Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Maison jar
Step 2: Create a Design
Think about whether you want your label to have words/pictures if you are going to do a large number of jars keep it simple. The jars I got had a lip were a label would go so I copied the shape. The jars I was doing was for a wedding so I put the couples initials and the date, I also intended to do a border but some of the jars do not have the border due to me forgetting.
Step 3: OPTIONAL-Design and Print
This step is optional, but if you are doing a large number of jars create your design on a computer so you can print it instead of doing 100 or more by hand. Trust me not where the hand cramp.
Step 4: Cut and Glue
Cut out your labels and glue them using a fine layer of glue to the jars. Smothe the label in place and add another layer of glue to the front of the label. Leave till completely dry.
Step 5: Gloss/Waterproof
Find a waterproof gloss, waterproofing the label will allow the jar to be washed without worrying about the label falling off. I used a clear boat gloss. Give it a fine even coat, allowing time to dry between. let them dry in a warm place free of dust.
Step 6: Drink Up
So that's how you customise your jars, now Go Enjoy.
