I am working on additional wedding decorations for my daughter's wedding. I always planned to use mason jars with battery operated tealights, but originally planned to wrap lace up around each jar. I know that can be expensive. I recently saw a post with painted mason jars with something tied around the top of each one. That really looked cute too.
Realizing that buying lace for the jars will be an added expense, I got to thinking about painting mine as well. Then it came to me, I can do the crackle technique on these too. That will be easy and cost effective.
Before making a final decision, I decided the best thing to do is create one first. I want to make sure I like the results. I already have the supplies needed on hand. I might need to buy more Crackle Effects, but that is not too expensive.
I started by cleaning my mason jar. You can wash it and/or clean it with rubbing alcohol. No other preparations is needed. Really easy to do.
I would allow the jar to dry for a few hours. Make sure it is dry to the touch. If you place the crackle material on thick, it may take longer to dry. Check it before applying the paint.
This is just the beginning of the process of creating an lovely wedding decor items for the wedding reception. My next step will be creating the clay hearts to tie around each one.
Stay tune for the finished item. Just like the vases, they are not done yet either....The suspense will continue to build....
