Mixed Media Santa Jars with Yulianna

Hello Gang! Yulianna Efremova here and I’m so excited to be with you for another year as a Lindy’s Ambassador.
For this month’s project, I’m going to show you how to make a Mixed Media Jar “Santa” perfect for Christmas or with a little tweaking, New Years, that I’ve colored with Starburst Sprays from Lindy’s.  Now, this is so fabulous because it gives you a chance to use up all those beautiful backgrounds and paper scraps you have collected during the year and all you will need to do is borrow a spinner (fidget spinner) from one of the children.   Let me show you how!

The layers of paper were covered with a mixture of sprays, I’ve used Starbursts: Fiddlehead Fern Green, Delphinium TurquoiseAlpine Ice RosePrima Donna PurpleAutumn Maple Crimson, Yellow Rose of Texas  and Moon Shadow Mist: Bucket O’Blood Red to create my jar.

You could create a similar piece with your favorite colors for almost any occasion during the year.

I wanted to make it easy for you to make something like this yourself, so I’ve filmed a video so you can see just what to do to make this at home.


  1. Twist the spinner (fidget spinner) and pour on a bit of spray color (Starbursts, Fabios or even Moon Shadow mist sprays) create beautiful fireworks (you might want to wear an apron for this part).  Leave to dry.
  2. Use an outline of a jar as a template and cut out jar shapes from your background, add ink to the edges
  3. Glue on Santa Claus picture
  4. Cut a piece of plastic sheet to cover the jar and create a pocket.  Sew around 3 edges and leave the top open.
  5. Add sequins, beads and glitter into the jar
  6. Sew completely around the plastic sheet (so none of the embellishments fall out) and to seal the top.
  7. Tie cord around the top of the jar to look like twine around the lid
  8. Contour glitter to create volume inside the jar
  9. Done!
