I'm excited to share a quick little "painted jar" project with you today. It's so easy and most importantly it's pretty! Seriously, this project is so stinkin' easy anyone can do it.
- a few 53 cent wal-mart acrylic paints
- glass jars: I used left over pasta jars, a frappuccino jar and a few mason jars
- wax paper
In the middle of making these, I decided that I wanted pink, too. So I got out some red paint that I already had and another mason jar. I mixed the white and red together until I had the exact pink that I liked. I didn't want it too bright or too pastel looking.
1) poured in my paint, 2) swirled it around in each jar until the inside was completely covered with paint, 3) set upside down (on wax paper) to drain the leftover paint for a few hours and, 4) turned them over to let them dry over night.
There was a lot of paint that came out after leaving them upside down. If you don't use wax paper, make sure you use something that will contain the paint from seeping through.
Oh, since this is acrylic paint....you won't be able to wash them or put water in them which means no real flowers. That's no problem for me since I can't seem to keep real flowers alive. :)
I hope you liked this project and will make a few yourself!
