Patriotic Mason Jars

Patriotic Mason Jars

I have tons of used mason jars laying around the house. I do reuse them for canning, but the ones that get chipped or have been microwaved, cannot be used to can. So, I have been reusing them for storage and decoration around the house. Plain old mason jars are beautiful, but I wanted some color to add to our patio, and since the 4th of July is right around the corner, I decided to go with a Patriotic Mason Jar set.

To make them, all you need is some mason jars (you can pick them up pretty much anywhere, and they super cheap) and spray paint.

I wanted my Patriotic Mason Jars to have a ventage look to them so I painted them white, blue, and red and let them dry completely.

After the first layer of paint was dry, I just alternated the colors and give them another coat.

After the second coat, I decided to give some crackly paint a try, so I painted on a coat and let that dry. I then alternated the colors one last time (so each jar had a coat of red, white, and blue) and give it a final coat.

After the paint was dried, I just took a small piece of sandpaper (a nail file works too) and scuffed them up a bit so the under color would show through a bit more.

Then, just one last spray of clear coat to make sure everything stays in place and prevent chips… Though, I think the chips would just add to the character of the the Patriotic Mason Jars.

I think they turned out awesome, and will be doing some more for the inside of the house as well.
