DIY Mason Jars by Darlene Schacht
If you’re looking for a super-affordable DIY project, this is the one. These jars cost me 50 cents each at the Goodwill store, and the acrylic paint comes from Michael’s and the dollar store. Plus they take less than five minutes to decorate. How great is that?!
1. Wash and dry your mason jar.
2. Pour a bit of paint into the bottom of your jar.
- Tilt the jar and roll the paint around the inside until it’s completely covered, but only up to the threaded area of the jar.
- Once the paint is covered up to the threaded part, place the jar upside down on a paper plate. The paint will run down and cover the threaded area. Leave them upside down for about two hours. If you notice any spots that need a little extra paint, you can add more and then place it mouth down once again.
- After about two hours, turn the jars over and let the insides dry completely overnight.
