DIY Painted Mason Jars

This weekend, a few of my bridesmaids threw me a wedding shower. I'm sure you'll see all of the details of the mimosa bar and brunch setup in an upcoming post from Callie!

As my thank you hostess gifts, I gave each girl a flower arrangement in hand-painted mason jars, and a cute pair of earrings from one of my favorite boutiques, Francesca's.

Mason Jar Recipe:

  • Spray Adhesive
  • Natural Jute
  • Hot glue gun
DIY painted mason jars

Step 1: Mix icing color of choice and modge podge. Depending on what you want your jar to look like, color to modge podge ratio will differ. For mine, I used very little icing color. My suggestion would be to start out small, and you can always add more.

Step 2: Use your foam brush to paint your colored "paint" on the outside of your jar. Set to dry.

Step 3: Spray a clear adhesive over your painted mason jar to seal.

Step 4: Use your hot glue gun to attach your natural jute, or hemp along the top rim of your jar.

Step 5: Add flowers to your finished product!
