Mason Jar Projects

Welcome to my gallery of mason jar projects!  I have personally created each and every project featured in this collection.  Seriously.  Some might even say that I’m a bit obsessed with mason jars. So much so, in fact, that I’ve created a second blog devoted exclusively to mason jar projects {click here} …

    I was wondering how this would work with purple. Is it possible to still have it be a dark purple or just tinted?

    I have a question. I was wondering if there’s a certain way to paint it on there without noticeable streaks or sometimes i get clumping. I know to wait until its fully dry before applying a second coat or doing what else I need to do, but I’m just starting out and to be honest with you i haven’t painted or done anything with art since high school. Just need some helpful tips if you don’t mind. Thanks! Your work is giving me ideas to try. I do hope they turn our as good as yours. You did an amazing job!

      Honestly, it will always look imperfect. But please make sure you are using just plain acrylic paint. Not multi-purpose or enamel. Also, if you hold them up to the light you will see streaks and imperfections. That’s part of the beauty of the distressed looks. It helps to fix those errors. Plus, once you add some water and flowers everything works out and the streaks and imperfections are no longer noticeable. However, if this is a problem for you then I suggest using one of the “chalk paint” products that are now available just about everywhere now. They are matte and self-leveling and offer a fuller coverage. There’s even a craft line of Americana paint chalk paints that you can find at Michaels in the little tubes.
