Tips to Make Chalk Painted Jars
- I got everything I needed to make these beautiful pastel mason jars at the Dollar Tree. But you can find a lot of these supplies at any craft store. You may already have all of them. If you’re having trouble finding the jars, though, I like these jars here because they’re just a great every-day size for any craft or storage.
- When you are painting on glass, one of the best tips I like to offer (even when you’re using chalk paint), is to apply a second coat. There’s nothing more disappointing than making your painted jar and thinking that you’re done when you finish that first coat and you realize it got all streaky. A second coat solves that. Just let the first coat dry completely, then go over it again and you’ll LOVE the result.
- The next question I like to get answered is “what do you DO with these chalk painted jars?” Easy. Just check out all these awesome mason jar cookie recipes you can toss into a jar and give for Mother’s Day, a ding-dong-dash gift or anything!
How Do I Make These Pastel Mason Jars?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 3 Large Mason Jars (or any jars you have on hand)
- 18 White Pearl Pony Beads
- Jute Twine
- Chalk Paint in Ivory, Pink and Grey Pastel Colors
- Light Sand Paper
- Paint Brush
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Clean and dry your jars completely before starting. Paint one of the mason jars with the grey chalk paint, one with the ivory chalk paint, and the final jar with the pink chalk paint. Allow this coat of paint to dry completely. Repeat painting each jar with a second coat of the same color paint and allow this coat of paint to dry completely again.
- With the light sand paper gently sand the corners and lettering on the front of the mason jar to give it a roughened look.
- Using the jute twine, wrap it around the top of the jar about 5 times, leaving a long tail of approximately 5 inches long on both ends. Tie the ends of the jute twine together in a bow.
- Slide three of the white pony beads onto the tail of each bow end and just double knot the tail to keep the beads on. Add a dot of hot glue to the bow and knots on the ends of the tails to keep the knots and bow from coming loose. Then enjoy!
