Stenciled Mason Jar Vase {For Mother’s Day!}

I love Mother's Day.  Being a mother is the most important part of who I am!  I owe so much to my incredible Mother...  She taught me everything I know.

I was thrilled to participate in Plaid's Mother's Day Campaign.  They sent me a whole box full of crafting goodies to create a beautiful and meaningful gift for my Mamacita!  Here is what I came up with:

I created this stenciled mason jar vase with burlap and bakers twine!  Each flower has a very special meaning because each one represents a member of our family.  (More on that later!)

I love daisies.  The name of my blog is no accident.  Daisies equal happiness for me!  I thought these would be the perfect way to express our appreciation for my Mom, a true flower enthusiast!

It was like Christmas morning when I ripped open this package of amazing supplies from Plaid's Martha Stewart's craft line.  Talk about creative inspiration in a box!  There was acrylic paint, glitter, all sorts of stencils, a heating tool, a spray painting kit, every kind of brush I could imagine, a sweet tote bag, and all sorts of stenciling accessories packed inside.

 

I even created a "haul video" showing the entire crafting stash as I opened the box.

** For the record, I set up the tripod and taped myself while mr. oopsey was out of town.  I felt a bit awkward!  I'm still new to vlogging, but if you want a tiny sneak peek of the new house, maybe focus on the background instead of me!  Ha!

 

For this particular project, I wanted to try out the spray painting kit.  Hello!  Turning acrylic paint into spray paint just sounds fun.  So I gave it a shot! This was shockingly easy!

I carefully followed the directions on the sprayer kit to mix the correct proportions of the gloss spray medium with acrylic paint.  Then I simply twisted the sprayer onto the bottle.  Easy, right?

I found the trick to spray painting with this sprayer was holding it very upright.  Once I figured out that little trick, the rest was easy peasy.  It dried quickly and sprayed evenly.  I gave the mason jar 3 good coats in my favorite shade of aqua.

I decided to choose from these beautiful flower stencils included in my package.  I had a difficult time selecting which stencil to use.  Aren't they all lovely?!  I love these stencils.  They peel on and off just like stickers with no budging during the pain process at all.  And you can use them over and over!

Originally I had planned to stencil the jar.  But... oopsey daisy!  After the paint dried, I attempted to peel off the adhesive stencil, and it stuck to the paint on the jar.   It actually started pulling up the paint.  So as with most of my projects, I invented a Plan B!

Spur of the moment, I found some burlap.  (This in and of itself was a miracle considering the state of my craft room!!)  I just started stenciling flowers on a strip of burlap.

I wrapped the burlap around the jar and secured it with some Baker's twine.  I must say--I think I like Plan B even better than Plan A!

I purchased 11 daisies (50% off at Michael's!)--one for each member of our family.  I cut the stems and placed them inside the jar along with some marbles.

I have asked all 11 members of our family (my Dad, all of my siblings, and all of the grandchildren!) to write my Mom a brief note expressing why they love her.

Here's my note!

I just rolled my note around the stem of the daisy.

All done!  I love the colors of this project!  

I can't wait to see what sweet little notes my family members write about my Mom.  I know she will love reading the notes most of all!

I hope my Mom likes this gift!

  7. Alison,

    I LOVE what you created here and the meaning behind it all! I didn’t realize you loved daisies as well, I thought the blog name was more about “accidents” so it was fun to learn they are your favorite flower too. I have always loved them, they look like smiles to me, I even carried them in my wedding! People thought I was being cheap, but they really are my favorite flower.

    I love that you added the detail about why you each love your mom to the stems of the daisies. I agree, it will be her favorite part. A few years back, I made a jar for Mom for Christmas that had 52 slips of paper in it, all with things I am grateful to her for. Each week, she would open one and get to see another reason why I love her! It was, and still is, one of the best gifts she ever got. It didn’t cost me a penny and it brought her so much joy.

    You have done some really amazing things with the goodie box from Plaid. I am glad they sent it to you and appreciate that ou let us know how things work. I want to try that sprayer that lets you use acrylic paint as spray paint! I also think those stencils look beautiful. Are all the items available in stores already or are they being tested and then released?

    Thanks for another great idea and I love the color combo ou came up with!

  8. BTW, I just watched you vlog and I thought you did a great job showing everything. I enjoyed getting to see and hear you, and also getting a glimpse of the new place. Good job!

  9. Your video turned out GREAT, Alison! You look so cute in that hat~I love it! What a fun craft package…Christmas in April is right! Your mom is going to treasure her gift! It is SO pretty and meaningful! Love the color and the burlap:)
