Patriotic Striped Jars

Americana Striped Jars

Jar Type
Three quart-size canning jars with screw-on bands and flat glass lids

Paint Type
Air-dry enamel for glass

Jar Decoration

  1. Using a " flat brush, paint stripes on each jar, one color at a time. Let each color dry before adding the next color. One jar is painted with blue and white stripes, another with red and white stripes, and the third with blue, red, and white stripes.
  2. To make jars look old, antique with a mixture of equal amounts of glass paint and varnish and dark brown acrylic enamel glass paint.
  3. Using an old toothbrush, spatter the jars with the antiquing mixture.

Lid Decoration
Prime the metal bands, then paint with an "instant rust" paint kit.

Wrap 20" of 20 gauge black wire around the neck of each jar. Attach three rusty metal stars (cut from sheet metal and painted with the same paint you used to paint the bands) to the ends of the wire.
