Materials List

  • Red and yellow card stock
  • White card stock
  • Printer
  • Red felt
  • Mason jar
  • Blue spray paint
  • Red spray paint
  • Adhesive runner
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun
  • Cricut explore (optional but helpful)


  1. Paint your mason jar blue with the spray paint and allow to dry.

  2. (If you have a Cricut explore, see the link for detailed instructions for the “T” graphic and the lid insert)

  3. Create a graphic for the front out of card stock and attach using an adhesive runner.

  4. Cut a piece of red felt about 7 inches long and a little shorter than the jar is tall. It should go from the neck of the jar to almost the bottom.

  5. Use hot glue to put the felt cape on the painted jar. I gathered the cape on both sides when gluing.

  6. Use additional hot glue to put the “T” logo on the front of the jar.

  7. Paint the band of the mason jar lid with red spray paint and set aside to dry completely.

  8. Draw a circle the size of your lid and make it red. Then add letters that read “Teacher you are my hero!”

  9. Add it to the lid (no glue needed) and screwed the entire thing onto the mason jar.
