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!

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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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:)

  3. 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!)
