Mason Jar Earrings and Dollhouse Mini Mason Jars

Mason Jar Earrings 

and

Mini Wooden Dollhouse Mason Jars




Hey ya’ll!
I usually don’t do these type of posts, but here are some miniature, dollhouse mason jars I’ve recently been tinkering with.
I have also made them into cute Mini Mason Jar Earrings too in my Etsy shop!

When I ran across a listing on ebay for these plain, unfinished, adorable little wooden mason jars, 
I knew I wanted them.  
I just didn’t know what for at that moment.

Well, today, about a year later, I got them out and thought it’d be cute to make some tiny little dollhouse type food for the cupboards. 
And then also made a few Mini Mason Jar earrings too.

I know that dollhouse miniatures are a very popular thing, I just haven’t really ever gotten into them.  
But give me tiny mason jars and I’m there!

So here was my idea.
I just went into Word and Paint on my pc and tinkered around and made some tiny little word labels.


I couldn’t get them to print out small enough, so I eventually had to copy them on my printer/scanner/fax and then resize them.  
I think I tried a 75% first and then eventually had to go down to a 49% to get a good fit.

 I gathered up some supplies:
-Mod Podge
-Scissors
-A Paintbrush


And then I just cut each one out. They were tiny! And I use some Mod Podge to glue them on and an extra coat to seal the outside.

 
And then just let them sit and dry. And wa~la!
Here they are.
 
If you look pretty dang close, you can see I tried to make some green beans, carrots and tomatoes in the right hand corner.  

To kind of give them a different look to make a set of 4. 
The fourth one, I just left plain to say Ball.
I am not sure my usual, craft peeps will be interested in these, but hey, maybe take this label idea and use it on larger items?

I  listed these in my Etsy as earrings.  
And here is a few pics of that:
 Now available in my Etsy shop



Happy Crafting ya’ll!
See ya next time,

WOODEN MASON JARS

I haven't really tinkered with anything like this before.  But with little jars, I'll do something with them or burst!

Happy Crafting ya'll!
