We just had my sister’s baby shower and I decided to use distressed mason jars as centerpieces. I knew it would be cheaper than purchasing a bunch of fresh bouquets and I liked that I could finish the centerpieces ahead of time. Painting and distressing mason jars turned out to be a lot easier than I thought it would be.
With just a few simple steps these mason jars make the perfect home and seasonal decor – especially for spring! Unfortunately, I can’t find who to give credit to for the picture below so if anyone knows the origin of this photo please contact me. The link goes to brushes that are recommended for the chalk paint and the wax but I personally haven’t tried them.
I found I only needed a single 2 oz bottle of each color and I still had paint leftover. I chose to use fake flowers because I was able to decorate the venue the day before and there was no air conditioning.
Step 4: Use sandpaper over the raised letters and on the rim to give the jars a distressed look.
I hope you enjoy this easy DIY craft that can be used as seasonal decor or centerpieces.
