Apple Mason Jars: Perfect for Back-to-School!

Please Note: This post includes Amazon Affiliate links. 

When I saw this adorable Apple Mason Jar Tutorial over at The 36th Avenue, I knew I had to try it right away! Mason jars are pretty darn cute all by themselves, so painted as an apple THEY ARE STINKIN' ADORABLE! I made 20 of these bad boys for the teenage girls at church, and the fact that they are filled with candy is a sweet bonus. They will love these!

To make these cute apple jars, I followed the tutorial {here} and I found my small mason jars at Target. I spray painted the lids with Rust-Oleum Satin (EDEN) and I painted the rest of the jar with Americana Primary Red and Dark Chocolate.  You can buy the wood pegs at any craft store, but they are on Amazon {here}.

I made these cute little tags and draped them over the peg with red twine. (I have a twine obsession... anyone else??) I used my Cameo to cut out the tags, so they are a nearly perfect circle and they look professionally done. The perfectionist in me REALLY loves using my Cameo. I use it to cut out circles all the time, because I am not good at cutting with scissors... apparently I missed that lesson in kindergarten! If you have a Cameo, you can download the tag file {here}, but make sure you download this font and this font. If you don't have a Cameo, you can download the PDF version of this tag {here}. I also cut out the leaves with my Cameo and I bought the leaf shapes {here}.

You really can't mess these jars up! They are so easy to make and they turn out so AWESOME! Like I already mentioned, I will be giving them to the girls at church, but they are also perfect for students, teachers, principals, librarians, custodians, secretaries, student teachers, parent volunteers, etc.

Thanks for reading! Don't forget to follow me on FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest!
