I'm sure you've all seen the painted Mason jars, that have been all the rage for awhile.
While I'd painted a few sets in the past, I wanted to do something a bit different this time around.
Rather than go out and buy a bunch of crafting supplies, I am trying hard to use what I have on hand, and just so happen to have a cupboard full of canning jars!
For this set, I painted the outside of both a quart size and two pint sized jars a pretty cream color, using my Deco Art chalky finish paint. I bit of distressing reveals all of their great details, and gives them rustic appeal. I then added a couple of coats of clear matte sealer for durability.
So I thought I'd put my own glittery spin on these jars, by adding some of my paper roses that I've created from vintage sheet music. You can't really tell in the photos, but I've added clear coarse glitter to the roses, as well as tiny rhinestone centers for a bit of bling!!
If you've been visiting me for awhile, you know how much I love making these roses! While they are a bit labor intensive, they are so much fun to make. All of that hand tearing and glittering is a real stress reliever, and cheaper than going to therapy!!
I tied some of my crinkly cream seam binding around the tops of each jar, then hot glued the flowers on.
I think these would be so lovely with bouquets of fresh flowers in.
They also would be magical with votive candles, or even flameless tea lights added!
I've added them to my Etsy shop, but I think I'll have to make myself some to keep:)
Wishing you a great week. Now go out and find something to paint or glitter, ok?!
