You know how there are heaps of painted bottles and jars all over the blogosphere? Well I just love them!!!! And I love jars so you know I just had to give it a go!
I also wanted to create something "beachy" to fit in with my decor. Now that we are heading into the darkness of Winter (sob), I wanted a reminder of summer. So my jars are beach inspired....
What I did???
Take a jar (any jar) and pour paint into it.
Swirl the paint around until the glass is evenly coated and decant the rest back into the paint container.
Allow to dry overnight
I decorated my jars with beads and raffia, anything that looked like it would work....
And there you have a cool beach inspired jar!
The colours I used were turquoise, white and yellow. The turquoise and yellow - I mixed with a little white to give it a "milky" appearance......
I am super happy with them and have plans to convert many more of my jars....
I promise not to touch my 2 precious Mason jars though ;-)
Now to find a sun filled spot to display them...
Thanks for stopping by
