A Fun {and easy} Mason Jar Craft!

I came across this cute Mason Jar Craft while browsing Pinterest. {full original tutorial can be found here} I love taking things that are just lying around the house and turning them into something beautiful, which is why this particular craft was perfect for me.

Here is what you will need:
  • Various shapes and sizes of Mason Jars and as many as you would like to make. {i used 5}
  • Various colors of Spray Paint. {i used three different colors}
  • Potting Soil
  • Flowers or plants that you would like to fill your jar
I started by gathering my supplies.

Photobucket
I used three square shaped jars and two circular jars.

Photobucket
The pink was not my first choice, but Emma wanted it, so in the cart it went!

Photobucket
Look for plants that do well in small jars and do not need to be replanted to a larger area.

Photobucket

Now the fun begins. I shook my spray paint cans and began spraying.

Photobucket
Make sure to place your jars on either a paper bag or piece of cardboard so you do not ruin the surface underneath the jars while spraying them.

I applied a thin first layer, waited about 10 minutes, then sprayed on a thicker layer. Wait a few hours, I waited about 4 hours, for the paint to dry completely.

Fill the pots about halfway with the potting soil.

Next, remove the plants from their pots taking some of the dirt with them, and add them to your mason jars.

Photobucket

That's it! Simple and pretty, don'tcha think?

You can use them to decorate a windowsill, your porch, dining room table, or your front steps. The possibilities are endless!

Have you made anything crafty this summer?

I cannot take any credit for the craft project. The idea was not my own. Original idea can be found here. I just made some myself and wanted to share it with all of you!
