{Painted Mason Jars}

You might know that I’m in LOVE with
mason jars…

and now to feed my addiction further I’ve started
painting them
and have fallen even deeper in love

{no worries - I don’t think my hubby is at all jealous of this crush!}

Wanna make some?

How to Make
SHABBY DISTRESSED MASON JARS:

You start off the makeover by painting a jar black
(go look through your spray paint and I bet you’ll find at least some old half used can of black – or 7 cans like me!)

then once that dries, cover it with another color of your choice - here is a pretty cream spray paint

and then sand it up a bit

and you’re set

easy right?

what wonderful results!

I included one in my prairie cottage mantel display

and have sold some in the cute little shoppe I sell at

but I’ve HAD to keep some for myself

  10. I'm in love with those jars too...great idea to do the layers of colors and sanding. I had trouble with my solid ones because the spray paint got runny. This will fix that...thanks for sharing!! Love them on your mantel :)

  12. Such a great idea. So often we miss the underlying patterns on clear glass jars.
    Thanks for sharing your how to.
