DIY Spring Mason Jar Decor

diy spring mason jar decor

Hi everyone! Spring is finally here in the Midwest! Yay! The past couple weeks have been cold, rainy, and yucky, so it is time for spring! To welcome in the new season, I made some spring mason jar decor (we are displaying ours on our fireplace mantel). Enjoy! 🙂

 

Supplies:

  • 1 sponge brush
  • 1 small bottle of chalk paint (I used Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish for Glass, in Cherish)
  • 1 or 2 mason jars (depending on how many jars of decor you want)
  • 1 roll of wide ribbon
  • Bouquet of large fake flowers

the one i will use

 

Directions:

  1. Rub your jars down with rubbing alcohol (if they have been used for other things before, give them a bath in hot, soapy water as well)

2. Place jars upside down and apply the first coat of paint. Wait until dry completely (about 2.5-3 hours) before applying 2nd (and even third if needed!) coats.

3. After the jars are dry, flip the over so that they sit the right way, and paint the rim. I only did one coat here to give it a more distressed look.

4. Wrap a length of ribbon around the jar and tie into a neat bow.

5. Cut 5 flowers off your fake bouquet of flowers. Arrange 2 into the smaller jar and 3 in the larger jar.

6. Put your new DIY spring decor on display and enjoy your spring-y home!

Happy Spring!
