roses Easy DIY Painted Mason Jar VaseA little while ago, I picked up a vintage style blue mason jar at wally world. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it at the time. I only like drinking out of the wide mouth jars, but I do love to put flowers in my regular mason jars. We had bought some white mini roses for Mother’s Day, and I thought they would look sweet in the blue jar. I wanted to spruce it up a little, so I decided to paint it. Now it totally fits my style!

Here’s What You Need:

*Mason Jar

*Washi Tape or Painters Tape

*Paint

*Paint Brush and Foam Dabber

Instructions:

First, run a strip of tape around the middle of your jar. Press it on firmly so no paint will seep through.

Paint the bottom half of your jar. Let it dry and then put another coat on. Paint the metal jar lid ring too.

Once your base coat is dry, you can dot it. Put a little of your dot color paint onto a plate or a piece of foil and spread it out into a thin layer. Dip your paint dabber into the paint and then dot the dabber onto your jar. If the dot looks think you can dab a second coat on.

Remove the tape and let the jar dry. Once dry, you are ready to fill your vase with pretty flowers.

mini roses Easy DIY Painted Mason Jar VaseThis little vase looks so sweet on my table! I made one for my grand mother in law too. This is such an easy way to update a plain mason jar! You can really change up the look with the colors you choose and the patterns. Adding a little ribbon around the lid would be a sweet touch as well. There are so many ways to decorate mason jars, including painting them. This has just been the way I did mine. I hope you all will give it a try some time, you’ll love it too! I’ll be back next week with another DIY for summer. Until then…

Happy Crafting!
