Old jar’s new coats
Everyday objects such as jars or bottles usually don’t have a long lifespan. The shiny containers are something we’re unfairly taking for granted and throwing them away after they’ve served their purpose.
But if large scale events like weddings and birthdays lie ahead of you, you might rethink your attitude toward the mason jars. With little time and permanent spray paint, you can transform the simple preserving jars into a colorful table decoration. Because of their inexpensive production the spray painted jars aka flower vases can save you a great deal of money.
For this project you will need:
- min. 3 embossed mason jars
- Edding spray paints in 3 different shades
- rubber gloves and something to cover up your table
For this project you will have to work outside: balcony, garage, garden. Spray paints tend to smell strong and spread rapidly across the room. Before you paint, the jars must be dry, clean and free from grease or food scraps. Cover up your work surface and wear rubber gloves.
1. Take your mason jars and make sure they’re clean before placing it upside-down (lidless of course) on your covered up table.
2. Take the Edding permanent spray paint (or any other spray paint) and spray your jars generously until it’s well coated. It’s important that you spray the outside and not the inside of the jar. Not only makes it easier to clean the vase, it’s also better for your lovely flowers since most of the color sprays aren’t food-safe.
3. The paint takes approx. 30 minutes to dry completely.
And there you have it – a beautiful decor idea created in 3 steps.
