Spray Paint and Stenciling Colored Mason Jars for Fall Decor

Kim Brush3 Comments

It's no secret that Mason jars are my thing. They are so versatile in the kitchen and for crafts! Since summer is almost over, I realized that my sweet spring mason jar colors need to have a cozy fall update. To replace the soft pastels I want to share a new DIY that uses the spray paint technique that I detailed in my DIY Bless You Jar Tissue Dispenser post(so go check it out!) and add in some stenciling and maybe even burlap flowers!

DIY Bless You Mason Jar Tissue Dispenser

I have a confession to make. Mason jars are my addiction. I can't NOT buy them at a garage sale. My daughter says that I have "jar" a problem. She's probably right.  Last summer I started up-cycling some of my "extra" jars (Translate: I had run out of space and needed to share some of the love with friends) into Bless You jar tissue dispensers!

So many Projects, so little time aka Week 3 of #the100dayproject

Time for creativity every day makes me SO happy. It is week 3 of #the100dayproject. This week was all over the board.  Rug making, vinyl projects, crocheting projects!

Sometimes my projects are gifts and sometimes they are for a post on the blog. 

But often they are just for my sanity. Who else does crafts to keep yourself from going crazy? It's my daily self-care. Even if it is only for 15 minutes--it works.

Progress plus Missed Days on The 100 Day Project

When I started this project I thought I might be sabotaging myself.  New projects are my specialty but so are unfinished projects.  Can I get an amen?  I know I'm not alone on this.  That is why I chose my project to be unfinished projects and not something new. Sadly my father has been in the ICU for over 3  weeks and this past week he graduated to heaven.  So my creativity is taking a small break to concentrate on more important things.  I will be back in a few days.  Actually crafting is a great outlet and distraction for grief.
