Patriotic Mason Jar Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)






Mason jar decor continues to be very popular.
Adding some patriotic stars and stripes to mason jar cookies is easy and fun.


There are many mason jar cutters available to purchase.
One of my favorites (and the one used here) is the tall and thin mason jar cutter from Ann Clark.


Outline and flood the cookies with red and/or navy glaze as seen below.



Allow the cookie to dry overnight.


Using Americolor Bright White color gel, paint on stars and/or stripes to the mason jars.
Perfection is not expected since this style is rustic and random. :)
(I apologize for failing to take a photo of the painting process.)

Personal Side

Another full week.....seems that's becoming a common thread.
Thankfully the week included cookies. :)

Believe it or not, I made Christmas cookies.
Before you completely freak out, let me explain.
My sister who lives in Florida is coming for a visit.
This is the first time she's been here in 5 years!
My local sister wanted to celebrate Christmas while she was here......
so of course, I was asked to make Christmas cookies.
So no......I'm not THAT far ahead in my cookie making for the blog! haha

It was fun to do Christmas cookies in the summer.
The holiday always brings such joy.....so even emulating it with cookies brought joy.
I did some tutorials for later, so it will be a while before you see the fruit of this week's labor. haha

Today, all my sisters are getting together for the first time since my oldest sister passed away in 2011.
I'm so excited for us to spend time together.
We're going to travel today to see an Amish community.
If you know anything about me, I love their primitive and simple country style.
So I'm excited to shop for fun decorations......and be inspired for my upcoming autumn cookies. :)

Primitive Heart Patriotic Bunting Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)







A patriotic bunting is a perfect decor to add to an Independence Day celebration.
And with this long heart cutter from That's A Nice Cookie Cutter,
it's fairly easy to make one with cookies.

You'll need to cut four long hearts and bake them sitting side-by-side
in order for them to fit well together after baking.



Once the cookies are baked and cooled,
outline and flood 2/3s of the bottom portions of the hearts with navy glaze.
Outline and flood the very top of the heart lobes with red glaze.
(see photo below)



Allow the glaze to dry for at least 2 hours.
Use a mini star cutter to impress the top middle of the navy glaze as seen below.



Outline and flood the uncovered portion of the hearts with white glaze.
Add a star with white glaze using the outline from the cutter impression done in the prior step.
(see photo below)



Allow cookies to dry overnight.
If desired, brush some dry caramel luster dust over the hearts to give it a rustic look.
