This shutter flower holder is a pretty DIY project to decorate with this spring!

I found these adorable little shutters at Habitat for Humanity and snatched them up. Their size is perfect for home decor craft projects. I used one shutter to make patriotic decor. And I used this one to make a pretty piece for spring.  I’m participating in Craft Week, so keep reading to check out the other projects and to learn how you can enter for a chance to win some great prizes!

Paint over the dried Crackle Medium with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Remembrance. The paint will crackle almost immediately.

Paint the mason jar with multiple applications of Americana Chalky Finish for Glass in Whisper.  Brush on a light application of paint and let it dry completely before adding the next layer of paint.  Continue until you’ve achieved the desired finish.

sanding tool on mason jar

Use a sanding tool to gently sand the raised areas of the mason jar to remove the paint.  Use a soft cloth to remove the paint dust from the jar.

Wrap the neck of the jar with twine.  Push the ends of the twine through the shutter and tie them in a knot on the back.  Make a loop with the excess twine and use that to hang the completed project.
