Valentine’s Day is just over a week away! The truffle tart has been made and sampled, heart cupcakes are ready for school parties but where are the flowers? I’m a woman that loves fresh flowers. I don’t necessarily need to receive them for Valentine’s Day but I do like having them in my home each week.
This past weekend I brought out some spare mason jars and the spray paint to complete this mason jar craft. I attempted several times with chalkboard paint but I didn’t like the finished product. Chalkboard paint is a new favorite of mine but it just didn’t cooperate with MY mason jars. I brought out my spray paint to see what it would do and I immediately fell in love with the look.
Next up I attempted to write on the jars with paint and stencil. However I think it took away from the overall look that I was going for which was simple and elegant. Last minute I added a pink/magenta ribbon to compliment the pink peonies. The ribbon just slips on and off and you can change it with the addition of new flowers.

Spray the jar lightly outside rotating to cover all sides. Let it air dry for about 3-4 minutes and then repeat. You will want about 4 coats on the jar. Let it dry and then rinse out the jar.
Place a ribbon around the outside and then add fresh flowers and water.
