Since none of the projects I have been working on lately are turning out as planned. I decided to make a quick and SUPER easy craft using Mason Jars! I have been playing around for the first time with chalk paint and loving it! So with Fall right around the corner, I decided to make a cute fall decoration utilizing my new favorite paint! These chalk paint mason jars will fit perfectly next to the chalkboard sign on my front porch or on a shelf inside. They turned out so stinkin cute though, that now I can’t decide where I want to put them 🙂
- 4 Mason Jars
- chalk paint
- craft paint
- flowers (I used artificial. If you saw my post on my succulent planter, you saw that I don’t ever keep my flowers alive 🙂 So artificial is PERFECT for me!)
- sponge brush
Painted all the mason jars with one coat of annie sloan chalk paint in old white, and applied with a sponge brush.
I wanted the jars to have an antique/distressed look, so once they were all painted and fully dry I sanded some parts. I love the look it gave them!
To make painting the letters on easier, I taped stencils to the jars, then painted them with acrylic paint in a pretty metallic brown color.
Added some flowers and whallah! I have cute Fall Mason Jar Vases!
I absolutely love how these turned out! They will fit perfectly on my front porch with my welcome sign or somewhere else in my home! What I love even more is how SUPER easy they are to make and how they add the perfect amount of Fall to your home!
