DIY Glittered Mason Jars

DIY Glittered Mason Jars

Hi everyone!  Today, I’m sharing my newest gift idea!  I struggle every year to come up with unique gift ideas for my sons’ teachers.  I want to give them something that they will love without breaking the bank.  This Valentine’s day, I think these DIY Glittered Mason Jars are just that.  The best part?  They’re dishwasher safe!

I’ve heard that the new Martha Stewart decoupage is dishwasher safe after curing for 28 days (it says 21 on their website).  Pair that with some super fun glittered hearts and it’s a cute mason jar gift.

Love True Love – Valentine Sign

Hi!  It’s me, Liz!  Here again to show you this fun sign I made for Valentine’s Day.  Love True Love.  Isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about?  Well I thought this sign would be just perfect to go with any Valentine’s Day Decor.  It turned out super cute and was really easy to make.
Here is how I made this lovable sign:
I used a 1×8 piece of pine that was cut 14 inches tall.  I painted the board using red acrylic paint.  I used 2 coats so it was really covered.  After I let it dry, I used a vinyl stencil and placed that onto the board (my friend cut out my stencil for me).  Instead of using the vinyl as the lettering, I removed the letters so that I could paint in those areas.  After I made sure the stencil was really on there, I used white and pink acrylic paint to paint my letters and hearts inside the stencil.  Before they were completely dry, I removed the stencil so that it wouldn’t pull away any of the paint and I would have nice sharp lines.
