I LOVE mason jar crafts. I think it’s because mason jars are a perfect canvas for just about anything once you know how to prep them for crafting. One of my favorite things to do with mason jars is to turn them into cute pen and pencil holders like these animal themed jars. Since I love rainbows, I thought it would be fun to paint a colorful fruit theme for this mason jar craft. Rainbow Fruit Mason Jar Craft Pen HolderFruit Mason Jar Craft Supplies (affiliate links provided for your convenience):

  • Step 5: Go over the pencil sketches with paint markers. For the paint markers be sure to shake them well before using and always test them first on a piece of paper. Rainbow Fruit Mason Jar Craft Pen Holder
  • Step 6 (optional): Honestly I don’t always seal my mason jars, but if you do, it can help protect against fading and chipping. You just need to decide if you want a matte or gloss spray sealant.
