I am finally linking up with 4thGrade Frolics for my first Monday Made It of the summer! I have had a busy first few weeks of summer. My schedule is slowing down, so it is time to get crafty and creative!
My first Monday Made It was inspired by a friend’s front door. I saw her adorable mason jar door hanger, and had to have one for myself. Here is the finished product:
It was actually rather easy to make! I started by taking some old newspaper, folding it in half (like a hotdog), and drawing a mason jar.
I cut out the mason jar template and traced it on a folded piece of burlap with a Sharpie. I found this burlap scrap really cheap at Hancock Fabrics! Once I cut out the mason jar on the burlap I had two 'jars' (a front and a back).
The next step was to paint the jar! I used a yard waste bag to put under the burlap since I did not have a tarp, and I did not want to ruin the granite! I learned that paint does not spread well on burlap, so it takes a lot of paint. I used an entire small bottle just for the blue.
Once all the paint had dried I stacked the two layers of burlap. Then, I hot glued them together. As I hot glued them I also stuffed it with old plastic grocery bags to give it some dimension. To finish it off I made a little bow and added a loop of ribbon to hang it with.
Ok, this was easy, but it did take all day!
My second Monday Made It is for the classroom! I LOVE banners! I make them on my Silhouette for every occasion. I made some last year for my classroom, I use them in the corners of my bulletin boards to display the subject area. I thought I would make a set to share with everyone.... and it is FREE!
