Polka Dot Mason Jars

Polka Dot Mason Jar Glass // With Lovely,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.
Polka Dot Mason Jar // With Lovely,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.DIY Polka Dot Mason Jar // With Lovely,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.Polka Dot Mason Jar Vase // With Lovely,

    Do you have to bake the jars or anything to “set” the sharpie polka dots? I love this idea and have all of the supplies! Eager to try & thanks for sharing!!!!!!

    How do you keep it from fading or wearing off?
