5 Budget-Friendly DIYs for Fall
Mason Jar Flower Wall Art
Next, we have a Paper Mason jar craft with a 3d twist. The faux metal frame was created with foam board, I used faux flowers from the Dollar Tree, and the paper jar that says Fall was illustrated by me and printed. It can be downloaded for free here: https://angelaeast.com/download/fall-mason-jar/. I think my favorite feature of this craft was the flowers. It is almost surprising to see the flowers pop off of the frame. So, let me show you how I created this…
The frame measures 18″ length x 6″ width x 2″ depth. I used both a ruler and a template to measure. The template is unnecessary. I first cut the top which measured 18″x6″.
Then I cut 4 strips. 2 measured 18″x2″ and the other 2 measured 6″x2″.
Cut 45-degree angles off each edge of the top piece
Cut 45-degree angles of only 3 edges of the side pieces. One long edge and both short edges.
Assemble all edges. Connect the short edge to the long edge with hot glue. Make sure the edges 45-degree angle cut points up.
Now attach the top piece with hot glue.
I added a very light coat of brown spray paint to the frame. If it’s blotchy, it’s perfect.
Then I applied 1 coat of metallic copper-colored paint with a sponge. I made sure I applied with long strokes going the longest direction.
Once the frame was dry, I printed this Fall mason jar. It can be downloaded for free here: https://angelaeast.com/download/fall-mason-jar/.
I cut and glued the mason jar to the frame.
Last I measured, cut, and glued these faux purple flowers from the Dollar Tree to the top of the jar. I wanted it to appear it was coming out of the jar.
I glued some of the petals from the stem over the cut stem to hide the cuts.
Finally, I glued one last petal at the bottom of the frame for decoration.
