Mason Jar Update

  • September 04, 2015

Mason jars can be found everywhere these days! Instead of leaving these jars in their ‘regular’ clear glass state, try out one of these four projects to transform your jars into something special! All you will need are a few supplies and you will have a unique jar in no time!MasonJarDIY

From Left to Right; Top to Bottom:

1. Do you want to add a little ‘sparkle’ to your life? My Uncommon Slice Of Suburbia has the project for you! To make this glitter jar, all you will need is some Mod Podge, glitter and a Mason Jar!

2. Are you forever searching for these jars with the vintage tint? Stop looking and make your own! Momtastic tints Mod Podge with food coloring and mixes it in each jar. Next, ‘bake’ the jars in the oven until the glue has cleared and there aren’t any streaks.

3. To create a ‘chalky’ finish to your Mason Jars, Love Of Family And Home recommends using chalkboard paint as a base coat! Once the chalkboard paint has dried, you can paint over it with any color you’d like. Once all the coats of paint are dry sand over the wording on the jar to reveal the text and add some dimension.

4. Did you know that you can ‘frost’ glass with Elmer’s glue? A Beautiful Mess provides instructions on how to do just that! All you will need to do is brush on the glue and let it dry! This creates the perfect snowed glass effect in no time. This technique will create the perfect mood in any room.

We hope that these projects have inspired you to transform the Mason Jars in your home! We think the ‘frosted’ jars will come in handy when the holiday season rolls around, don’t ya think?
