Yeah, this is my first post to share with everyone. As you get to know me you will know that I am OBSESSED with mason jars. So of course my first post to share is a Mason Jar craft and this one is great.
One of my favorite blogs is The Country Chic Cottage. If you have not had the chance to go and check out the blog I highly recommend that you do.
Supplies needed to make your own lace mason jar vase:
- Smooth sided Ball mason jars
- Lace ribbon
- DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting
- Krylon Chalky Finish in Ultramarine (this is NOT available for purchase yet but it coming to market soon) (another spray paint will work in the mean time however the finish will not be matte)
Paint your entire jar with the DecoArt Chalky Finish paint. I used a poucer brush to avoid any brush marks. One or two coats should work for complete coverage. Be sure to allow to dry in between coats and completely before continuing to the next step.
Wrap the jar with the lace ribbon and secure with a little hot glue. You want the ribbon to be tight and secure but come off easily later. I just used the hot glue to secure the ribbon to itself and not the jar.
Spray right over the top with the Krylon chalky finish paint. A few light coats will get complete coverage. Allow to dry to the touch then remove the ribbon.
Removing it is like MAGIC!! It is not there but it appears to be! It is absolutely a gorgeous mason jar vase for weddings. Plus it is so simple to make! NOTE: You should be able to reuse the lace again and again for multiple vases.
