Here's how to create Mason Jars Inspired by Fruit:

Super excited to show you what I will create from mason jars and tissue paper! I love to use Tombow’s MONO Aqua Liquid Glue as a decoupage medium.  I wanted a transparent finish on glass jars, so tissue paper was the perfect solution!  Gather your supplies and let’s get started creating Fruit Inspired Mason Jars!



To begin the Fruit Inspired Mason Jars, place a dollop of Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue on the Tombow Blending Palette. Grab an old paintbrush and coat the outside of a tiny mason jar.  Apply torn pieces of red tissue paper all over the jar, coating with additional MONO Aqua as you go.  No need to be accurate, just tear and apply!

NOTE:  Make sure that you are using color-fast tissue paper since the MONO Aqua is a water-based glue. This will prevent the colors of tissues smearing and mixing on your project. I used packages of two-toned colored tissue that I found in the gift wrap section of the dollar store.



Repeat with a medium mason jar, applying light green tissue paper to the bottom third of the jar.  Dark green to the bottom quarter of the jar.  Attach random pieces of bright pink tissue to the top two-thirds of the jar. The largest mason jar is decoupaged with light and medium yellow tissue.  Then tear triangle shapes in a dark yellow tissue to give depth.  Let all three jars dry, which doesn’t take long, as the MONO Aqua sets up quickly!



Apply dark green tissue around the neck of the yellow jar and green triangles around the neck of the tiny red jar.  Brush on a top coat of MONO Aqua to seal each jar.  Don’t worry, the MONO Aqua goes on glossy but dries to a nice satin finish.



Once dry, grab the Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker to add the details, with the fine tip draw a loose, shaky grid around the yellow jar and with the broad tip add tiny arrows in the center of each diamond.  Draw dots with the broad tip on the tiny red jar, and teardrop “seeds” on the bright pink jar.



To finish the Fruit Inspired Mason Jars, wrap the neck of each jar with jute twine, tie in a knot and add a decorative button with Tombow Xtreme Tabs, which are perfect for attaching buttons because the tabs are super strong!

I just LOVE the way that these mason jars turned out.  Sweet summer fruits – a tiny Strawberry, a wedge of Watermelon, and a regal Pineapple!

Fill these jars with tealights and watch them glow in the evenings on the patio; add spoons, forks, and knives for a backyard barbecue or fill with nuts, candy, and snack mix as the perfect hostess gift!  They would even make a fun addition to your studio filled with Tombow Dual Brush Pens, Markers, and MONO Drawing Pencils, the possibilities are endless!
