A good friend of ours from church gave Mama a bunch of old mason jars she didn’t want anymore.
Kristen and I decided to paint them up. So we sat on our back deck, in the 80 degree sunshine, and painted them together. It was so much fun!!!
This is a really easy project, and the outcome is adorable!!!
What you will need:
- mason jars
- paint and paintbrushes (We used two different kinds of paint. But the chalk paint seemed to work the best)
Be sure the mason jars are all clean before you get started, then paint away. Just make sure to paint in the same direction. 🙂
After ours dried, Kristen sanded them a bit to give them a distressed look, but that’s not necessary.

It felt so good to sit in the warm sunshine. I am so ready for Summertime!
I enjoyed a cold coke while painting, thanks to my Nana and Pop!
And here are the finished products.
… and my personal favorite (sorry for the blurry picture)
Painting these were so much fun. And I loved taking some of the pictures!
