I am a 32-year-old transplant from Seattle living in Atlanta, Georgia. I was born from creative genes, so I'm carrying on the tradition. I have been knitting for 17 years, sewing for longer and decoupaging for just a few. I do all of these things on a daily basis, or at least as much as I can. Follow my crafting adventures on the ModPodgeRocks blog.
Give friends and families a gift they can use all this fall and afterwards.

Other Supplies
Mason Jars with Lids – 2
Fabric in the colors of your choice
Scrapbook paper – fall colors and patterns
Ribbons of your choice – I used lace and measuring tape print
Baker’s twine
Cork shape
High temp glue gun
Craft glue


  1. Start by preparing your fabric with Mod Podge. Place your fabric onto a non-stick surface and paint a medium layer of Mod Podge on top – let dry. Do this so that when you cut the fabric it doesn’t fray. Make sure you have enough fabric to cover the jars.
  2. Once the fabric is dry, cut into several small squares.
  3. Begin covering the jars by adding a medium layer of Mod Podge to the side, placing a piece of fabric down and Mod Podging over the top. Keep adding fabric in this same way, overlapping as you go.
  4. When you get to the edges, cut darts into the squares so that you can overlap the fabric around the round edges.
  5. When you are done covering the jars in fabric, give them a final coat and let dry.
  6. Choose the acrylic shapes that you want to use on each jar (see the photo for suggestions). Trace the shapes onto scrapbook paper and then cut out.
  7. Mod Podge the paper to the back of the acrylic shapes and let dry. Optional step: add Dimensional Magic to the front of the acrylic shapes for a glossy look and let dry.
  8. To make your embellishments, use the Mod Melts in a high temp glue gun. Add to the Mod Molds following the instructions on the package, let cool and then remove.
  9. Paint your embellishments with the acrylic paint – I used Pure Gold on the owl and Autumn Leaves/Forest Moss on the flower shape. Let dry.
  10. Glue your embellishments to the front of the acrylic shapes and let dry.
  11. Add ribbon to your jars and let dry.
  12. Glue your embellishments on or tie to the lip with baker’s twine as shown in the photo.
  13. Let your jars dry, then fill with candy or other treats for gift giving.
