Hi All! Today I want to share with you my latest Diy Patriotic craft project. This “Easy Stars and Stripes Glass Jar – Holiday Décor”, project is a fun way to show your support and Patriotism at your home, office, next picnic, or cookout.
For this project, you can use any ole glass jar, it doesn’t have to be a mason jar. Great way to use up some of the empty jars that you have been holding on to.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m a little addicted to jar crafts. They’re not only easy, but I get to use one of my favorite craft supplies, chalk paint. I love the stuff! You can use it on just about anything without doing any prep work.
Ok enough of that, let’s get on with the project.

Project Supply List
Stars and Stripes Glass Jar
First, I started out with two clean glass jars (How I remove the sticky gunk left from labels).
Using blue chalk paint, I gave the first jar two coats of paint, letting each coat dry thoroughly.
For the second jar, I used white chalk paint and gave it two coats of paint letting each coat dry thoroughly.
Back to the first jar white I was using the white chalk paint I stenciled the stars onto the blue jar.
Now back to the white jar I added my red stripes. I just free handed them on, but you could use some blue painters tape if you wanted.
Once both jars were completely dry I added some watered down antiquing medium to tone down the colors and to give the jars and aged look.
Next, I lightly distressed each jar with fine sandpaper, to add to the aged distressed look that I was seeking.
That’s it! Add some flowers for a centerpiece, or plastic ware for your next cookout. Either way this Easy Stars and Stripes Glass Jar makes for some fun, and easy holiday décor. And who doesn’t Love Easy?
