I got these jars at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago as I wanted to recreate this look from Pottery Barn.
First step is to wash the jars and dry them really well. Then create the stencil. This was very easy with the Cricut. I simply typed out the numbers and made sure to press FLIP. I used freezer paper and placed the shiny side down on the sticky mat. I used medium for both settings, and 2" for size.
Carefully peel the stencil off the mat- I wasn't careful enough and the three ripped a tad.
Place stencil on the jars with tape. I used painter's tape because we have some around the house since my husband is painting the living room, but you could use any type of tape.
Then using your preferred type of paint, color in the stencil. I used an acrylic paint in black. I tried to smudge the edges a bit on purpose to give it a more rustic look.
Let the jars dry and fill! I'm not sure if this is what will go in them forever, but it works for now since they are going on top of the cabinets in the kitchen.
