Mason Jars, chalk paint, and succulents have been haute on the scene these days. I first feel in love with cute painted mason jars in pastel colors when I seen them on Lolly Jane and The Crafted Sparrow blogs. So when I was thinking up St. Patrick’s Day ideas I could not wait to give this cute project my own little spin!


Just by trimming off the bottom of a cupcake liner you can take a simple liner and make it a super cute jar ruffle.


All you’ll need is a few muffin liners, (there are so many cute ones out there) and a pair of scissors.

  • Fold muffin liner in half twice
  • Cut a half moon, snipping off the bottom of the liner.
  • Slide the circle over the mouth of the jar, sliding down to where you’d like it. Repeat, adding a small amount of adhesive if desired (I didn’t, but you might like it to be a bit more permanent).
  • Embellish.


To embellish the jars you can paint them in a cute color of choice, add some May Arts Ribbon in coordinating colors (I used Jumbo Pom Poms, and green chevron), and create a cute tag using some of your scrapbooking goodies.


I don’t think succulents are seen as lucky, but they are too cute not to love (plus super low maintenance). If you could find potted clover it would tie this St. Pats project together perfect!

Thanks for inviting me to join in on the SCT fun today for "Craft It Monday"; I can’t wait to see everyone at Crop & Create Markham this weekend!  I'll be hosting a super fun make n' take with May Arts ribbons!
