Mason Jars Part 3 - Doily Vase

Hello again! This is Part 3 of my 3 part blog on how to decorate our new PURPLE mason jars.  Last week I showed you how to turn your jar into beachy table decor.  Today I will show you how to turn your jar into a beautiful vase!

You will need the following supplies:
- Quart size mason jar
- 1 bottle Mod Podge, glossy
- foam brush
- 1 bag doilies, 6.5"
- 1 spool jute rope

First, you will need to cut off about 1.5" from the bottom of your 2 doilies. 

Next, center one doily onto the front of your mason jar.  Line up the cut off edge with the bottom of the jar.  Using your foam brush dab mod podge onto the doily.  You may need to use your fingers to smooth the doily down and get all the bubbles out.  Cover the whole doily with mod podge, smoothing down the edges as you go. 

Once you are done with the front side and it has dried, turn your jar over.  Repeat the process of gluing down your doily to the back of your mason jar.  The edges of the two doilies should overlap on the sides of the jar. 

Once your second doily is well adhered, you may cover your entire jar with a thin coat of mod podge.  Let it dry completely.  Once it is dry you can add your jute rope.  I measured out about 5.5 feet of rope.  Place the middle of your rope over the center of the front of your jar. 

Wrap the rope back and forth 4 times, your last wrap should bring you back to the front of your jar with about 8" left on both ends. Knot it then tie a bow.

Voila! Now you have a new, beautiful vase!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have some new ideas for how to dress up your mason jars.  Until next time, happy crafting!
