I know it may seem that the lace on this jar is real, but I have to tell you that it’s actually painted on. When I painted it this morning and showed it around to my friends, they couldn’t believe that the lace was actually paint and had to go and touch it to make sure.

What I love about this craft is not only its simplicity in elegance, but the fact that anybody can do it. These Martha Stewart silk screens and paints are a brand new product that was introduced to the Craft and Hobby world this past year. I have had the luck of working with this product for a while now and I wanted to share this beautiful Rosh Hashanah craft with all of you. The Gold’s Duck Sauce jar is the perfect container for honey. It’s just the right size for storing in the cupboard and bringing to the table.

Enjoy!

Supplies:

Martha Stewart Opaque White Glass Paint

Martha Stewart Silk Screen Antique Lace

Martha Stewart Squeegee Set

Step 1:

Clean you your glass jar and take off the labe. Dry your glass.

Step 2:

Notice that you are given 4 different designs. Choose which silk screen you would like to use. Cut the design out of the paper.

Step 3:

Take the backing off the glass. Lay the silkscreen with the sticky side down onto the glass. Press down and make sure there are no air bubbles.

Step 4:

Squeeze a small amount of the white paint onto to the silk screen. Using your squeegee spread the paint over the silk screen making sure to cover the entire area.

Step 5:

Lift the silk screen off the glass and clean any left over paint with your fingers. Let it sit for 2 hours.

Step 6:

Bake in an oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or let it air cure for 21 days.

To see a great demonstration on the process of silk screening please watch this video.

    How clever! I love the idea! There are endless options with this one and I can’t wait to make some. Great job Abbey.

  2. I am not quite sure how I happened to encounter your DIY – Painted Lace Honey Jar, but being Jewish and being in South Loop Chicago as a companion I was searching for Jewish enlightenment….and I am always doing similar projects at home with my kids (I have 10)! Being so close to the high holy days and being a teacher, this was truly a wonderful encounter! Thanks for sharing!! But… I’m still lost in So. Loop[ Chicago…

  3. I am visiting Chicago for the first time and seeking Jewish community…any ideas?

    I LOVE this idea…Martha Stewart has come out with some really clever product lines. I would also love to try this on jars of homemade jam and preserves that I give as gifts!

  7. I love how creative this is! This post may very well inspire me to do some crafting. Beautiful way to brighten up the Yom Tov table!
