I love painted Mason Jars. They are so easy, and so versatile. I painted these jars, distressed them with a sanding block, and hit them with a coating of Mod Podge. I’m going to use them in my new craft room (reveal coming soon).
Let me know what you think. 🙂
I used some Martha Steward paint in sweet, spring colors, as well as a little Ivory acrylic paint. I did a couple coats of the paint, letting them dry between each coat.
Then, I used a sanding block to distress them a little, and sealed them with Mod Podge. On a couple, I added a little glitter after a coating of Mod Podge.
I actually found all the jars at Goodwill. I paid a few cents each, brought them home & washed them. When I decided to create a new craft space for myself, I realized how handy it would be to use these for storage.
Some of these sweet little Mason Jars will hold all the tiny punched paper shapes I have, as well as some of my favorite pens. I’ve also punched lots of tiny Mason Jar tags in different colors and textures. They fit perfectly in a jar!
I have oodles of broken and discarded vintage jewelry pieces, and I have plans for each one. I love them so much. Until I use them I’ll keep them in one of the Mason Jars.
I love the distressed, chippy goodness. A few of them I painted inside as well just so there would be a different color peaking through the sanded spots. This is such a fun craft because you can’t mess it up! “Flaws” are part of the charm.
On a few, I coated the inside with paint, and then a thicker layer of Mod Podge. While it was still wet I poured some chunky glitter inside and sort of rolled it around.
If you loved these, we hope you’ll share. And, if you make your own painted Mason Jars, let us know! We want to see pics!
