DIY Pinterest jars

Recently I've seen loads of cute mason jars on social media, so I decided to try and make something that looks pretty similar to them at home! The DIY worked really well and it was super duper easy, so obviously I'm going to share it with you guys!

What you will need:
-An empty jar
-A  hot glue gun
-Some paint (I used some leftover matte wall paint) and a brush

First of all you need to make sure that your jar is all clean on the inside and that any labels have been removed.


Plug in your glue gun and wait for it to heat up then use it to 'draw' whatever you want on to your jar. I just made a letter 'A' for the first letter of my name, but you could do a shape, pattern or anything else. Let the glue dry and harden before moving on to the next step.


This final step is probably the most time consuming part of the whole DIY, but you basically just need to paint over your whole jar. To get the best results, don't apply a really thick coat of paint at once, but do a few thin coats, remembering to leave it to dry in between each coat. 


Once my jar was complete, I actually sprayed it with a bit of perfume to get rid of the smell of paint!
As you can see, this DIY is super easy and you need hardly any supplies.

Have you tried any other DIY's with jars before?

    1. It's actually empty at the moment, but I might take the lid off and put some fake flowers in it!

  2. Aw, that is so cute! I love the look of mason jars with the raised logos, but I've always hated that they're logos, haha! It's good to know there are ways to make them a bit more personal :) I've never done a mason jar craft, at all. I always pin them, but never get around to it! Thanks for sharing this one!
