Need ideas for decorating mason jars so you can't see inside?

Need ideas for decorating mason jars so you can't see inside? Topic: decorated writing paper
June 17, 2019 / By Daryl
Question: I am planning a trivia game for my daughter's birthday party with multiple choice answers, each written on top of a mason jar, and the correct jar has prizes or treats in it that you get if you pick the right answer and get to look in the jar. So, I need to decorate the jars in some creative way that makes them look pretty and fun for the party, but also completely hides what's inside. I could wrap the jars in paper, but that would only work on the straight-sided portion of the jars, leaving the curved top and bottom exposed, which won't work. So, any other ideas? Easy ideas are best, because I'm not a super crafty person and I don't have a lot of time left! Thanks!

drop a tablespoon or two of paint (a color that won't allow one to see through it) inside the jar, rotate the paint around & around in the jar so it coats it. Let it dry...add additional coats if necessary. Or...you could paint the outside of the jars if that would be easier. make sure the paint is completely dry before attaching the lids. You could cut paper to size (circumferance of jar) and make it a cylander & put it on the inside of the jar instead of trying to attach it to the outside (maybe tape the paper to the inside of the jar?). that's about all I can think of without straining the ol' brain. good luck.

You may be able to find at places like Wal-Mart, Family Dollar, Big Lots, Sams and Ace Hardware; however, during canning season//at other times may be hard to find and my concern there is would only be finding ten cases that match An online site had these and their descriptions, not knowing if you want the jars to have the traditional Ball Mason jar design on the front of the jar///which I only found in the pint 16 ounce size at ten cases of 12 each/ $115.60 (Ace Hardware price was $109.90) Only two designs in the 1/2 pint (8 oz.) size 1/2 pt. (8 oz.) in the Legacy series has the word Legacy across the front and at ten cases/12 per case would be 120 jars total of $83.50, which I would order at least ten cases if ordering online in case of possible breakage during shipping and perhaps more once you finalize your guest list 1/2 pt. (8 oz.) Ball emblem on front is a fruit design with ten cases/12 per case for a total of $83.50***fruit design??? 16 ounce jars with handles were quantity of 120 for $265.25 Consider the number of ounces of liquid in each size if serving with or without ice, 16 ounce pint would hold approximately 10-12 ounces liquid with ice. Consider by pouring a 12 ounce soda into the 16 ounce jar to determine how many ounces of liquid/type you need.

What about this, roll colored paper into a tube and slide it in the jar, cut to almost the top of the jar. That way you can change the color if you want or use the jar for canning later if you want. To cover the bottom before you slide the paper in cut a piece in the same shape a bit bigger than the tube and drop it in, the tube will hold it in place. No glue or tape required.

Go to your local hardware store and by a can of Rust-Oleum Frost ed Glass spray. It works great. Spray it on the outside and decorate how you want and you won't see in at all. http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=106

Decorative niches can make an incredible 3d statement. Are yours lighted? A faux finish to them is incredible in any case. The metallics and marble effects can really embolden the area. http://mjpfaux.com/nov_2004/Images/Venet... http://www.fineartdecor.com/fadimages/fa... Not knowing the dimensions of your niches makes it hard to think of something that is not a flower or a sculpture. Also not knowing your overall design scheme. But I'm guessing you want to do something "different". So be prepared for off the wall answers. 1. Victorian hats. http://www.gentlemansemporium.com/webima... 2.
