DIY Mason Jar Flag Decoration

These fun and festive mason jars are the prefect decoration to hold utensils, straws, cake pops, marshmallow pops, miniature flags, flowers or other 4th of July party favors! They are so simple and easy to make and look so cute!
What You Will Need:
3 mason jars
red acrylic paint
white acrylic paint
blue acrylic paint
paint brush
washi tape
a star stamp (or foam star cut out and wine cork to make your own)
an emery board or sandpaper


1.  Paint 2 of the jars white, and the other one blue

2. After they have dried, use the washi tape to mark off strips on the 2 white jars, and paint the red stripes. After they dry remove the tape, and the white stripes will still be underneath them.

3. Using a star stamp, stamp white stars onto the blue jar in random places. (to make your own stamp, hot glue a few foam star cutouts to a wine cork)

4. After they have dried you can use the sand paper or emery board to make the paint look distressed and have the lettering stand out more

Enjoy! :)
