- Mason Jars
- White Paint (I used Americana Decor Chalky Finish in everlasting)
- Accent Colors (I used Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Craft Paint in Couscous, Pea Shoot, and Surf, and Taupe chalkboard paint from Craft Smart)
- Foam Brush
- Painters Tape
- Plaid Clear Acrylic Matte Sealer
- Decorative accents (optional): buttons, sea shells, etc…
- Super Glue
Apply painters tape to jar where you would like to keep your white stripe visible. I used my nail to seal the tape tightly to the jar. Next, apply a coat of your accent color on the jar. Wait until completely dry and repeat for a second coat.
Peel off tape. Use sandpaper to lightly distress the raised letters on the jar and anywhere else you may like. This gives the jar a worn, vintage feel.
In a well-ventilated area, spray sealer all over the outside of the jar. This will protect the paint from getting scratched or damaged.
Step 5 (Optional):
Attach embellishments to your jar with superglue.
A shout-out to The Crafted Sparrow and other blogs with great mason jar tutorials. I researched and tested many different methods before creating what worked best for my personal craft style. So thank you all for the guidance and inspiration!
