Welcome to the June Craftily Ever Challenge!! Whether you stumbled here on accident after a long day of interneting or if you heard that there might be something cool going on and wanted to see for yourself OR if you have been counting down the days until this very moment, I’m glad you’re here. I am so excited to be hosting a crafty challenge that takes things to the next level. You might remember THIS post, where I explained where and why I got the idea for this little challenge of mine.
This month’s challenge theme is PATRIOTIC! I’m lucky enough to be sponsored this month by Expressions Vinyl. They are a company I have worked with in the past, and I am always blown away by their customer support, lightning fast shipping and the high quality of their product. I received a $30 gift card from them to get started on some fun projects and I can’t wait to show you what I made!
I started off by creating a rectangle shape 12″ wide and 4″ tall. This is the perfect size to wrap around a quart sized mason jar. I then added a bunch of star shapes and stripes. When I was done, it looked like this.
Then I cut out my vinyl and attached it to my jar. I followed up with some of my favorite chalky finish paint. I painted the stripes red and the star area blue.
Once it was dry I peeled off the vinyl and was left with an awesome patriotic jar. I added a tea candle into the bottom, and it was just the right amount of patriotic flare to add to my table decor!
