DIY Mason Jar Vases
These DIY Mason Jar Vases are super cute, & super simple! Make them for decorations in your own home or they’re also perfect to give as a handmade gift!
Am I the only one who sees the beauty in a mason jar? I adore them.
And I love decorating with them! There are really so many different things you can do with them if you use your imagination.
Today, I’m going to share one of my favorite things to do with them. Turn them into vases!
This is seriously the simplest project ever. All you need is a mason jar & spray paint. You can use any kind of mason jar that you like, but I think the Ball mason jars are the best for this.
Take your clean mason jar, and spray it with your favorite color of paint. My favorite is aqua blue, I just love that color! It’s such a happy color 😀 I usually spray on 2 coats.
Once your paint is completely dry, you can just leave it as is. But I prefer to lightly scrape off the paint on the embossed lettering on the jars. I think it gives it that great final touch.
Take a knife (I used a butter knife) and carefully scrape off the paint on the lettering. Like so.
When you’re done, just pop some flowers inside and that’s it.
Good Morning! You are not alone when it comes to mason jar appreciation. I remember finding them in my grandparents attic when I was little, I thought they were wonderful, in an odd way almost sacred. It must have been the history flowing from the glass into my young little hands. I loved the feel of them, from the weight to the raised letters. They didn’t feel like the glass bottles I was accustomed to. I am from the generation before the food grade plastic invasion. I think it is great how the mason jar is no longer considered just for food storage anymore. They have been upgraded to tasteful and homey decor by not just DIYers but by manufacturers as well. It just goes to shows when something is good it will always stand the test of time. Have a wonderful day!
