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 🙂

Fall Mason Jar Vases final


  • 4 Mason Jars
  • chalk paint
  • craft paint
  • sandpaper
  • 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!)
  • stencils
  • sponge brush

Painted all the mason jars with one coat of annie sloan chalk paint in old white, and applied with a sponge brush.

step 1

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!

step 2


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.

step 3


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!

Are you looking forward to the Fall or are you holding on to summer as long as you can?

So this year I decided to update these already fabulous fall mason jar vases!  Come take a look at what they look like now and get all the details HERE.

    I always tell myself I am going to paint some cute mason jars, and then I never do! These ones are so cute, so perfect colors for fall! The chalkboard is a great addition as well!

    I LOVE this!! I tried a similar version but with black chalk paint. I love the white so much more for pops of color. So this is for sure on my list of crafts for fall!!! Now I just need the weather to COOL down here!!! Thanks for sharing:)

    1. Tara Post author

      Thank you, Stephanie! Unfortunately the weather has already started cooling down here 🙁 We have had rain the past couple of days and chilly nights. Not sure I am ready for fall weather but I am ready to decorate for it 🙂

          Did you check the link that I shared that has a list of available suppliers in your area? It is only sold in select retailers stores, it is not available in big box stores. Check out this link to see if there is a retailer near you. If no luck there, you can always use a different chalk paint. They sell DecoArt Americana Chalky paint at Home Depot and Michaels. Hope this helps and you can find some.

    I was wondering…. I have a rustic looking wood frame. Do you think that chalk paint would work on that?

    I am also a fan of chalk paint but have not tried painting jars with it. You have inspired me to try it. Your fall jars are so cute! Thanks for the idea. It looks easy enough.

  58. Michele

    Hi Tara
    Can you tell me if you waxed the jars after you painted them? I thought you had to seal the paint?
    Also, have you painted glass tea lights/glass candle sticks before. I have the same question – Can I wax the tea lights or will the wax melt when the candle is lit?
