MASON JAR JAM And JELLY MAGNETS


I'm in love with anything Mason jar style!  And I've made various Mason jar magnets before, (links at end of this post.) And for all ya'll out there that are too, here's another Mason jar craft, refrigerator magnets.

I had won this set of 12 down in a box lot of wooden craft supplies at the auction for somewhere around $4 or $5. And I really got my moneys worth. It is still full of items.

You can find these at Walmart for $4.48 or any craft supply store.

These are actually wooden tags meant to be used for gift tags I think. Or to tie on to Mason jars when you give them out.

 They come in two sizes, 6 large and 6 small.

First, I just laid them all out.

 Gave them a first coating of paint to try out colors. (Which the blue I hated by the way!)
 The red I was really liking.

Then I got out my antique white and a stiff bristled brush (a toothbrush works best) and spattered some paint on to give that cool spatter wear look.
  I was now starting to like the blue a little bit more.

 But as always, red and white is usually my all time favorite.
 It's just so country looking to me.

And then I got out my fine paint brush and starting dabbing on some label looking words.
Thinking along the lines of these being filled with jams and jellies.
 And of course, being as how country I think, I had to write FARM FRESH EGGS on one:
 Then just stick in some fruity looking dabbles.
I did a strawberry, blueberry and a grape below.


 Ready for the magnets now.

These are the magnets that I really like.
  And with refrigerator magnets, I always use the E-6000 glue found at Walmart. It makes a super strong hold that lasts forever.
 Just glue it on and let them sit a while.  This glue does require about 24 hours to get a super strong, forever hold.

But after sitting overnight, I usually go ahead with the project.


And to top off the fronts, I went back and tied a bit of homespun fabric in a tiny knot to cover the hole. Just glue it on.

And here they are ready to be packaged up:






These turned out pretty cute, I think. 
Here they are in the packages.

I made up the packages out of bakery bags, tags printed on Avery Print Online:

 and scrap booking paper backs:
I placed a bit of tape over the cutout to keep the magnets in place

I might price them for around $1 each or maybe $1.50 each? I dunno yet.

See ya'll soon,
