Start by finding a stencil you like, print it, and cut it out.

If this is your first time cutting out a stencil you will want to do something basic.

Step 3: Tape Stencil to Jar

Wrap the stencil around your Jar and tape it.

If you are worried about the paint getting on other areas of the jar, tape another piece of paper over the exposed spots.

Dont worry if you have pieces sticking up. You can hold them down as you spray or paint.

Step 4: Spray Paint Time

Spray Paint your stencil.

Hold down the pieces of the stencil that are popping up.

Try to spray one area at a time until the entire stencil is covered.

Dont over spray or your stencil will run.

Step 5: Removing the Stencil

When you are finished wait for the spray paint to become tacky before removing the stencil.
You can wait about 15 minutes if you want.

The stencil will come off easier if you wait a bit or blow dry it a little.

Use a Q-Tip to fix any areas that may have smudged.
