Hi There! I’m Dee, and I blog over at Meatloaf and Melodrama, where I share easy crafts, DIY projects and simple recipes. I am thrilled to be guest posting on PinkWhen today, and I have a cute summer craft to show you!
I love the look of painted mason jars, and you can do so many different things with them. Because summer is the season for picnics and cookouts, I thought it would be fun to paint mason jars in a summer theme and use them to hold utensils.
I wanted the jars to be bright and fresh, so I decided to paint one to look like a watermelon and one a nice lemon-yellow color. I started out with two plain mason jars and took them out to the back yard for a quick spray-painting session.
I know that distressed mason jars are popular, but I wanted to keep these bright and summery — so, no distressing this time! The jars needed some embellishment, so I found some pretty green and white ribbon on sale at Michael’s, and I cut the ribbon to fit around the neck of each jar.
I used hot glue to attach the ribbon to the jars, and then I got out my trusty Sharpie and drew some black seeds on the red jar.
Now, I have a cute watermelon mason jar and a lemony yellow mason jar! I love the way the jars add some color to the outdoor table. I filled them up with plastic utensils, but you could also add some fresh flowers or other items for your table.
This is a super easy craft, and it didn’t take long at all to do. If you would like to see more projects like this, I would love for you to stop by and visit me anytime.
Thanks so much, Jennifer, for allowing me to share this with your fantastic audience!
