Use Mod Podge fabric decoupage medium to cover an old jar! This is a budget friendly way to use up fabric scraps – and it’s easy to do.
Hi guys! It’s Ashlee from My So Called Crafty Life, and today I am here to share a fun and easy covered jar using Mod Podge Fabric decoupage formula! I have been reorganizing like crazy around my house.
I had this simple glass jar I keep my cotton balls in on my vanity, and decided it needed a facelift. The fabric I used was actually a scrap from a vintage “old west” bandana that I had. I love vintage western items and this jar tops all for me!
Fabric Covered Jar
Here’s What You Need:
- Glass Jar
- Mod Podge Fabric
- Fabric Scraps
- Paint Brush
- Marking Pen
The first thing you need to do is measure your jar. You will need to decide how tall you need your fabric to be by how long it will need to be to wrap around the jar plus a little. If you have raw edges you will want to iron them over, so make sure you add a little extra for folding.
So now you need to mark your dimensions on your fabric. Then trim the fabric to the correct size.
Fold the raw edges over towards the wrong size and iron the raw edge down. Now paint a little medium in the fold of the folded under edge and press the fold down and smooth it out.
Next, paint a thin layer of Mod Podge Fabric onto the glass jar. I painted a little section first instead of the whole jar.
Lay your Fabric end onto the medium on the jar and smooth the fabric out making sure it is straight and centered. Then, paint a little more medium on and smooth the fabric onto it, do this all the way around and then add a little more medium on the fabric where the ends overlap.
Now paint a thin layer of Mod Podge Fabric Medium onto the backside of your ribbon. Smooth the ribbon around the jar lid. To finish off your jar, glue a little trinket onto the top for decoration.
I love my little jar now! It is really fun and it looks fantastic on my vanity shelf. I think I may have to move my Dream Pets Bull over next to it since they go together so well!
I used a scrap of vintage fabric, but your could easily use any kind of fabric you have laying around. You can really customize this project to your taste just by the fabrics and trinkets you use for the top of the jar.
I think it would be really cute to use a cute knob on the top of the jar too. So, if you have an old storage jar lying around, grab some Fabric Mod Podge and some scraps and add a little style to your organized space!
