Frosted Mason Jars
Mason jars are so beautiful in their own rustic way. There are so many ways you can recycle glass jars. Mason Jars in particular can be useful to store craft supplies, hold flowers, dispense soap, or use as illuminaries.
These Classico Sauce jars are my favorite.
I have a cupboard full because I know I’ll find a place for all of them! I decided to try frosting a few to see how they would turn out. Here is what I did.
First clean and rinse your jars with soap and water (that is, after you eat the sauce!). To remove the label, soak them in warm soapy water for about an hour. Jars may vary with soaking time. Most labels come off very easy. Use the rough side of a sponge to gently scrub off the label.
Next, dry each Mason jar thoroughly.
If desired, you can use stickers or decals to create a design. I used simple curling ribbon and wrapped the jar, securing it with tape.
Spray paint the jars in a well-ventilated area holding the can approximately 12 inches away. Allow them to dry.
Remove the ribbon, sticker(s), or decal(s). There you have it!
So easy! Mix them with unfrosted jars and insert tea lights for a pretty glow or consider making mason jar centerpieces for a wedding. Just add flowers!
