Painted Mason Jars

Good morning!  Happy Good Friday!  This weekend looks like it will be quite busy with Easter on Sunday.  A weekend filled with family and friends and I'm sure a decent amount of sugar:)

I love the look of painted mason jars.  I think they look adorable and they can be so useful!  They can be used as vases adorned with fresh flowers, containers to hold art materials, or just placed on a shelf.  I hand painted these blue mason jars.  It's a fairly easy process.  I gave them a coat of primer, followed with black paint, and lastly a coat of blue paint.  I then took a piece of sandpaper and lightly distressed them so that the white and black paint would come through to give it a bit more dimension.

I hope you have a lovely Easter weekend!
I'll catch up with you next week.
