The Perfect Mason Jar Centerpiece for your Easter Table

Spring mason jar centerpiece

 

Want a unique idea for your table this Easter? Try dripping colored resin onto jars for a cute spring mason jar centerpiece. I have three different methods for dripping that will get you three different results. Pick your favorite and make as many mason jar crafts as you would like!

Supplies needed to make this Mason Jar Centerpiece:

STEP 1:  Raise the jar

I added my mason jar to a plastic cup, as shown below. This lifts it off the surface, allowing any excess resin to drip off. I used paper plates under these to protect my table. NOTE: You want these to be cups you are okay throwing out as they may get ruined.

STEP 2:  Mix and color resin

Measure and mix your resin according to the package directions.  The crystal doming resin is perfect for this project because it mixes thick and will cling to the side of the Mason jar.

Split it between as many cups as you have colors. Add a bit of opaque resin color to each batch and mix well. This project does not take much resin. If you have another project, like a paint pour, this is perfect for small amounts of leftover resin.

STEP 3:  Add to the Mason jar centerpiece rim

The first method for dripping your resin is to add tiny drops to that top rim and allow them to drip down. You can blend a few colors slightly as you work your way around the jar. This is best done with a wood skewer or your stir stick.

The second method is to drip slightly more resin around the edges and blend it with additional colors. Do this by dripping a second or even a third color right on top of your first drip. I found a popsicle stick great for this method as I wanted larger droplets.

You can see these two different methods once completely dripped below.

Don’t worry about how the colors combine on your Mason jar centerpiece.  That’s part of the fun of making this resin project.

STEP 4:  Mix the colors in a cup

I felt that not everyone would have the patience to drip individual colors, so I decided to try the third method for those with no patience. Get an extra measuring cup and pour resin of various colors into the center. This creates a rainbow effect in your cup.

Then, hold this cup to the edge of your jar and slowly pour while turning the jar. With this method, you will get more on the jar; however, it will blend way more. Your colors will be harder to distinguish with this method.

STEP 5:  Let the resin cure

Whichever method you choose, allow your jars to cure completely upside down.  You can wipe away any excess epoxy resin while wet or break it away from the rim of the jar once dry.

I am partial to the first or second version, but I wanted to include all three if you love the third one.
