DIY Vintage Mason Jar Vases {Tutorial}


I don't know about you but I love mason jars. There is so much you can do with them. I have done a whole picnic using only mason jars, stored salads for the week in them, used them as cups and for decor containers for parties, utensil holders, and vases. They are so pretty and you can do so much with them just in their pure clear form, but for spring I really wanted some color on them. I love this look but thought of going a bit more bold and making them look shabby chic and vintage, but elegant and pretty all at the same time. I am in LOVE with how they turned out and I am excited to show you how easy they were.

{Supplies Needed}

-mason jars {big, small, medium whatever your heart desires} I already had mine so that was nice. I ended up using the big ones for mine
-chalkboard paint {Michaels super cheap like $1.29 or something like that}
-Paint the color you want your vases to be {I just used paint I already had in my stash}You could use craft paint or spray paint, but since I already had the craft paint I just went with that
-Sponge brushes {if you are spray painting you wont need these}
-Clear spray paint
-Sand paper or block
-pretty lids {optional}

{How I made them}

1. The very first thing I did was paint them with chalkboard paint. I wanted the black so that when I distressed it at the end the black would show through and give it that shabby look I was going for. The reason I did the chalkboard paint instead of just black paint is because it adhered to the glass better and was a good coat to put on before the colored paint plus I loved the chalky matte look it gave to the glass once they were all painted. I did 2 coats one going horizontal and one going vertical. {If you are spray painting you probably only need one coat}.


2. Once the chalk paint was completely dry I started to paint the jars the colors I wanted with just regular old craft paint {again you could use spray paint if you would rather}. I chose the light blue, coral, mint and yellow because they reminded me of spring and summer and that is exactly what I wanted them for. The perfect pop of color. You can do these in all different colors, for whatever you want them for or where you want them to go. The picture above it one coat of paint {don't be alarmed if it looks like this at first} after a few coats it looks awesome I promise.


3. This is after 3 coats of the colored paint. It looks much better now :) told you they would look good. Even the 3 coats only used about 1/3 of the small bottle of craft paint, so it is very inexpensive especially if you already have most of the supplies like I did.


4. Now they looked pretty but they looked a little too clean for me so I got out my sanding block and started roughing them up so you could see the black showing through. Again I love how they look matte {remember use chalkboard paint underneith for this look} and not shinny anymore it just gives even more of the vintage vibe to it. 


5. The last thing I did was spray them with a clear spray paint to seal them up so the paint would not chip anymore and so they would be protected.


Fill them up with some water put pretty fresh spring flowers in them and you have the perfect center piece, decor item, or statement piece to your home or party.


Like I said super easy. I think these would look so pretty for a wedding reception. and you can whip them out pretty quickly.
