Spring Painted Mason Jars Tutorial

How to make hand-painted DIY Spring Painted Mason Jars!
 I love the way Mason Jars look when they are painted and today I'm sharing how I hand-painted these cuties for my Spring decor. You can either paint them with glossy paint, matte, or use techniques to distress them for a shabby chic look. I chose to make these and eggshell finish, in which I merely combined the two {glossy and matte} paint finishes and eggshell was born!

These pastel Spring Mason Jar colors really evoke the feelings of gorgeous Spring flowers and beautiful warm sunset evenings to come. I wanted specific pastel colors yet I couldn't find the shade of paint I needed in my local store, so in order to DIY and save some money I decided to make my own shade using paint I already had. AND I literally used my hands to hand-paint one of the layers of paint since I didn't want brush strokes....then I finished it off with a spray paint layer for a softened effect:) Ready to make beautiful Spring Mason Jars?
Let's DIY...

They don't have to be perfect, just paint....

 I put these above the stove in my Office Kitchen, I needed to spruce up the space!
It's a rental space so I can only use temporary solutions.

Use whatever paint you have on hand then use white spray paint to adjust the shade to your preference...

Supplies
    -re-purpose glass pickling jars
Paint
    -craft acrylic
    -spray paint

Pink- Pink FolkArt Paint
Teal- Emerald Pantone Satin Paint {Lowe's Sample size}
Yellow- Yellow spray paint Krylon
Blue- Blue spray paint Krylon
White- Gloss spray paint Krylon

Step 1:
Prep area to paint in a well ventilated space....outdoors preferably.
Paint your first layer.
For the blue and yellow jar I just painted straight on, then lighten it with white spray paint.
For pink/teal jar I painted a layer of white as a base coat.

Step 2:
If using acrylic paint:
Pink- I used 'Pink' FolkArt craft paint after the white spray paint cured, and then after that set I finished it off with white spray paint to lighten it.
Teal- I used Pantone Emerald satin paint after the white spray paint cured, and then after that set up I finished it with white spray paint.

Step 3:
Set aside to cure overnight. Outside.

Tip: These are for decorative purposes only, do not use for edible ingredients after painting.

Enjoy:)
Painted mason jars make me happy....well let's face it, all mason jars make me happy!!!
