DIY // painted jars

I've seen these painted jars pop up several times. I think they're really pretty and a fun spin on the ever classic Mason Jar. With my upcoming craft event, I want to make sure I have a pretty booth and have since begun getting my display ready. I thought these jars would be a nice addition. It's super easy and as always, extra pretty! So here's what you'll need to do...

 Supplies: jars + paint

Step one // Pour paint directly into jar. Begin moving jar around so that the paint begins to cover the bottom of the jar.

Step two // Pour more paint in; this time aiming towards the side so it can run down along the sides to the bottom.

Step three // In order to get the paint to cover the top of the jar, flip the jar upside down on a a piece of paper or bag. The excess paint will run out and all of your jar should get covered. After about an hour, flip it back over and let dry! I left mine overnight and it dried right up.

Hope you enjoy your pretty new jars! If you decide to do this diy, I would love to see! Post a link in the comments below.
