Step one: Pour a generous amount of yellow glass paint into the mason jar. Replace the lid and shake the jar to cover the inside with yellow paint. Remove the lid, and hold the jar upside down to let the excess paint drip out. Let the mason jar dry.

Note: To make the paint permanent, you can let it air dry for 21 days or heat set it in the oven. Follow the manufacturers instructions on the bottle. Keep in mind that the paint, even when heat set, is not food safe.

  1. Hey Morena, Love the Minion jar!! I believe I can figure out how you made it. Since I’m not always on the ball, is there a tutorial on how you made it. Thanks so much for sharing. Love ya’

    • Patricia, I don’t know why the entire post didn’t publish! I’m so embarrassed! I had it all ready and then when I saw it this morning I was mortified that only one image had published. Yikes! Thanks for alerting me…the full tutorial is up now!
