Oh, I do love me some mason jars…they are so versatile, and can be used in so many ways. I’ve used them to store various spices, glitter, paint, and even as a vase. I made this little cutie last year when I was redecorating my Breakfast Nook, and now that we are working on giving Kate’s room a new look, I decided it was time to make a few more. She wants her room to be a big girl cottage style, so mason jars will fit in perfect! I am making a few mason jar vases to store her hair brushes, craft supplies, and who knows what else. Because she has so many girly things, I want to make sure her room stays organized. These little painted jars are just perfect for girly organization! Here is how you can make your own mason jar storage containers…
You will need some paint and glass mason jars. I bought paint samples from Lowe’s for mine, but you can use acrylic paint if you like. This time instead of buying the Ball brand jars, I bought Walmart’s generic version.
Start by pouring paint in the jar. If you want to take your time swirling and twirling your jar around, use less. If want it to go a little more quickly, use more and pour back into the paint container once the all of the glass is covered.
I like to use less paint and swirl it around slowly…just make sure to cover the entire inner surface.
Now flip your jars over and place them on a few layers of paper towels to drain the excess paint.
I placed my paper towel on top of a piece of wax paper so the paint wouldn’t leak through onto my table.
You can’t necessarily use these vases for real flowers, but think of all the other fun uses.
