Mason jars are simple, versatile, and inexpensive, making them an essential “go-to” wedding staple for many DIY brides. As a result, this mason jar phenomenon – and trend – is turning up in wedding nooks + crannies everywhere. If you are a bride who thinks mason jars are becoming too “trendy”, it’s time to take a fresh approach: just add paint! Today, we’re sharing tutorials on how to paint a mason jar to turn ordinary canning jars into chic, wedding-worthy decor pieces you’ll happily reuse ever after. Enjoy!
How to Paint a Mason Jar
* * *
1. Lace Covered Mason Jars + Paint
2. Black + White + Glue Gun Lettering (Brilliant.)
Black and white painted mason jars look modern and the glue gun lettering underneath makes personalization a cinch. Use a glue gun to add a custom table number (for centerpieces), your monogram, or the wedding date to make it your own.
3. Bright + Sunny
A fresh coat of yellow paint makes these mason jars pop with bunches of daisies.
4. White with Lettering
Wooden letters can be placed on the jar prior to painting to reveal a message after it dries. We love the idea of a custom quote or favorite song verse. Fill with flowers and place a different one at each table.
5. Prints in Paint
Use paint and a decal to pretty up your favorite jar.
6. Chalkboard Paint ‘Em Up
7. Rainbow Tinted Mason Jars
Add just a pinch of color with tinted mason jars. We love this idea!
8. Wedding White
Classic wedding white is chic, sophisticated and can blend into any palette.
9. Gold Mason Jar
Gold metallic spray paint + a pretty bouquet turns any jar into a party-ready centerpiece.
10. Blue Tinted Mason Jars
Blue mason jars are more expensive and hard to find! Skip the thrift stores and flea markets and spend one Saturday tinting regular clear mason jars instead!
