I like to start by painting the jars.
Seasonal colors can make a mason jar look even nicer!
You can also add embellishments to the jar.
Jute twine can be tied around the jar for example
Or, you can simple paint some detailing on the jars.
What kind of paint should you use to paint a mason jar?
There are two kinds of paint that I prefer for a project like this one.
Certainly, not every kind of paint can cover a glass mason jar evenly.
For this project we are using chalk paint.
Acrylic paint is another kind of paint that would work with this project.
I also have an option for using a metallic paint for these jars.
Tips for painting mason jars.
My biggest tip is to make sure that your mason jar is clean before painting it.
The paint needs to be able to stick to the jar and dirt can hinder this process.
More tips for you
- Avoid using a glossy paint. This is because things such as odd brush strokes will show better with a glossy paint.
- When painting the jars, attempt to keep the strokes as even as possible.
- Allow the paint to dry entirely before moving on with the next step. This will help prevent any mishaps.
Personalize your painted jars.
This is a simple project that is easy to do.
However, you can certainly personalize it too!
Try one of these ideas.
- Paint the jars blue for Hanukah.
- Use a permanent marker to add a design or a name to the outside of the jars.
- Use the jars as gifts for others and personalize them for that!
