  • Tissue paper, the same color as the fruit you want to make
  • Scissors
  • Mason jars
  • Decoupage glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Yarn
  • Acrylic paint
  • Felt
  • Permanent marker
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Battery-operated tea lights or fairy lights


Step 1

Cut the tissue paper into small pieces of square making sure to cut enough to cover the inside of the mason jars nicely, then remove the lids of each jar, and using a paintbrush, coat the inside of the jar with decoupage glue. Using the same paintbrush, carefully pick up and place the tissue squares one at a time into the sides of the inside of the jar, then continue to do the same process filling in every space until the jar’s interior is fully covered.

Step 2

Brush the tissue inside the jar with more glue, then set the jar aside, and allow it to dry completely. Draw fruit markings on the exterior of the jar using a permanent marker, then paint the jar lids, and set them aside to dry. Get the felt, then cut out the matching leaves of each jar, and attach them to the top of the jar lid with hot glue. Once everything is set and dry, insert either a battery-operated tea light or fairy light inside the jar, then close the lid, and display it anywhere you want.
