Did you know that we have a store? In our store we have these fun farmhouse wood blank craft sets. Today I’m going to be showing you how to make a wood Mason jar farmhouse frame using this set. If you are interested in buying a set to craft with you can snag one here in our store.
This craft is kind of detailed, but it turned out so cute. And just because it’s detailed doesn’t mean it’s hard. It’s actually simple to make, let me show you how.
- Frame from Dollar Tree
- jumbo popsicle sticks
- Mason jar wood cut out – snag one HERE
- Magnolia design co. stencil & white chalk paste – Snag one HERE
- Black chalk paint or crazy crow paint from A frayed knot paint line
- antique wax
- white chalk paint
- paint brush
- chippy brush
- paint pouncer
- Disposable tin cookie sheet from Dollar Tree
- floral picks
- spanish moss
- Fiskar scissors for cutting the popsicle sticks
- hot glue gun & glue sticks
Step 1: First, you are going to want to take the glass in the Cardboard out of the picture frame. Discarded the glass but keep the Cardboard. You’re going to need that. Paint the frame whatever color you wish and allow it to dry. I am using the color seafoam green from a frayed knot paint line. You can snag these paints here.
Step 2: Next, take some jumbo popsicle sticks and cut them the same width as the Cardboard insert. You can now hot glue them to the Cardboard insert. Once they are glued down you can take some Fiskars scissors and trim any excess that is hanging over.
Step 3: Now that the popsicle sticks are glued in place, you can take some white chalk paint and paint over it. This will give a ship lap effect to your project. Allow the paint to dry.
Step 4: Now let’s work on giving this a rustic look. You’re going to need a chippy brush and a paint pouncer. Take the chippy brush and dip it into some antique wax or the color crazy crowd from afraid not paint line which I used for this project. Brush most of your paint off onto a paper plate or a paper towel and then begin to brush it over your white popsicle sticks until you reach your desired look.
Step 5: For the frame, we’re going to do something similar like we did above, but we’re going to use a different brush. Because I was going for more of a rusty look on the frame, I decided to use a paint pouncer. So, take a paint pouncer and dip it into some antique wax or the color crazy crow from a frayed knot, pounce some off and then pounce it onto your project. To get into the cracks of the frame, you can take the chippy brush and do the same thing.
Step 6: Once all the pain has dried, you can now insert the cardboard insert with the popsicle sticks back into the frame.
Step 7: Now let’s work on the Mason jar, this is fun! Paint the Mason jar whatever color you wish. I chose the color crazy crow from a frayed knot paint line. It’s one of my favorites! You don’t have to paint the top of the Mason jar because we’re going to cover that up here in a second.
Step 8: To make the black Mason jar look rustic, I dipped my chippy brush into some white paint, brushed some off and then ran it over my project just as I did above.
Step 9: For the top of the Mason jar to make it look more realistic, I used a disposable tin cookie sheet from Dollar Tree. Layer Mason jar one the tin cookie sheet, trace it and cut it out. To give it a rustic look to blend in with the rest of the project, you can pounce some antique wax or the color crazy crow from a frayed knot paint line. Hot glue it to the top of your mason jar.
Step 10: To add a little something extra, hot glue some twine to the top of the Mason jar. Just hot glue a piece in the back of the Mason jar and then wrap it around a few times and hot glue it to the back again.
Step 11: You can spruce up your Mason jar any way you wish, but I chose to add this a Magnolia design stencil to it. I absolutely love using Magnolia Design company stencils. They are so easy and come out perfect almost every time. If you are interested in viewing these stencils, you can look here on my affiliate link.
Step 12: Now we can start to assemble this cute project. You can add any type of flower you wish, but I chose these lavender pics that I bought at Walmart. I think they only cost around $2.00. Cut them down and set them at the top of where you want your Mason jar to go. Staple them into place but be careful because I accidentally stapled through my board and stapled my project to my table, LOL. If you do this, it’s not a big deal. Just pull your project up and put a dab of glue on those staples.
Step 13: Hot glue the Mason jar in place. If it doesn’t sit right down, someone had recommended putting a Jenga block behind it. I think that’s a great idea and would work well!
Step 14: To cover your staples, add some Spanish Moss to the top of the Mason jar where the Flowers meet. This will add a super cute touch while hiding your staples all at the same time.
