Meet the Bloggers!
Our blogger community shares new ideas, offers inspiration, and shows you how to do it all yourself!
- Mason jars (or any empty glass jars)
- ScotchBlue™ Painter's tape
- Metallic gold spray paint
- Flat black spray paint (or any matte color)
- Optional: Hole punch (for polka dot patterns)
- Optional: X-acto® knife and straight edge (to cut tape into thinner stripes)
Step By Step Guide:
Remove lids, then rinse or wipe down jars to remove any dust and allow to thoroughly dry.
Put down plastic or newspaper in a well ventilated area or outside, and place your jars with the tops down. TIP: To create a steady surface on grass, use an old palette.
Spray your jars completely with the flat black (or other matte color) paint, and allow to dry for several hours.
Now for the fun part! Once the base paint has thoroughly dried, use ScotchBlue™ Painter's tape. to tape off sections of your jars to create patterns. If you're feeling extra creative, use a hole punch to punch out holes on pieces of tape to create polka dots. You can also use an X-acto® knife and a straight edge to cut thinner strips of tape for different sized stripes. When done taping, place your jars on your plastic or newspaper again.
Spray the taped jars with the metallic paint. Allow to dry for several hours.
Remove the tape and admire your new containers!
