Mother’s Day was just this past week, but aren’t you already thinking about Father’s Day?! If you remember, our craft for Mother’s Day entailed turning a mason jar into a photo vase. (You can view that tutorial at ) We hope you held onto your mason jar lid – you’re going to need it for this craft!

You will need:

  • Mason Jar Lid (2 pieces)
  • Photo of you and Dad
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Super Glue
  • E6000
  • Magnet (available at Walmart)

To Begin:

  1. Print out an image of you and your Dad together – you may have to adjust the size so that it’s small enough to fit within the diameter of the mason jar lid.
  2. Once you have the right size photo, lay your mason jar lid on top of the part of the image you wish to cut out. Holding it down with one hand, use a pencil to trace around the lid with the other.
  3. You should be left with a circle surrounding you and your Dad. Using your scissors, cut out the circle you just drew.
  4. Place the photo aside. Next, use super glue to attach the two pieces of the mason jar together so that they don’t come apart. Squeeze together and allow time to dry.
  5. Next, add a few drops of super glue to the inside of your mason jar lid. Align and place your photo inside.
  6. Flip over your mason jar lid, using a small amount of E6000 (an industrial strength glue) attach a magnet to the center of your lid.
  7. Allow time to dry.
  8. Attach to your fridge or gift to that special father figure in your life!

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate all Moms all across the world. From new mothers to the most experienced of mothers, the bond a mother has with her child is certainly special. If there’s any way to cherish mom, it’s to always remember her – even after Mother’s Day! This DIY Friday, we will be making a memorable photo vase in honor of Mom. Use it to decorate or even gift to that special Mom in your life! Happy Mother’s Day!

You will need

  • Mason Jar
  • Vinyl/Sticker
  • Photo of you and your Mom
  • Floral Foam
  • Fake Flowers
  • Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Scotch Tape

To Begin

  1. Begin by placing your vinyl sticker on the outside of your mason jar. Preferably use a square or circle sticker. The size of your sticker will determine the size of your photo frame.
  2. Choose yours or your mom’s favorite color(s) to paint the outside of the mason jar however you choose. Make sure to paint over the sticker and cover all of the edges!
  3. Allow time for this to dry.
  4. Using your floral foam, cut it to fit into the mouth of the mason jar. Push it to the bottom – we will use this to stick our flowers into to keep them from moving around.
  5. After your jar has dried, peel back the sticker or vinyl to reveal a small window. This window will be your photo frame!
  6. Print and cut out your photo to fit the vase window. Using a small piece of tape, tape your photo to the inside of your mason jar with the image facing out.
  7. Using plastic flowers, cut and arrange however you like. But you don’t necessarily have to stop at plastic – re-pot a real plant to your mason jar to liven up your Photo Vase.
  8. Enjoy your Mother’s Day Mason Jar Memories!
