  1. First, we are going to create the little shape that isn’t painted. This allows you to see what’s inside the jar! This is the really fun part because you can literally customize it how you’d like. I like to use cookie cutters as a template. All you need to do is take your cookie cutter, or an image that you printed online, and trace it onto label paper. Once you trace the image, cut it out using a pair of scissors. Peel off the back and stick it in the center of the jar, making sure to press hard around the edges so paint doesn’t creep in.
  2. For glass you should use enamel paint. You’re going to want to paint this on with a sponge brush. Once you’re done painting, carefully remove label. Then you’re going to want to place jar in oven to cure, just like clay would. Follow instructions on the back of the paint bottle in order to know what temperature and how much time.
  3. Now for the fun part-to add the detailing. This is really where you can get creative. Just take some puffy paint and get creative.
