If you haven’t jumped on the Mason Jar fan page, it is time to check in! I’ll admit that I was a little slow to warm up to these little jars, but have recently found myself using them in a variety of ways (drinking, storage, decor). Today I am doing a SUPER SIMPLE DIY Mason Jar – Flower Pot Tutorial.
- Mason jars
- Acrylic Paint
- Flowers (real or fake)
- Sand Paper/Nail file
1) Start out with a clean mason jar. If you need to remove any residue, a little rubbing alcohol can go a long way.
2) Apply the first layer of acrylic paint. In this tutorial, I mixed a pink and white acrylic paint to create 3 variations of pink. Mixing colors is a quick and convenient way to expand your color palette. Wait for 20 minutes in between coats.
3) I used 3 coats of acrylic paint to achieve my final product. If you want to add a ‘distressed’ look, use sandpaper or even a nail file to uncover the 3d lettering [optional].
Arrange your flowers and ENJOY!!
