DIY Spring Mason Jars and Free Tags
DIY Spring Mason Jars and Free Tags -these make a cute and inexpensive gift!
Hi I Heart Nap Time friends. Jenny Raulli from Bloom Designs Online happy to be back here sharing a spring gift idea and printable tags with you. I always feel like there are so many times in spring when I need a little gift to honor someone in my life. Whether it is my children’s teachers for teacher appreciation week, neighbors for May Day, or other moms who help make carpool easier, now is a great time to have a basic go to gift to let these people know that they are important to you.
Since it’s spring, what easier gift than flowers! They are popping up everywhere right now in Southern California. Painted mason jars make great container for these beautiful bouquets. These painted vases are easy to make and are a great project to have your children help you with. My four kids love picking flower from our yard!
To make them you will need mason jars (I always keep a bunch at home for different projects) and acrylic paint in any color.
Put a big squirt of paint in the bottom of the jar. Secure the lid and shake well until the inside of the jar is completely covered with paint. By painting the inside of the glass, the vases have a nice glossy finish. Remove the lids and allow the jars to dry upside down over night on newspaper. Any extra paint may drip out. Once dry, fill with your favorite flowers.

I love these! That pink one is gorgeous and I’m usually a blue girl!
I’m totally a pink girl. 😉
Does adding the water remove the paint? Just curious, love them!!
I love the colors, all of them. These are exactly the colors I use for my Easter decor this year, too 😉
So fun! My favorite colors. 🙂 Hope you have a wonderful Easter!
Those are gorgeous, Jamielyn! Wow…
Love these!! The colors are so pretty!! Thanks for the free printables!!
When you add the water doesn’t it ruin the paint?
I have always painted the outside, but I love the idea of painting the inside to keep that glossy look! Beautiful!
I LOVE the look of these painted mason jars, good tip to let them dry upside down!
If you add water to the jar of flowers won’t the paint dissolve? I would like to know since these would make wonderful Mother’s Day table favors!
Hi Marsha! It may wear off over time, you could spray a polycrylic finish to seal the paint!
Just tried this and baffled on how to get the entire jar covered. We shook and shook and shook. Guess I’ll go buy more paint. Used any entire bottle per jar.
Hi Jessica! If you fill the mason jars with about 1/4-1/2 an inch of paint at the bottom, it should be plenty to cover the whole jar! Hope yours turned out! 🙂
What kind of flowers are those?
They look like hydrangeas and peonies, i’m not sure though! 🙂
Hey… what size did you use? (Mason jar))
They look like a pint! 🙂
So if you put paint in the jar, what happens when you add water for the flowers?
I tried this using one of the paints pictured and it was too thick to shake around the jar. Did you thin the paint with something? Please let me know how you achieved such a pretty result.
Loved this idea. It brightens up the whole room. Only thing was that the newspaper had to be picked off after drying upside down. Maybe wax paper would work better.
I loved these and mine turned out so pretty but after drying on the newspaper and paper towels, the moisture left rings on the wood table and I cannot get them off for the life of me. Then I added water to these for the flowers and all of the paint rinsed down so the jars were left ugly and had to be thrown away. Did I do something wrong?
Hi Jamielyn, I fell in love with these when I first came across this post. I am hosting an Easter lunch this year and guess what I’m making to place on my tables 🙂
I recently featured your work on andalltheglory.com, “17 Easy DIY Ideas for Spring,” with a link to your tutorial. I hope this is okay.
Thank you for sharing your crafts with us!
