I have a fabulous project to share with you today! These sweet vintage inspired Painted Mason Jars. I saw some of them being sold on Etsy and had to give them a try. They are super easy and a fabulous handmade piece that you could easily gift to your mom on Mother’s Day.

Supplies for Painted Mason Jars:
Painted Mason Jars Tutorial:
Grab your supplies and be sure that your jars are clean and ready for painting.
Paint two coats of paint on the outside of your jar. Allow appropriate time to dry.
Sand the raised letters and spots around the jar for an aged/vintage look with a nail file.
Seal. Paint one or two coats of sealer on your jar.
Arrange flowers for display or gifting.
Additional details: The colors I used for the painted mason jars were Citron, Turquoise and Vanilla by craft smart (purchased at Michael’s).
I used pint-sized jars (however, any shape and size would work). The sealer allows you to be able to wipe the jars with a damp wet cloth for cleaning purposes; however, you cannot submerge or soak these in water.
In the picture below I used a vintage action for fun. I’m madly in love with these jars! I may even add a few to my shop, for those who don’t want to hassle with the DIY part. If your mom likes flowers, why not make a fun mason jar vase to pair with them? I’m willing to bet you’ll make a few for yourself too.
