Materials List

  • Wide Mouth Canning Jar
  • Krylon Modern White
  • Krylon Hosta Leaf
  • Krylon Oxford Blue
  • Krylon Gold Leaf Pen


Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Start by painting the entire jar with the modern white. One trick is to clean the entire surface with rubbing alcohol before painting to ensure adhesion. I also turn my jar upside down on cardboard to paint to keep paint from going inside the jar.

  2. Once dry, tape off the vertical lines.

  3. Paint the jar with the hosta leaf spray paint.

  4. Once dry, remove tape and tape off horizontal lines. Once again paint the entire jar with hosta leaf.

  5. Allow to dry and repeat all steps with the oxford blue.

  6. Once your final stripes have been added and you are happy with the results, use the gold leafing pen to outline the stripes as shown. This really makes everything pop! You can add a clear sealer to the top but I am using mine with no sealer and everything has been fine.
