Trans­form a lack­lus­ter ma­son jar into a com­po­si­tion-book look-alike for your teacher friend, col­lege-bound stu­dent, or your­self! First, use white primer to paint a large patch on the front of the jar. Let dry be­fore cov­er­ing a 2" x 1¼" por­tion of that patch with washi tape. Paint the rest of the jar us­ing matte black acrylic paint and let dry. On the side of the jar, tape off a ver­ti­cal strip to rep­re­sent the note­book spine. With a fan brush, gen­tly dap­ple white paint all over, cre­at­ing a mot­tled ef­fect. Care­fully re­move all the washi tape. Use a fine-tip brush to paint thin black lines on the front white rec­tan­gle.
