Mason jars are so versatile! I love using them as vases, and a cute way to hold different odds and ends. Both of these jars took between five and ten minutes each. I also have some helpful hints!
I bought these two jars from Michael's for $1.50 each. Honestly, you can do anything and everything with mason jars. They could be drinking glasses, a holder for makeup brushes, or a vase.
All you need is a little tube of white paint. You pour some into the bottom of the jar and swirl it around, slowly adding more as needed. I left my jar upside down overnight, but I would suggest flipping it over after a half hour or so. Next time I will wipe off the excess paint around the brim to get a nice, clean finish.
For the glitter jar, I just used masking tape to create a barrier. All you have to do is use a foam brush to paint on a layer of Mod Podge and then sprinkle some glitter on.
A helpful hint: take the tape off before the Mod Podge dries. I wait over night and had to use a box cutter to cut the area between the tape and the glitter.
I picked some bougainvillea today and these little flowers found a happy home in my new mason jar. The painted one is where I now keep my buttons. Let me know if you try this so I can see all of your lovely creations.
