Rae Dunn-Inspired Mason Jar Utensil Holders.
I know I say this all the time …
but this may be my favorite mason jar craft I’ve created.
Rae Dunn pottery has been speaking to me for awhile now.
I mean, who can resist those spindly letters?
As I made this project … and got more and more excited at how it looked … my daughter commented that these Rae Dunn mason jars are so me.
They fully captures my aesthetic.
And these were so, so easy to make!
And yet I avoided moving forward on this project because I thought it would be my Dunning-Kruger effect moment.
Luckily (aside from the giving the first batch of jars two coats of spray paint disaster*) it all worked out okay. And much easier (and more satisfying than I thought!). 🙂
*spraying a second coat of spray paint on top of the first coat cause the first coat to bubble up. Not sure if this is a glass jar specific problem.
How To Make Rae Dunn-Inspired Mason Jar Utensil Holders
Rae Dunn-Inspired Vinyl Letters (1″ Tall)
*includes affiliate links.
Spray paint mason jars in gloss white. One coat only.
Don’t try to give them a second coat. It will just bubble up. A mess. Trust me on this!
Let dry completely … and I meancompletely … before proceeding to next step. I gave mine a week to cure.
Get your Rae Dunn-inspired letters. I custom ordered these 1″ letters from an Etsy shop. They come perfectly spaced out on a sticker. But each letter is an individual vinyl sticker.
Use Washi tape as a guide to keep your words/letters straight. Apply gently to avoid the tape pulling up the paint.
I used a measuring tape to make sure the left and right ends of the tape measured the same from the top of the tape to the bottom of the jar.
Attach the sticker with the letters.
My Rae Dunn vinyl came with a plastic credit card-like piece of plastic that I used to rub over each individual letter to make sure it adhered to the mason jar.
Gently remove the clear plastic top covering so that each individual letter is directly attached to the jar.
