as well.
3. Repeat with your map paper strips until you've gone all the way around.
I didn't like the gold color of the lids, so I took some Krylon spray paint and painted my lids white.
All done! Since the modpodge and paper is all on the outside of the jar, the inside is still foodsafe. The perfect place to store my snacks! (like cashews!) You could also store embellishments in them.
