Tutorial: How to paint Mason Jars

Tutorial:  How to paint Mason Jars (inside)


You will need:

1. A mason jar

2. Valspar’s sample paints from Lowes

Step 1:  Make sure your jar is clean and dry.

Step 2:  Pour a bit of paint inside your jar, not too much, you can always ad more paint.

Step 3.  Close your jar tight, then swirl it around slowly until the entire inside of the jar is covered.

Step 4:  Open your jar and turn it upside down on a piece of newspaper, and dry overnight.

Step 5:  Your jar is done, use as many colors as you want.  You can use it to store a lot of pens, pencils, brushes, rulers, etc.

As a flower vase, use a small paper cup and fill with water, arrange your flowers and put it inside the jar.

Make sure you don’t spill water. Valspar's has a lot of beautiful colors.  You can mix and experiment with the paints.  Have fun.  I made three jars of mason pint size, and one of a quart size.

Hope you try this great way to display your jars.
The "callas" came from Trader Joes.
