  • How to make a jar. Doodled Jars - Step 1
    Step 1

    Mason jars have a two-layer lid that comes apart so that you can put in your own label. If you can’t get hold of one, a normal jar will do. Wash the jar with dishsoap and water to degrease it, and let it dry. Try not to touch it afterwards with dirty fingers.

  • Step 2

    To make a straight line, secure a rubber band around the jar and trace along the band with the paint pen.

  • Step 3

    Carefully doodle on the jar and allow the paint to dry.

  • Step 4

    Unscrew the lid and use a pencil to trace the lid on paper.

  • Step 5

    Decorate this lid insert in a pattern that matches your jar pattern.

  • Step 6

    Cut the circle from the paper, sandwich in the lid, and screw the top back on.

    *** Note: Marker is not foodsafe so don’t get any on the inside of the jar if you’re intending to use it for food.
