Glass Jar Typography

Here is my latest article for Project Wedding. It’s the easiest thing ever. I just used little glass jars (old yogurt jars) and then used a $5 paint pen that is made just for painting on glass to create a little typography masterpiece. These would also be cute with votives hanging on a string. See all the directions and sources right here.

    These are GORGEOUS. Have you put printed examples on the inside to trace from? I could no way do that from eye. Definitely a great idea for party name places xox

    Really love that!

    And I am so obsessed with the yogurt jars over there I might have to hop on a plane with the one intent of bringing some of those home.

    (also could be fun to mix this up with the SYTH tinted mason jar diy?)

    Dear Jordan,
    I’m a young reader from Brazil and I really wanted to congratulate you! This is pretty much my favorite website ever, and my grandma is also absolutely astonished by it – when she lived in the states, she used to do this sort of thing (decoration for children’s parties) and she always tells me that you can make pretty things out of almost anything no matter where you live.
    Is this your calligraphy or is it a pre-made font? If it’s a font, would you tell me where to download it?
    Thank you so much for bringing a little joy in this little moments,
