How to Make Mason Jar Vases
1. Paint the interior of the mason jar with a black enamel-based paint. You can swirl the paint around the jar, but make sure that the inside is completely covered. Let the paint inside the mason jar dry.
3. Once the inside and outside of the mason jar is completely dry, use sandpaper to sand around the edges of your mason jar. Slightly sand the canning jar logo and the rim of the jar. The black interior will show through after you sand. The coarser the sandpaper, the more distressed your mason jars will look. There is no right or wrong look for your mason jar. Just have fun with it!
5. You now have a fun flower vase for your beautiful flowers. Add the vase to any room in your home that needs a pop of color. The mason jar vases can also make a great homemade gift.
