Who doesn’t have old Mason jars in their cupboard? Well, these days, Mason jars are not only used to can food. As a matter of fact, the things you can do with Mason jars are endless. Today I’ve decided to show you how to make Painted Mason Jars. It’s a really cheap, easy and beautiful way to decorate for any occasion. Whether it’s for a wedding, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, or just to brighten-up your house for spring, it’s a great and pretty idea.
It’s so simple to do; First, I used acrylic paint that I already had on hand, and gave the Mason jars two coats of paint, letting each coat dry completely. Then I used a nail file (you can use sand paper), and rubbed over the writing on the jars to gently remove the paint. It’s that simple! You can then decorate the painted jars with burlap cord and paper flowers.
I can’t wait until spring comes, and my first tulips come out. They will look even more beautiful in those jars.
Look how nice my mantel looks now, perfect for spring and Easter.

Great idea! And funny timing – I was JUST talking to my godmother yesterday and she gave me the idea of painting mason jars whenever I give gifts of homemade hot chocolate mix / pickles etc. at the holidays. How convenient that I now have something to refer to! Thanks for this 🙂

I love the colors you choose! I really need to make some of these- just keep putting it off!
I love mason jars and other jars! I have lots of jars of buttons in my craft room and have been thinking about finding some unusual jars to put on a shelf in my front room that is in front of a big stained glass window! I thought the sun coming in the window and hitting the jars would look cool!
These are so pretty! I need to make some for my mantle. Thanks for sharing with the Frugal Family linky!
