This makeover for a dollar store item is both easy and quick. I often see products at a dollar store that I know I can give makeovers to and have them go with my decor.
That’s what I did for these mason jar shaped decor pieces. It’s a budget friendly craft idea for St. Patrick’s Day.

For the most part, I like to keep any St. Patrick’s Day Decor pretty simple without a lot of sparkle. These mason jar plaques makeovers turned out great for a subtle nod to the holiday.
St. Patrick’s Day Mason Jar Plaques
I’ve had a couple of these Christmas mason jar shapes from Dollar Tree in my craft stash for a while. I’ve been meaning to do something with them and St. Patrick’s Day turned out to be just the right time to use them.
This is such a simple makeover that I only needed a couple of items for the makeover. A paint scraper and water work great to remove the paper that is attached to the jar shape.
I held the shape under running water and used the scraper to push it off of the shape.
I worked in small sections, wetting it and then using the scraper until all of the paper was removed. I left the top part of the paper that mimics the jar lid.
Using Waverly Chalk paint in Celery, I gave it two coats of paint, allowing it to dry between each coat.
Before adding the shamrock, I gave it a coat of Dura Clear Gloss Varnish. The shamrock is a cupcake topper that I had in my craft stash. The pick pulled out easily from the shamrock and I used a tiny dot of hot glue to attach it to the plaque.
Using only a tiny dot of glue means that I’ll be able to remove the shamrock after St. Patrick’s Day and leave the plaques out for spring decor.
