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!
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!
We turned the AC on this week. Kids are in the pool. I’m using the crockpot to avoid heating up the kitchen. We are on summer school schedule there is more time to do crafts, read books and play games! Summer has arrived and we are LOVING it! My craft goal for the summer was to make some string art. One version of this Mason jar vase was perfect for both the Patriot decor I love between Memorial Day and the Fourth of July and for the rest of the summer. The "normal" or summer version of the vase can hold artificial, dried or cut flowers.
I'm a mason jar addict. My daughter tells me this all the time. I don't know why. ;) PICTURE of jarsSo when I decided to make a candy jar for Valentine's Day I KNEW that I should use a Mason jar! I mean what is more useful around the house! If you doubt me check out all these Mason jar ideas. Yes I have a Mason jar Pinterest board. I'm so addicted.
