Paint a Mason jar! What?

It's funny that I never knew I could paint so many things! I would have never thought to paint half the stuff I do! Thank goodness for other crafty friends to inspire me to try new things & Pinterest! Seriously what did we do before Pinterest?

So when I get bored at night or during nap time my brain starts ticking hmm... I need to do something! I don't really like to sit still. I like to be doing things, with 3 kids I am always moving & doing something so when they are napping or sleeping I NEED a project!

Well I had some mason jar's from different things & I started wondering what I could do with them. I have a table in my entry way that needed to be spruced up! I've seen others paint Mason Jar's & apparently most people paint them on the inside.

Well I'm not most people so... I painted mine on the outside! When I was looking for how to paint them I was at Michael's looking at different paints. I came across Martha Stewart's paints & you can use them to paint glass. I Love Martha she is very classy & does some awesome stuff. So I knew I wanted to use her paint. I also loved the colors she had for paints.

These are the colors I chose:

Here is after one coat & then after they were done they took a couple coats

This is where the ended up on my table in my entry way.
The mirror I also painted with a Martha Stewart paint.

What do you think? Have you ever painted a Mason Jar?

  1. I have not painted a Mason Jar, but I think I will now! LOL! I am a big fan of "painting" those cheap crystal skinny vases you can find at the Goodwill for like 50 cents. I have them all over my house and get TONS of compliments on them.
