When I updated my Project Ten Can on Tuesday I mentioned some large 22oz jars that I had saved for a Silhouette Cameo project. I’ve been working on Christmas cut files for quite a while, but I don’t do a lot of decorating for Thanksgiving. I wanted to make a little centerpiece for my table this year, though it won’t likely be on the table for Thanksgiving dinner as we’ll need all the space we can get!

With my empty jars, a roll of patterned contact paper from Dollar Tree, a roll of clear contact paper from Dollar tree (already had these laying around), some sparkly pine cones glittered up from the Christmas ornaments area at… um.. Dollar tree ($1 for a pack of 6, I bought a pack of red and a pack of gold) and a can of Krylon Gold Leaf (do buy in store, so far I can’t find it at a reasonable price online, but in craft stores they have tiny cans for about $2-$3) I was all set.

This was so easy. Once the design was put together I simply cut it out of the patterned contact paper using my Silhouette machine, used the clear as a transfer medium, peeled the clear off leaving the patterned as a stencil, sprayed (from about 2 feet, lightly until covered), peeled and let set up.

Yes, I taped pieces of paper towel around the stencil area to keep the rest of the glass unpainted. No, it didn’t really work. A bit of paint seeped through, but since it was far enough from my design I didn’t have to touch the design to clean it up, it wasn’t much of a problem. For the second jar I just used a bigger piece of contact paper so it covered the height of the jar.

I think this was my first time EVER using a spray paint, and I’m kind of hooked on the idea now! It was so much easier and faster than anything else I’ve done.

In the spirit of giving and sharing the bounty, I’m happy to offer these free downloads for personal use.

About EchoStenger.com

EchoStenger.com began in early 2013 as a side project of Echoia.com. Namely, Echoia Photography. Wanting to expand to include more varied content, it seemed only appropriate to change the site's title.

It currently is an outlet for many of my interests and passions. I share my work in and write tutorials for Adobe Illustrator, review products (mostly purchased by me), experiment with my Silhouette Cameo machine (hashtag vector in flesh!), share my day-to-day and still post photographs on a regular basis.

Thank you for visiting and coming along with me as I grow and seek out beauty in everything.

I am a Christian mom, girlfriend, dog-mom, cat-mom and pseudo step-mom. I take up hobbies faster than I can put them back down. I am from Texas, but currently reside in Utah.

I. Love. Air conditioning.

Fiona Apple.

Angel : My seraph son. I’ll likely speak of nothing and no one so much. Born October 2009. He likes the color orange blue and almost anything Marvel.

Veda : Black. Lab-like. Born Summer 2008. A life changer. Full name and title: Princess Darth Veda Jane Sultanfuss Stenger. Usually just Veda/Veda Jane when she’s bad. Also ‘Monster’. In your way? Just say, 'Scoot, Veda.'

Trinity : Rescued from the pound about 9 weeks of age, Summer 2009. I call her ‘Wiggle Bottoms’, 'Dummy' (lovingly, of course) or ‘Little Bit’. Big time cuddler.

Li : Dog cat. Scarier than both the dogs put together.
