Painting Mason Jars with Chalk Paint

An Easy and Fun DIY Project

 

I love spring home décor projects. I have wanted to paint some mason jars with chalk paint for a while now, and spring is a great time to do this. I always see such fun photos with spring flowers in pastel jars, and I think they look so nice.

Supplies Needed:

  • Mason Jars
  • Chalk Paint and Wax
  • Sanding Block or Sand Paper
  • Buffing Cloth
  • Foam Brush

Painting Mason Jars with Chalk Paint

  • Start by painting the rim of the jar. Hold it toward the bottom, and work paint around the jar making your way to the bottom.
  • Then set it down, and paint the bottom of the jar as well.
  • This is after one coat

  • Let this dry completely, and add a second coat.

  • After the second coat has dried completely, you are ready for sanding. This is one of the fun parts. I love to have a distressed look to my décor. Lightly sand over the raised parts of the jar so the glass is revealed.

  • Then you need to apply the wax coat, and let that dry completely.
  • When it is ready, use a soft cloth and buff the finish to a soft sheen. You can see this in the picture below. The jar on the left is buffed, and the jar on the right is not. This step makes a big difference and really creates a professional look. I love it!

  • Now you are ready to add flowers or greenery or even create an herb garden.
