Mason jars continue to be a common staple shape in the vintage, shabby chic, & rustic genre. Here's four different ways to decorate them.
After you have cut, baked, and cooled the mason jar cookies, paint them with diluted autumn colors like lemon yellow, orange & chocolate brown. These gels were diluted with almond extract.
Allow the gel to dry on the cookie. Outline and flood a wide swath of the jar with gold glaze.
(see photo below)
Allow the glaze to dry for 3-4 hours. Use a burlap texture mat on the partially dried glaze to create a burlap-look.
Add dots and lines of white glaze to the edges of the "burlap" to create a lacy border.
Outline and flood the entire jar with a glaze color of your choice. Allow the glaze to dry for 2-3 hours and then press a mini cutter into the partially dried glaze. Use that impression outline to create a cute autumn shape on the front of the jar.
Divide the jar into three portions and outline and flood each part with the colors of candy corn.
Once the cookie is dry, you can tie bakers twine around the jar and tie it in a bow.

Outline and flood the jar in your choice of glaze color. Outline and flood the lid with grey glaze.
Attach the mini cookie to the jar with bakers twine.
