Fall Craft Projects - Decorated Glass Jars

Great fall craft projects can start from something as simple as an empty glass jar. With a little paint and a fabric covered lid, you just might want to make an entire collection.

See how we're sprucing up our craft corner with this easy craft idea! Check it out!

The idea is really easy. Let's take a look at what you'll need:


  • An empty glass jar (we used a "Taster's Choice" jar)
  • Paint suitable for painting on glass (available at craft stores)
  • Fabric
  • Ribbon (we used about 25 cm for the lid of each jar)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tape (not pictured)
  • Our Template.

For the jar:

1. Wash your jar (peel label off using water) and let dry.

2. Print out our template and cut out the leaves. Note that they are different sizes. Choose according to the size you need. Print out extra copies of the template if you find you'd like more of the same size. Tape the paper leaves to the front of the jar
