image
Hey y’all I had so much fun painting these Mason Jars !! It’s so easy ! I will show you how step by step with explanation + a chance to win a set!
image
Jars.
Paint.
Glitter (if you want).
Spray glue for glitter.
Sand paper to make it rustic a little bit.
Sponge brushes.
That’s all !!!
image

1) Clean off the jars and make sure they are dry.
2) With the sponge brush, paint the jar. (Repeat this for about 3 coats. Wait 20-30 min in between coats.)
3) Using sandpaper or a sanding block, distress the words and areas that would seem to get naturally scuffed.
4) Enjoy ya’ll it really was that easy !! I know the directions seem small and they are but it’s easy so you can do it !! Just try a few tips to look at down below.

I did this whole set in less than 2 hours. At the end i did spry with a clear coat just to seal them you don’t have to but i wanted to protect the glitter.
Now a few tips & tricks that helped me along the way:
– A lot of people say paint the inside of the jars I did NOT do this I did’y find that it was needed.
– I simply put my hand in the jar it wouldn’t go all the way in i just put it enough to paint the whole thing and move it around a bit as needed.
– When adding glitter to the rim if that’s the style you want don’t spray the glitter on it gets all over. I sprayed my sponge brush with the glue then applied where needed. and then sprinkled the glitter.
– The longer they dry between each coat the better.
– When applying the 2nd coat you will notice a but of paint “peeling” don’t stress it’s okay cause on coat 3 it covers it up & then when you distress with the sand paper it looks like it’s supposed to be that way.
– I used three different paints two were satin finish and one was matte the matte one honestly looks and works better.
– All my pictures will show my setup and what all i used as well.
– All you need is a tiny piece of sandpaper… go over the words and a few areas around the jar VERY lightly.
– Anytime i post a DIY craft you can ALWAYS ask me questions if i’m not clear on something :)
– If ya’ll like these as much as I do you can enter the giveaway at the bottom to win a set.

Hey Yall !!
This is my journey to make a blog inspire and find an outlet to be creative. I am new to this world of blogging and will not be politically correct nor will I please any English teachers out in the world (sorry sissy). I am 30 years young and married with 2 kids. With that being said that didn’t come easy I am not the ready made wife and PTO mom. I have a very colorful past full of hot mess that most southern belles would frown on. But that made me who I am and personally think made me more opened minded than most people you will run into on a daily basis. Sometimes I cuss to much and have to pitch myself and say hello is that how you want your almost 2 and 5 year old to talk ??? Umm no who does? But hey life gets in the way when you stomp your toe on the door frame and step on a hot wheels car. I have one bi-racial child my oldest Ca’Rin Shine that is already so hard headed and determined it’s insane maybe those two things will go great together when it’s not me trying to contain her to what a normal healthy 5 year old should be doing. Is a bi-racial child a great thing in the south I would think not but in the Carlson house hold its amazing and for the sun worshiping goddesses me and my sisters are we may be a little jealous of that year round pecan tan summer glow. Please go on this journey with me with an open mind let’s have fun and raise a little heck. - See more at: http://sequinsinthesouth.com/me-me-me/#sthash.5IPYupCV.dpuf
