Since choosing the word ‘Family’, there were six jars to paint. Pick your favorite Metallic Paint colors and brush on 2 – 3 coats, letting each layer dry fully. I used Sapphire Metallic Paint for the F, Copper Metallic Paint for the A, Teal Metallic Paint for the M, Olympic Gold for the I, Antique Copper for the L, and Hunter Green Metallic Paint for the Y.

While the Metallic Paint coats are drying, create a page of letters to finish the front areas of your mason jars. I used the CopperPlate Bold at 151 and printed the letters from a Cricut. You can also purchase ready-made letters from your local craft store.
