Spring Mason Jar Crafts

Springtime is my favorite time to begin decorating. I think it’s because of the stark difference between winter when everything is cool and plain and ordinary looking until the hot weather comes and with it, all the bright colors and fresh flowers.

Everything looks clearer and happier this spring. There’s really nothing I love more than to bring that sensation of a fresh new spring inside.

DIY Painted Mason Jar

A short time ago, I had a vintage blue Mason jar at Wally World. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do about it back then. I just like to drink from wide-mouth jars, but I like to put flowers in my regular Mason jars.

We had purchased mini white roses for Mother’s Day, and I thought they would be sweet in the blue pot. I wanted to make it a bit more beautiful, so I decided to paint it. Now it fits my style perfectly!

What you need

  • Mason Jar
  • Washi Tape or Painters Tape
  • Paint
  • Paint Brush and Foam Dabber

Instructions (step by step)

First, stick a tape through the middle of your pot. Press firmly to keep the paint clean.

Color the bottom half of your pot. Let dry and apply another layer. Paint the metal jar lid ring too.

Once your base coat is dry, you can dot it. Put some of your dot color paint on a plate or piece of foil and spread it out in a thin layer.

Dip your paint pad into the paint and then point the pad to your jar. If the dot seems to think you might be able to swab a second coat.

Take off the tape and let the jar dry. Once dried, you are ready to fill your vase with lovely flowers.

Aqua Striped Mason Jar

I actually started out painting two jars; one didn’t make it. It was so terrible, and I ended up dumping it. And I must say, I feel pretty guilty. What a waste of a jar! But I painted it with homemade satin paint, and it didn’t look very good.

So I attempted to remove the paint with sand, and it was a huge mistake. I had to call the time of death on that one. But I have learned a valuable lesson that I will share with all of you. An old, flat painting is the way forward. Never mind the fancy things.

What you need

  • jar
  • two colors of craft paint
  • Sponge brush (a regular brush will also work, but a sponge brush is a bit smoother)
  • painter’s tape
  • sandpaper

Instructions (step by step)

OK, so it’s really easy. I did not use a primer; I went straight to the first paint color. I began by painting my pot with three coats of aquatic paint.

To get nice clean lines, seal the edges of your painter’s strip by painting over them with a coat of your first color. When I pulled out the tape, I had to do some minor touch-ups, but not as much as I expected.

And that’s it – I have a happy, striped jar!
