Mason Jars

Don’t you just love mason jars? But wouldn’t they be better with some color?  I sure think so.  I have most of my house decorated in mason jars.  I use them for almost everything: pin holders, candle holders, toothbrush holders, I even have a jar full of buttons (super adorable).  Although, sometimes just a plain old mason jar won’t work. I need some color in my life.  So, I tinted my mason jars!! It is super easy and you will get tons of compliments.

All you need is:

  • Mason Jars
  • Mod Podge
  • Food Coloring
  • Little Bowls
  • Stirring Stick
  • Newspaper or Paper Towels 

You just put some Mod Podge in the little bowls with your desired food coloring and mix it up really well with the stirring stick and then pour it into a mason jar and turn the jar around to where the colorful goo has made it all over the jar.  Once the whole inside area of the jar is covered just lay it on top of the newspaper (bottom side up).  You can mix up another color and get to working on another jar.  Once you are done you need to set out another area of newspaper (just in case there is still a mess) and flip the jars right side up onto the new set of newspaper.  From there you just let them dry. I could take up to a day to get completely dry.  After that it is up to you to decorate however your little heart desires!!
