Pink Mason Jar DIY For Valentines Day

pink mason jars valentines day
The secret is out...I love jars! That's not really a secret to anyone who frequents the blog or who knows me, and my obsession collection tends to run the gamut from old found dug up jars, to Mason Jars to wine bottles with beautiful shapes or gorgeous labels...
Today I'm sharing a quick tutorial on crafting jars/bottles in PINK and it's the easiest thing in the world. Literally!

The jars in the first photo started out looking like the jars above. The green jar is one of the commemorative green Mason Jars, while the other two I painted a couple of years ago to look like old mercury glass and shared a tutorial HERE...
I love these and use them all the time, but have many so no worries in changing a few out to pink...
I had these paints on hand and found them all at the Home Depot at one time or another. What you'll need basically is a roll of painter's tape, some pink spray acrylic paint and a can of Rustoleum Chalk Board paint...
Tape off any areas that you don't want the spray to hit and do this outside or in a spray box. You can make a spray station by taking a large cardboard box and cutting off one side, if the cold weather prevents you from working outdoors. It you do that...be sure to wear a mask or working in a ventilated room!
A tip...when you spray or paint jars paint them upside down, as you want the paint to get as close to the bottom of the jar as possible so that it doesn't look too funky...
Remove the tape carefully to prevent peeling off the paint in areas that you might not want peeled. I like to do that as soon as the paint seems dry to the touch, as I've found that waiting too long sometimes makes for a sticky mess...

The jar on the right was the green jar, which I gave a first spray coat of the chalk paint in black and then the pink over it once dry. I took some 100 grit sandpaper to lightly distress the jar and show some of the black underneath. These jars are great for your Valentine's Day roses, or to fill with candy for a friend...
Or a pencil cup...

I decided to do a few more and on this one I tied a torn piece of shabby chic fabric as a ribbon and stamped a French sentiment...

You had me at mason jars! I love the pink and mercury glass combination! I have some ones I've done the mercury glass treatment to, but I think they need a touch of color now! Love.
