I am a huge fan of Ball Mason Jars! Now the older vintage ones were blue glass and they are my most favorite! BUT if you go take a peek at the prices for them on ebay, they are tough to love because they cost SO much! I have a perfect solution! Paint your own blue ball mason jars!
I used Pebeo Vitrea 160 glass paint and Pebeo paint thinner. I like the traditional blue mason jars, so I used the turquoise paint. You can find these at your local craft store for $3 each. Plus a $.35 cent sponge brush for applying the paint.
You won't use much of this paint, even if you paint all 12 jars! Use about 2 quarter size drops of your paint, then add half as much paint thinner. Mix them together with your sponge brush.
After they sit for 24 hours place the jars on a cookie sheet and bake for 40 mins at 325 degrees. If you see streaks in the jars before they go into the oven, no worries the heat will help with that!
Now these jars ARE dishwasher safe! Use them in your craft rooms to store buttons, ribbons, and other loose craft items. I think they'd make great holiday center pieces! If you do this project take some photos and let us see em! We'll post your photos on Oh Strumpets for everyone to see! :)Pin It
