Preppy Distressed Mason Jar Vase
Hi there! It’s Katie from View From The Fridge back this month with a quick and easy (and even a bit Spring-like) DIY project – a Preppy Distressed Mason Jar Vase!
Mason jar crafts and decor are still popular. Most of them easy to make just like this distressed mason jar or this Mason Jar Terrarium!
Here’s what you’ll need …
- Martha Stewart Vintage Decor Paint in Sailor Blue
- American Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting
- Americana Decor Clear Wax
- Foam Paint Brush
- Tape: Painter’s Tape or Washi Tape
- Clear Mason Jar
- Sanding Block
Starting with this:
First, apply two coats of white chalk paint to entire outside of jar and allow to dry:
Next, measure and tape off your stripes using painters tape, washi tape, or frog tape:
Allow to dry, and remove tape:
Using sandpaper or a sanding block, slightly distress the painted surface to highlight features. Rub on a coat of creme wax at this time, too:
Add flowers and enjoy!
This was a easy, quick, and fun craft to add some color to your Spring Decor!
Thanks for having me here today! If you get a chance, stop over and say ‘hello’ at View from the Fridge.
Have a wonderful weekend!
This is too cute! I have a lake cabin and this would be a perfect addition! Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you for the tutorial. I’m late getting into the game and some directions out there from long ago did not work. I’ve used this brand of chalk paint and even used a sample of Lowes paint to tint it but I was concerned as I felt mine was a bit see through. But I think it must be okay. Looks similar to yours which I love. Love the denim look of stripes! I pinned it to my jar ideas.
HI there! Visiting from Whimsy Wednesday. This looks so cute! Very creative and I love the stripes. Thanks for sharing!
I love this idea of the stripes. I will stop for mason jars. LOL! Thanks for the tutorial. Yours turned out fantastic.
I love the stripes too! Such a nautical feel. This idea would work well with some of the ideas I have for my new living room.Dropping in from Whimsy Wednesday:)
Love these! Such a pretty rustic vase!
I have been dying to paint some jars lately. Thanks for sharing this!
This is such a cute idea. You should link up at Family Joy Blog Link Up Party this week. The party is open until Wednesday @12PM MST. Check it out http://thinking-outside-the-pot.com/?p=2343
What a great idea. I just bought a french grain sack table runner for my kitchen table and a few of these will look great as a centerpiece!
I love the stripes, reminds me of Cornishware pottery form Cornwall in the UK which I love (I even have a pinterest board dedicated to it!)
So very pretty. It’s on must to do list.
I love repurposing jars, there are so many fun ways to dress them up. I love the distressed look and the blue stripes, it almost looks like denim wrapped around the jar. Turn
I absolutely love mason jar crafts! This came out really nice:) I’d love it if you shared this over at my link party http://www.twentysomethinginthe2010s.com/peace-love-link-up-001/
Pretty idea! Thanks for sharing it on the #HomeMattersParty
Such a pretty twist ! I have so many jars I could use this on!
Love the stripes and the colors are perfect for spring! Fantastic idea!
LOVE this! Seriously so cute and great color choices.
Thanks for linking up with the Best of the Blogosphere link up.
I live on a lake and I think these would be so cute in my house! Thanks for bringing this by Throwback Thursday!
I really like Katie’s spring project. The colors are pretty. Pinned & shared.Thanks for sharing at the Inspiration Spotlight party!
This is so cute and so whimsical looking too! I love it!
Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).
Wishing you a lovely evening.
I’m going to do this to the mason jar I have with no lid! Thanks for the idea and for linking up at #SaucySaturdays.
I love all things Mason and what a simple and easy craft to make – Love it! and pinned it to my Mason Jar board so I can come back and give it a try. Thanks for sharing such a great idea!
Wow this is really cute and it seems easy enough even I can do it. Really like it for the 4th of July! Great idea. Can’t wait to head to the craft store
This is lovely! Such an inexpensive project too. I’m going to have to try this with some of my jars. I’ve spray painted some before but never brushed it on and given it a distressed look. I love the effect! This is being featured at our link party. http://www.thelifeofjenniferdawn.com/2016/05/12-handmade-ideas-for-mom-and-little.html
