Paint and Distress Glass Jars - Quick Craft
I love glass jars, especially mason jars. The charming raised details and words give them such character.
I recently found an adorable glass jar at a dollar store with a lattice design and "Made with Love" on the jar. To really make those words and details stand out, I decided to paint and distress the jar. I love the results!!!
This is a super easy project and the results are so pretty!
For this project you'll need:
- glass jar with raised details (mason jars work well)
- chalk paint in desired color (I used linen white)
- paint brush (I used a foam brush because I had it on hand, but any brush will work)
- sand paper (I used 80 grit, but any will do)
Wash and dry the jar to remove any dust or sticky residue.
Once jar is completely dry, paint a thin coat of paint on the outside of the jar.
Let paint dry completely then paint a second coat. If needed, add a third coat.
Let dry completely then hand sand over the rims and raised details on the jar.
Such a quick and easy way to fancy up your glass jars! I love using these jars to decorate and as vases.
I usually tie a bit of rope or jute around the mouths of the jars to give them a bit more texture and a little vintage or farmhouse charm.
