Since Twinkle Twinkle Little Star has become a popular party theme recently, I wanted to share a little star mason jar project that is great to go with the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star party theme and can be used as a centerpiece, candle holder, or a baby room decoration.

If you need star stencils for any of your craft or party projects, I have 46 different star templates you can print out for free.Opens in a new tab.

This project is one I’ve made for the DIY Blog Challenge where we pick something to use each month to create something beautiful.  This month we chose jars.  Be sure to see what my friends Lianne  and Denise made at the end of the post!  Now let’s get started on how to make these Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Party DIY Mason Jars.

  • Pink tulleOpens in a new tab. 6″ spool
  • 5/8″ light pink ribbon
  • Hot Glue
  • Hot glue gunOpens in a new tab. (this is my favorite glue gun because it stands up perfectly and prevents glue drips)
  • Extra fine gold glitterOpens in a new tab. (extra fine works best to get the definition of the stars)
  • Spray sealerOpens in a new tab. (I love this one because it dried in only 5 to 10 minutes)
  • Star DecalsOpens in a new tab. (I highly recommend using vinyl stickers/decals.  Paper stickers will get stuck to the glass and be difficult to remove.  I used 1 inch vinyl star decals that I cut with my Cricut)

Here’s how to make your Tutu Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Party DIY Mason Jar:

  1. Place the star stickers randomly on the mason jar.  Be sure to change the angle of each one to get a more random pattern.

    Randomly place stickers on the jar.
  2. Spray the jar on one side with sealer and sprinkle glitter on to cover.  Continue with the other sides of the jar.  You probably won’t get full coverage with this coat.  So don’t worry if there are spots you can see through.
  3. Allow to dry for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Spray a 2nd coat of sealer and sprinkle glitter.  This coat should create a solid layer.  If you have any bare spots, spray a bit more sealer and sprinkle more glitter on.
  5. Allow to dry for 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Tap the jar to knock off excess glitter.
  7. Spray with sealer to seal the glitter and prevent it from shedding.
  8. Allow to dry completely.
  9. Remove the star stickers to reveal the glass underneath.  If you have problems finding where the stars are, hold the jar up to a light or look into the inside of the jar to see where they are.  Use your fingernail, a toothpick or needle to get the sticker loose.

  10. Measure a length of ribbon that will wrap around the mouth of your jar plus a little extra.  You’ll be tying this in a knot later.  So leave enough extra that you will be able to do that.
  11. Cut approximately 5 inch strips of tulle.  You’ll probably need about 50 strips.
  12. Lay out your ribbon.
  13. Make a loop with the tulle and place it behind the ribbon.  Pull the tails through the loop and pull tight. Slide each one up to the previous

  14. Continue with the loops of tulle until you have enough of the ribbon covered to go all the way around the jar mouth.
  15. Tie the ribbon in a knot around the mouth of the jar.  You should have a tutu.
  16. Cut a length of ribbon and tie a bow.
  17. Trim the tulle to even it up for a nice full tutu.
  18. Hot glue the bow on the front of the jar above the tutu.These tutu mason jars are perfect for your princess or ballerina birthday party or a twinkle twinkle little star or wish upon a star baby shower. Easy cheap diy decorations for girls who love pink and gold!

  3. Allow to dry.
  4. Spray a 2nd coat of gold paint making sure that the entire surface is completely covered.
  5. Allow to dry and you may have to hold the jar up to a light to see where the stickers are or look from the inside to find them.  Remove star stickers to reveal the glass underneath.
