Decoupage Mason Jar Pumpkin

Decoupage Mason Jar Pumpkin

DIY Tutorial by Sierra Powell


  • Smooth-sided glass jar
  • 1 Collage Jewelry Kit OR tissue paper, school glue, paint brush
  • Beads, sequins, ribbons, any other decorations (optional)
  • Tea light candle

*As always, these are just guidelines to get you started–feel free to experiment!

  1. Choose the colors/patterns of tissue paper you want to use.
  2. Cut out or rip up pieces of tissue paper into small (1-2″) pieces.
  3. Apply a thin and even layer of Artterro glaze to your jars using your foam brush.
  4. Start laying down pieces of paper on your containers, gently smoothing any bumps or creases with your fingers. *Try layering different sizes of tissue paper, and overlap the paper in order to thoroughly cover the containers.

  1. Cut out a face or other design in a darker contrasting color and decoupage that on.
  2. Once you are finished laying down paper pieces, and are satisfied with the look of your pumpkin, apply an even layer of Artterro glaze over the entire piece. Make sure you cover the entire surface with glaze to seal it. Don’t worry, it dries clear!
  3. Decorate the jar however you want by gluing on beads, sequins, ribbon, or anything else on hand.
  4. Put a tea light candle inside and enjoy the festive glow!
