Hi friends! Today, I am going to share with you all how to make a wood mason jar cutout salt & pepper shaker holder. This cute farmhouse kitchen décor piece was made using our mason jar wood cutouts that are available to purchase on our online store! This farmhouse inspired kitchen décor DIY was so simple to create. You could also use this beautiful salt & pepper shaker holder for any of your essential cooking spices. Wouldn’t this DIY salt & pepper shaker holder make the best house warming gift?!
- Wood mason jar cutout (Grab it HERE!)
- Wood crate from Dollar Tree
- Stain ( grab the stain I used here on my affiliate link)
- gloves for staining
- old rag for staining
- paint color of your choice ( I used the color Tiffany)
- dark grey acrylic paint
- metallic silver acrylic paint
- brown acrylic paint
- baking soda
- foam brush (Grab some here on my affiliate link)
- sand paper
Step 1. Purchase our mason jar wood cutouts available now on Burlap Kitchen’s online store. You get 3 of these beautiful mason jar wood cutouts to craft with in a pack! *We’d love to have you follow us on all of our social media platforms so you never miss out when we drop cute new items on our online store!
Step 2. Take one of our mason jar wood cutouts from the pack of 3 and using Minwax stain in the color “Dark Walnut,” rub stain on the front, back, and sides of the mason jar wood cutout. Then, rub the stain off. Allow to dry completely.
Step 3. Using a small wooden crate I purchased from my Dollar Tree, apply the same stain used in Step 2 to the entire crate with a foam brush. Then, use an old rag to wipe the stain off. Allow to dry.
Step 4. Using A Frayed Knot’s paint in the color “Tiffany,” paint the front of the stained mason jar wood cutout with a foam brush, *but be sure not to paint over the top rim of the mason jar. You want to leave the stain color exposed around the top rim of the mason jar. Allow to dry completely. Then, add a second coat of this same paint being sure not to paint over the rim going around the top of the wood mason jar cutout. Allow to dry completely.
Step 5. Next, take some sand paper and sand over top of the paint on the front of the mason jar wood cutout. This will create a more farmhouse style look to the final project.
Step 6. Using a grey shade of paint from Apple Barrel, take a paint brush and paint the top rim/lid of the mason jar wood cutout grey. This will resemble the “lid” on a mason jar. Allow to dry. Once dry, use a metallic silver paint, and apply it in random spots across the top/rim of your mason jar wood cutout with a foam brush. Allow this to dry. Then, using a brown color of paint, mix some baking soda into the brown paint and use a foam brush to dab this paint mixture over the top/lid of your mason jar wood cutout. This will make the “lid” of your mason jar wood cutout look rustic. Allow to dry.
Step 7. Use a black ink stamp pad, and dip letter stamps that spell out “SALT & PEPPER” into the black ink and then carefully press each stamp letter down onto the front of the mason jar wood cutout, below the lid. You can position your letters/wording to your liking onto the front of the project, but I tried to place them around the middle of the mason jar wood cutout. Allow to dry.
Step 8. Cut a piece of buffalo check ribbon, or any ribbon of your liking, so that it is long enough to tie a bow around the top/lid of the mason jar wood cutout. Tie a small bow around the lid over your mason jar wood cutout, I placed my bow towards the one side of the “lid.” Cut away any excess ends of ribbon at an angle. Place a dab of hot glue under the bow to secure it in place. Allow to dry.
Step 9. Next, take the stained wooden crate and hot glue it to the bottom front of your mason jar, under the word “PEPPER.” Be sure the bottom of the crate and the bottom edge of the mason jar wood cutout are aligned with each other so that the crate is able to support the mason jar wood cutout and your salt & pepper shaker holder will sit evenly. Hold the crate in place until it dries. Add some salt & pepper shakers, or other spices of your choice, and enjoy!
