DIY Typographic Pencil Jar

I love adding my own personal touch  to my desk space. This is one more thing to make me smile during my work day.

What You Need:

How to Make It:

Thoroughly clean and dry your glass jar. I used an alcohol sanitizing wipe.

Spell out your phrase with the letter stickers. Make sure they are straight and even.

If using a spray, you’ll just want to spray a couple coats of paint over the letters, making sure to dry completely between coats. I used a frosted glass paint because I had some at home and it is not nearly as clean as a spray would have been, especially with my thick stickers (I just loved the font). Add a little paint to your pouncer and dab it straight onto the jar. You’ll have to press really hard to get the paint into the tight corners of the letters, which will inevitably lead to bleeding.

Let it dry so that it’s tacky and clear away as much of the bleed lines as you can with a cotton swab or toothpick. You may then want to define the edges a little more. You can dip a toothpick or detail paintbrush into your paint to outline, or just use the fine tip of your paint if it has one.

Once everything was dry, I used a craft knife to scrape away any paint that had bled and leftover adhesive from the stickers.

Pay attention to curing instructions for any of your craft paint. Try to be careful with it until it is fully cured, but you can use it “write” away!

Fill up your fun jar with colorful pens and pencils and smile whenever you see it!
