I want to show you how to make the easiest painted French mason jar.
Sometimes the easiest DIY projects are the best.
I’ve jumped on the mason jar bandwagon. I wasn’t going to. Not because I don’t love them, because I do. I use them throughout my house but have never posted about them.
It has been so popular for the past couple of years now. Who needs another DIY mason jar post, right?
Well, this is by far the easiest and of course I made it neutral and French.
The easiest painted French mason jar.
I love these mason jars because of the vintage brand impression on it. And I love when it’s painted so you can see the impression more, but I love the glass so I can see what is in the jar.
I’m planning to use these jars in my office for paper clips, pens and elastics so it’s nice to take advantage of the glass and actually see what’s inside of it.
They would also make beautiful flower vases.
I made a plan to just paint the impression part of the glass and leave the rest.
- Silhouette Cameo stencil with adhesive vinyl or painter’s tape
- Bernadin mason jars
- chalk paint
- foam brush
- Using my Silhouette Cameo machine, I created a simple rectangle shape and put the sticker around the printed area of glass
(or use painter’s tape to square off the area to paint) making sure to press down firmly so paint doesn’t leak through.
2. Paint the area in the middle with chalk paint.
I used some leftover Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey.
3. Simply take off the sticky cutout to reveal your design.
4. Wrap some twine around the top a couple of times and knot it.
I love the way they turned out.
So simple and beautiful for office supplies or a flower vase.
An easy and simple way to add some French and organization to your home.
