Shabby Chic Mason Jar Vase

Billy Jo made this great shabby chic vase from a Mason jar.  This is an easy project that you can finish in an afternoon and display by dinner time!


Supplies:
Quart Mason Jar
Yellow Acrylic Paint
Turquoise Acrylic Paint
Sandpaper 
Silk Flowers

Directions:
  1. Pour turquoise paint into the inside of the Mason jar. Swirl around until the inside is completely coated. Allow paint to dry.
  2.  Paint the outside of the jar with yellow acrylic paint using a paintbrush. 
  3. Allow paint to dry.
  4. Using a fine grade piece of sandpaper, slowly sand off paint from letters, bottom and sides so that the turquoise paint shows through. If you feel you have sanded too far you can repaint with yellow acrylic paint and try again.
  5. Place flowers in jar.
Your new Mason jar vase is ready to display! Place this decoration in your kitchen or family room for a touch of spring!
