Looking for a fun, easy Summer Solstice craft? These free printable Summer Solstice jar labels make for a great project!

For me, Midsummer (or the Summer Solstice season) is a time to appreciate wildflowers! And they make great gifts!

Its about daisies and dandelions and clovers and all of nature’s colorful little gifts that some muggles think of as “weeds.”

In my neighborhood, we’re expected to keep our lawns mowed (for some unfathomable reason). However! I’m fortunate enough to know of a hill nearby where the flowers are allowed to grow to their hearts’ content, and with gratitude in my heart, I like to take a walk there around Midsummer and gather a few of those gifts.

In the spirit of gratitude and abundance for the Summer Solstice season, I bring you this fun tutorial, combining the magick of the Air Element (of words and technology) with the magick of the Earth Element (of home, hearth, and the magick of nature).

In this DIY Summer Solstice craft, you will learn how to age regular white copy paper to transform a simple black and white printed design into an enchanting rustic jar label.


Step 1: Get your free printable jar label design.

Next, just print your labels and cut or tear them apart (there are two to a sheet). In the pictures you’ll see that I added extra text to mine to personalize them, but don’t worry, yours won’t have our names on it lol!

Step 2: Wrinkle the Paper

Ball it up and carefully and then flatten it back out again. You can do this twice for an extra rustic look and feel. Then place it into an oven-safe pan.

Step 3: Stain the Paper

Pour coffee or black tea over the paper and swoosh it around for a minute or so until it’s somewhat soaked, then pour the liquid out. The paper should cling to the bottom of the pan.

Step 4: Dry the Paper

Pop the pan into a low heated oven (under 300 degrees farenheight) until the water evaporates. Depending on the size and strength of your oven, this should really only take a couple of minutes. So keep an eye on it, because you don’t want to burn it! You can tell it’s ready when it lifts from the pan and has slighly browned edges.

Step 5: Glue the Label Onto A Jar

After they cool, glue the labels onto your choice of recycled sauce jars with a glue gun. You could probably use any type of glue, but this got the job done for me!

Step 6 (optional) prepare the water

Just a little witchy tidbit: crushed willow bark added to your bouquet water has been said to keep your flowers fresh for longer!

Step 7: Pick your flowers and arrange your bouquet!

Go for a nature walk and look for wildflowers to pick! This is the fun, summery part of the project! Be aware that it’s illegal to pick wildflowers in some areas, and that some plants can irritate your skin, so just be mindful.

I also like to make sure I’m not picking all of the flowers! I try to take less than half the flowers from any one plant so that it can continue growing and/or others get to enjoy them too! The excemption being areas that I know will be mowed down soon. Migiht as well pick as many of those as possible!
