These Jars are so fun and really simple to make. The finished product looks great and can be used for all sorts of things. What will you use them for?
Here is what you need:
Start with clean and dry canning jars. Paint the outside of the jars with white chalk paint, it will probably take about 2 coats. Let them dry completely . I bought this kit on Amazon and it gives you 12 different colors! They normally come is much larger jars which means the price can add up quickly if you are wanting more than one color. The 2oz jars are perfect for this project. I made about 5 jars total and still had some left of all the colors I used.
Now add painter’s tape and place around the jar so you can paint the stripes on the jar. Use a sponge brush to paint the color you have chosen on the jar. You will need two coats of paint. Let dry. Next with sand paper go over the entire jar so that the lettering is visible, and it has a more rustic look to the jars. Then finish off with Clear Wax. Let dry.
These fun jars can be used as a vase, for planted herbs, storing pencils, paint brushes or other craft supplies. They are super cute and look great displayed just about anywhere! Enjoy!
