I'm here today to share a closer look at one of the projects we will be creating at our first Spring Cut & Paste Workshop. I love the way this project turned out and I have found the it can be used for many different things including being a planter for a succulent!
Chalkboard-Painted Mason Jars
This mason jar was so easy to create. I simply used the Prima Chalkboard Paint and completely covered the mason jar. I found that I was able to get the best coverage by lightly brushing the paint on and doing multiple layers after the previous layer had dried. After I was happy with the coverage, I liberally scraped away some of the paint using a nail file over the raised areas. Also, since this is chalkboard paint, I took a white piece of chalk and added a few marks around the jar and lightly rubbed it in with my fingertips. Overall this project has such a cool, vintage vibe that takes very minimal time and effort to produce.
The Prima Chalkboard Paints come in a variety of colors that are perfect for the upcoming spring season. Once painted, these mason jars can serve a variety of purposes including being a planter for a succulent (as seen above) or a container for all of our favorite writing utensils.
Every time to see the completed jar I smile at how cute it is! I love adding little touches of creativity (and spring!) into my everyday. If you are interested in learning exactly how to make these jars, and a variety of other spring-themed projects, then you should consider signing up for our Spring Cut & Paste Workshop. We will be creating these mason jars as well as 4 other Pinterest-inspired projects. We will also be serving a fun Picnic Lunch to keep all of your creative juices flowing throughout the day.
The event cost is $50. For more information click here.
Hope you enjoyed this project idea!
