Painting Mason Jars With Chalk Paint DIY

Painting Mason Jars with Chalk Paint is a fantastic way to start celebrating Spring! It is just around the corner, and this is a super easy, super cute DIY perfect for getting you in the mood. Our Regular Contributor, Michelle James, has done it again! You will love this project.

 

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.

 

 

 

 

I really hope you enjoyed this simple, fun home décor project that is inexpensive and looks great!

Have a great day, and I will see you next time,

Michelle
