DIY Colored Mason Jars
Looking for a fun and easy way to spruce up your home for summer? These DIY Colored Mason Jars are super simple and can easily be made in one afternoon!
What You Will Need:
Mason Jars (various sizes)
Spray Paint (in gradient shades)
Gloves (to protect those pretty fingers)
To begin, make sure that all of your mason jars are clean and dry. If you are using new mason jars, there’s no need to wash them prior to painting. Place the jars upside down (open end down so you can spray the bottom and the sides at the same time) on an old surface that you don’t mind getting spray paint on. (I would not use newspaper to protect your surface, the paint tends to stick to the paper.) In a well ventilated area apply your first coat of spray paint. Spray paint in even strokes, careful to not get too much paint on the jar to prevent runs. After the first coat is dry, apply second coat. Repeat these steps until the entire surface has been evenly covered.
For this project, I used mason jars in various sizes and painted clusters of the jars with each color. The possibilities are endless!
These mason jars were part of my lounge design at Salvage. The girls of ICE hosted a DIY Mason Jar Competition at the event, so I thought it would be fun to bring a colorful twist on the everyday mason jar into the Salvage Lounge. They’re bright, simple and full of hand-crafted charm.
