Easy DIY Unicorn Mason Jars

Making these Mason Jars is very easy. I have made a few of these before, and my girls love them. Actually, they enjoyed helping with the craft. They especially like painting the mason jars. 

Actually, I use my Unicorn mason jars as a vase for my DIY Paper Flowers and place it on a shelf. They are so cute to look at. 

This easy DIY Unicorn Mason Jars

You don’t need to be a skillful crafter. This is surely an easy peasy craft that will turn out perfect, regardless of your skill level.

All you need are some large mason jars, 2 to 3 of them. If you have them in your cupboard then that would be great. But you can easily buy them in most supermarkets really cheap too.

Then, a jar of Mod Podge. Any variety will do, though I chose the glossy finishing one.

Then, some Paper Napkins with the Unicorn designs. I put the link below where I found some. They’re not exactly like the one’s that I used, but will work. And a white acrylic paint to cover the jar.

You will also be needing a paintbrush, of course.

Materials and Supplies to Make Unicorn Mason Jars

To begin with, clean the mason jars and dry them completely. Just to make sure they’re dry, you might want to leave them on the cabinet for an hour or so.

Paint the mason jars with the white paint and allow to dry completely. there’s no need to paint it perfectly or evenly. You can just paint the surface once or twice, or make a criss-cross kind of stroke.
