DIY EASY How to Painted Mason Jars



mason jar (s) – use as many as you want to paint!

A few sponge brushes (can buy at Michaels for cheap)

1 small bottle of black chalkboard paint

1 bottle of Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating 1303 Spray (this gives mason jars a protective gloss finish that is moisture resistant).

1-however many bottles of colored acrylic paint you want to buy. They range in price from 79 cents-$2 a piece at Michaels.

Step 1: Buy two mason jars. You can find these at consignment stores (like Goodwill) sometimes, Walmart, or Michaels, etc.


Step 2. Use your sponge brush to apply one light coat of black chalk board paint.

Wait an hour before applying color.

Step 3. Use sponge brush and paint one light coat of paint (color of your choice).  Check the drying time on your bottle of paint. I used FolkArt paint. The drying time was ONE HOUR between coats.  The shades I used were 639 French Blue and 1625 Fresh Foliage (this was an outdoor acrylic paint).
