- Rip pieces of masking tape and place horizontally along the bottom edge of the glass jar to make your first row. If it is a curved part of the jar make the pieces a bit smaller. Where the jar is less curvy you can make the pieces a bit bigger.
- Overlap the pieces of tape as you complete the first row. When you start your second row overlap each piece over top of the previous row. It doesn’t have to be exact but try to line each row as you continue to work up toward the top of the jar.
- When you get near the top, this is a good time to cover the rim of the jar with the masking tape. Tear off a piece of tape and place it vertically on the outside starting where the rim begins. This is the part that will have the ridges for the lid to be screwed on the jar. Smooth the tape over the ridges and loop the tape over the top rim into the inside of the jar about 1/2 to 1 inch. Again, overlap each piece of tape as you work around this top row covering the top of the jar.
- Finish your last row by horizontally placing the tape around the jar. This row will cover the edge of the vertical row you just made and finish off the taping quite nicely.
- As you place the masking tape on the jar, smooth out any wrinkles and make sure the edges are pressed down securely. But again, it doesn’t have to be perfect. The beauty of the vase also comes form the texture created by the masking tape.
- Paint over top of the masking tape. If you use varnish, it will take a good 24 hours to dry.
- Apply one or two coats of Mod Podge.
