DIY Distressed Mason Jars

Posted on September 05 2013


Mason jars are really in right now and there are SO many crafts you can do with them. This is TumbleRoot’s favorite mason jar craft! You can choose whatever color you want to paint them with and you can use them any way you want! You can use these awesome distressed mason jars as candle holders, make-up brush holders, or you can even put flowers in them!

Here’s what you’ll need:
A mason jar
Acrylic paint
A paintbrush
Sand paper

The first thing we did was lay out newspaper over our table so we wouldn’t accidentally stain anything! Then we poured a little bit of acrylic paint on to a paper plate and got ready to paint. You may want to wash the jar before you start painting. The first coat of paint took less than two minutes to do! Here’s what our jar looked like after the first coat:

Then you have to wait about 30 minutes to an hour to do the next coat of paint (perfect amount time for a TV break!). We recommend doing two or three coats of paint. Once you’re done painting, you should let the jar dry over night.

Now that you’ve waited a whole night, it’s time to distress the jar! Make sure you still have the newspaper underneath the jar because this part gets kind of messy. All you have to do is take the sandpaper and rub it over the parts of the jar you want distressed. This is our favorite part because there’s absolutely no way to mess it up. You get to decide how little or how much you want to distress the jar! Once you’re done with sanding the jars, you have your finished product! Feel free to use it anyway you’d like (except you probably don’t want to drink out of it)!

    Stop wearing them. No man likes a girl that pedraas in his clothes its clingy, mark my words he will be done with you before you can say February. If you can’t afford a hoody, I can lay off the drugs for 10 minutes and by then I should have saved enough money to buy you one.Girls wearing their guys hoodies= high maintenance and low sex drive.and the mear fact that you cant fit into you mans hoodie means he is a keeper, small men should be placed in camps and shot a couple years later. I blame soy products and lack of milk growing up. Rule of thumb: If your man weighs under 180 pounds, he is a beftch, if your man cannot do 3 pullups, he is a bitch. If your women wears your clothes, your the bitch in the relationship.

    Great article Rob! You hit the nail on the head. Makes me wendor why more people don’t look into getting involved in this industry. Very low risk to get started yet people will spend their life fortunes on riskier business investments. That is why it is up to us to show every one there is a better way.
