As you may have noticed, I’m a little bit obsessed with mason jars. They’re pretty adorable on their own, but let’s face it: everything’s cuter with gold polka dots.
This festive DIY is beyond easy, takes all of 2 minutes, and you probably already have mason jars and a gold Sharpie in your crafting arsenal. If you don’t, you can get them for less than $15, and they’ll definitely come in handy for future projects.
This tutorial is really just one step: draw some polka dots on a mason jar.
If you want to get fancy (or if you’re a little bit OCD, like me), you can use the pattern in the glass as a guide and draw a circle in the middle of each diamond (mine were about 1/8″ in diameter). Or just go freehand and mix it up with a combo of small, medium, and large dots.Mason jars are the swiss army knives of craft supplies, so you can use your gilded jars for pretty much everything.
Some of my favorite uses for polka dot mason jars? Adding some sparkle to a glass of lemonade, a vase of fresh flowers, a DIY gift, or even a batch of homemade pickles.
