Fall Baby Food Jars

Share this post

A couple of weeks ago I shared these adorable {and easy} fall jars over at Unoriginal Mom.  They are one of my favorite fall crafts of the year.  They sit right next to my front door and make me smile everytime I see them.

I enjoy decorating for fall and bringing that crisp colorful feeling into my home.  These jars have a rustic touch while incorporating 2 of my favorite textures; glitter and chalk paint.

  • 4 baby food jars (I made all the food for my first, but with the second most days it’s just easier to buy it.  Bonus, I have found so many uses for these jars!  I am saving each and every one)
  • White Chalk Paint
  • Raffia
  • Glitter Vinyl
  • Silhouette Cutting Machine

I started by cleaning the jars and removing the labels. The easiest way to remove any sticky residue is to put the clean jars in the sink and fill it with boiling water.  They come out squeaky clean.

Once clean I painted them with a single coat of white chalk paint.  I really like Decoart Americana Chalk Finish paint, it has great coverage and a beautiful matte finish.

While this dried I created and cut “Fall” with my Silhouette using silver glitter vinyl.

I used permanent vinyl, which meant once it touched the jar it would stick very well.  To make sure I placed it perfectly I used Con-Tact paper to pick up my letter and line it up before smoothing it in place.  This is an inexpensive alternative to vinyl transfer paper and works really well.  You can reuse the same piece of paper for each letter.

To top off the jars I wrapped the top in raffia to cover the paint lines and add a rustic touch.

These jars coordinate with my white and silver glam mantle and look really pretty in my living room this year.

Such a quick and easy fall craft.
