Country-Style Luau Mason Jars

Designed by Cindi Bisson

Summer is here and it’s time for backyard barbecues and parties! It’s a perfect time for me to share these Country Style Luau Mason Jars I’m using to hold silverware and straws for our country style backyard luau!


  • Ball Mason Jars – Heritage Green pint size (you could use regular – but I love the combination of the green glass with the red & yellow – seemed more tropical to me!)
  • Red Burlap
  • Westcott® Titanium Bonded® Non-Stick Scissors, Self-Healing Cutting Mat
  • DecoArt® Americana® acrylic paint – White Wash
  • Small paintbrush
  • Yellow ribbons (I used 3 different styles)
  • Wood Attitude® printable craft film
  • Computer & printer
  • Wooden tags, string
  • AdTech Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Glue stick


  1. Use cutting mat as a guide to measure out 4″ x 11″ strips of red burlap – cut with scissors.
  2. Use small paintbrush and white acrylic paint to paint hibiscus flowers onto red burlap (I found an image of a hibiscus flower online to use as a guide).  Let dry.
  3. Following manufacturer instructions, type and print Hawaiin words onto sheet of Wood Attitude® printable craft film (I googled Hawaiin words, then printed off words to create a custom message on my tags….. can you figure out what the message says?)
  4. Trim words and mount to small wooden tags using glue stick, add string to tags.
  5. Fray edges of painted red burlap by removing threads about 1/4″ in on top and bottom edges.  Wrap around mason jars and adhere with small amount of hot glue.  Add decorative ribbons to top rim of jars, tie on wooden tags.
