Painted Mason Jar tutorial

Hello Bakerette readers!  I am excited to be here again today sharing a really quick and easy tutorial with you for painted mason jar vases.  You are going to love the way they look in your house, but you will probably love the cost even better!  I had all of these supplies on hand, so it didn’t cost me anything for a new decoration that I can use anywhere!  I love projects like that.

Mason Jars


  • Mason jars
  • Paint (any will do)
  • Paint brush (bristles or sponge)

Mason Jar tutorialI have wanted some of these Painted Mason Jar Vases in my house for a really long time, but never took the time to make them before.  Now that they are done, I am wondering what the heck took me so long!  I grabbed some Mason jars from my pantry and made sure that they were free from dust or dirt before starting to paint.

I used chalk paint for two of the jars and plain acrylic paint for the other. You can use any kind of paint really. My sister-in-law made some a couple of weeks ago using spray paint. It’s a pretty forgiving project.

I painted the outside of the jar ONLY.  This is important because if you paint the inside, it could be hazardous for plants if you choose to put living plants into the jars.  Plus, the paint won’t hold up if you put water in the jar.  Just stick to painting the outside.

Once it is dry, apply a second coat of paint.  If you still don’t have the coverage that you want after the second coat, feel free to add as many as you would like. If using a bristle brush, you might need to do more coats of paint to get rid of the brush strokes; depending on how good the paint is.

Last, I added some plants to my jar.  They are just fake for now, but I might replace them for real ones later.  Who knows?!  I love the way they look all together.  It makes a nice statement without being over the top, PLUS it cost me nothing.  Love that!  Thanks again for having me over.  If you liked this post, you would probably like one of these other posts.
