Ombre mason jars



I remember when ombre came into style the first time around.  And I have to admit that it’s taken me some time to wrap my head around its comeback …


I mean, who can blame me?  I’m a product of the 70’s.  The very same decade that is not known for its fashion or style highs.  Just the lows.  Lots and lots of lows in various hues of brown, orange, and apple green …


* Shudder *


So I hung around on the sidelines while others went crazy with the ombre projects.   Walls and furniture and vases and lamps and cakes.


Wait a minute … did I just say cakes?  Yup, someone even made an ombre cake.  And it is A.MAZE.ING!



So when it came to stocking the Etsy shop with painted and distressed mason jars, I thought it might be fitting to create an ombre line …



… in shades of blue.


They were pretty simple to make.  I just started with blue paint and painted one jar with the undiluted color.  Then I added some white and painted the second jar.  Added more white, painted the third jar.  For the final jar, I started with white and added just a drop of blue.


Then I sealed them with this product to protect them from scratches.


And I’m happy to report that I just sold a set of these blue ombre mason jars.  But don’t worry.  The shop has been restocked …


I’m beginning to think this new mason jar business venture might actually work out …

    I love these Linda! And yay, sold! That is awesome. You are the Mason Jar Queen baby. It’s always a pleasure to see what you and your mason jars are up to. And how is the finger?

    Ombre mason jars? Your creativity never ceases to amaze me, Linda! I really liked the painted mason jar idea, but I LOVE the ombre painted mason jars. Very cool, I’m not a bit surprised they sold! Have a great day.

    They look great Linda! Glad you’re selling. I too was a late adopter of the ombre – and I remember the cake, which might be my favorite ombre ever. Of course – it is cake after all.

    I ordered the “ombre” mason jars, although I might have missed that word in the description. I guess because they are side by side and not on top of each other :) Can’t wait to get them!
