DIY Spray Painted Mason Jars

I'm coloring mason jars ..... again! Ok, so this is my third official blog post on DIY colored mason jars and this time I'm using spray paint : ) If you're a mason jar junkie like myself you will love this one as much as all my other posts. 

This was featured on Home and Family on the Hallmark channel with two other coloring tutorials. If you want to see the other tutorials scroll to the bottom of this page or click below!

If you want to see the spray painted jars continue on my friends ....

Aren't these beautiful!? Beautious as my daughter Lily would say. I particularly love the gold one. And the white one ... and the blue one ... Oh I just LOVE them all. I have so many more that I didn't photograph yet but you will just have to wait for my Disneyland party blog post to see the rest in action : )

Ok, so unlike my other coloring posts this one is easy.

Take your regular mason jar or marinara jar, or pickle jar, or whatever you have that's clear and clean and wipe it dry and stand it up on a newspaper with no lid.

Now get your favorite high-quality spray paint. I like Krylon. It doesn't chip easily and it gives a nice even coat. I use gloss or satin. My gold mason jar was made with this exact gold leaf color. I bought all my spray paint at Michaels. Now spray the heck out of your jar (the outside of your jar). Let dry for 10 minutes and viola ~ you have a beautiful colored mason jar perfect for flowers, kitchen utensils, or anything else your little heart desires.

TIP: Use the crystal clear acrylic coating to prevent scratches on your jars.

Hello! I just found your website and love it. I, too, have an obsession with Mason Jars (probably because my last name IS Mason!) Do you know what color you used for the blue jar?

Thank you so much. I was going to hand paint my mason jars. But the paint wasn't going on even and I was told to multiple coats. This is so much easier.

I am ready to spray paint the jars. Question how do you turn them to get full color on all of them? Remember it's winter here, I was going to do it in the garage.

Leave the lid off and put your finger inside to twist it around! They will take longer to dry for you unfortunately. Good luck!

My mother gave me your website as she watched the Hallmark home show yesterday because I have 2 cases of Mason jars from my daughters' birthday party last September. I made labels for them, added a cupcake wrapper, & paper straws for their drinks. They loved them. So...we are having fun painting them. Last project we did with them, we made HAPPY 2013 moments-decorated them and we have begun placing all the great happy & positive moments of 2013 so far. We will read them on the last day of 2013! Thanks for sharing, your jars ALL look so great!

How creative! Saw your DIY demo on the Hallmark Home show. They are lovely - especially like the white. Do you have any for purchase?
