Craft: Mason Jar Painting

I've seen a lot of crafters painting mason jar's white and off white. Well I wanted to paint it, but not those colors. So I got my mason jar and my paint.


I poured a good amount of paint into the jar as you can see. I wanted that pretty blue color as it's one of the colors in my living room area. It's very calming, but still happy.


I put the lid on the jar and and turned the jar on the side, upside down, and shook it to coat the whole jar. It takes a little bit, and you might have to add a bit more paint. I also painted the lid white and distressed it.



So here is my finished mason jar! I got some twine and a button. Then I was searching through my junk drawers for something "vintage" to add to this. So I found this old tag used to hold a key at the auto shop. I also ran across these plastic letters and numbers. I taped the number 9 to the tag, because it's my favorite number. Then I put the button & tag on the twine and tied it around the lid. 

Stay tuned! I'm going to show you where this lovely jars new home is, which includes another craft & up-do.

  3. This looks great! I've been nwanting to try this with nail polish in some funky colors. The La Choy Sweet n Sour bottles remind me of little milk bottles and I'm wanting to do some of these in a BRIGHT yellow.

    If anyone is looking for blue jars, we try to always keep them in our Etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/cherishedhearts.

    Thank you for sharing!
