Make a mason jar sign to display flowers year round!

This month’s post theme is flowers which is perfect for the beginning of spring.  To be honest, this one was tough for me! 

I was stumped for a few weeks and had a whole list of different projects that I kind of liked but nothing really stood out.

Finally, the idea of making a mason jar sign with flowers popped into my head and I’m so glad it did! 

This was an easy project and an inexpensive way to display flowers year round.  I also wanted to try out the Cricut stencil paper and give you a new free SVG cut file!

Materials Needed for Mason Jar Sign

  • wood – I had this wood piece in my garage already.  I got it a couple of years ago during an after Easter sale at Joann’s.
  • stain of your choice – I used MinWax Dark Walnut and Weathered Grey
  • chalk paint
  • Cricut Stencil or Vinyl
  • Cricut or another cutting machine – I absolutely love my Cricut!!  Check out my ultimate resource for Cricut ideas by clicking here!
  • mason jars
  • adjustable stainless steel clamps & mending braces- I found mine at Lowe’s in the plumbing hardware aisle.  There are different sizes so make sure you know how wide you’re mason jars are!  I used the 3 1/16 to 4 inch size.

Prepping the Wood Sign

You can use any kind of wood that you want.  You can attach a few pieces together or buy one similar to this one from a craft store or Wal-Mart. 

Sand your boards to make them as smooth as possible.  I sanded with 120 grit and then 220 grit with my orbital sander.

I brushed on a layer of dark walnut stain and then wiped it off with a towel.

Once it dried, I added a layer of Rustoleum weathered grey and again wiped it off with a towel.

I love the two stains together!  I used these same stains when I made my farmhouse table (found here) and my wooden signs with sayings (found here)!

Using Cricut Stencil Vinyl

I tried something new for this sign.  If you’ve read many of my DIY sign tutorials, you know I usually use oracal 631 for my stencils along with a layer of mod podge. 

However, I was at a craft store and saw the Cricut stencil vinyl on sale so I decided to try it.

Once you download the free file, upload it into Cricut Design Space and size it to fit your board. 

When you cut it out, turn the dial to custom and scroll down to Vinyl, stencil.  Then weed out the letters.

Add transfer tape to the stencil and apply it to your wood.  For a full tutorial on how to apply a stencil to wood click here!

I used chalk paint to paint in my stencils.

Once the paint is mostly dry, peel off the stencil.  I didn’t use mod podge with this, but I think in the future I will since I had quite a few bleeds. 

This board was also a little rough which makes bleeding more likely.  Overall, I liked the Cricut stencil vinyl and will definitely use it again!

I then take my weeding tool and go back and try to gently scrape off the paint.  That’s why I like to peel off the stencil before it’s fully dry, in case I need to remove some of the paint. 

You can’t really see the spots unless you get really close to it or unless you’re a type A like me!

Once everything was dry, I brushed on a coat of polycrylic.

Once that was dry, I used mending braces to secure the adjustable clamps since I don’t have a drill bit to screw through the metal.

Adjust the clamps so that the mason jars will sit securely in.  I measured mine so that the bottom of the sign would be flush with the mason jars so that the mason jar sign could stand up on its own.

You could also paint the mason jars with chalk paint.  I was going to paint them in spring colors but my daughter thought the clear would be better for year round! 

Then add some flowers and enjoy your new mason jar sign!

I really like how your project turned out! It'll be so easy to just switch out your florals to match the season. I've used Cricut's stencil vinyl a few times and love it, though I got the best results by using one of those foam pouncer brushes.

Thanks Marie! I think I will try the foam pouncer brushes next time. I use those sometimes but always get a different texture but they work well for helping with bleeds!
