Patriotic Mason Jar Vases- Tutorial by House in the Heights
http://houseintheheights.blogspot.com/

For me, holiday decorating is all about finding cheap and easy ways to give a nod to the season.  So as the 4th of July approaches, I was excited to utilize a few of the dozens of mason jars that we have around our house to create some patriotic vases for our front porch.

Creating these mason jars couldn't have been easier (or cheaper)!  I used red, white and blue craft paint to paint each jar, and then distressed them with sand paper before topping them off with a jute twine bow and a simple grocery store flower bouquet.  Since I had most of the supplies on hand, all that I needed to purchase was the craft paint ($2.01 for all three) and flowers ($5.99), bringing my grand total to an even eight bucks.

For some variety, I painted one jar white and then used painter's tape and red paint to add stripes....

...used toothpicks to dot red and blue paint on top of a white base coat in order to create a confetti effect...

...and left the third jar a simple, distressed navy blue.

Although I did need to wait for the paint to dry between coats, I found that the craft paint dried very quickly and was able to complete the entire project in multiple sittings within the course of one day.  

I set the vases on a wood slice to bring it all together, and it's such a perfect seasonal touch for our front porch!

Cheap, easy, and uses materials that you probably already have on hand.  I can't think of a better project than that! Hope you give them a try!
