I have seen painted mason jars all over the internet. Google "Painted Mason Jars" and you will find hundreds of different photos! I am not taking credit for the idea. But I have been known to spray paint anything & everything!! I had a lot of jars, a lot of spray paint, and about 5 minutes - that's all you need!
I used spray paint to paint the outside of my jars. I first turned them upside down and painted them, then after they were dry, I turned them right side up and painted them. I lightly sanded the letters - you could really go crazy on the sanding if you wanted to!
I found this cute wood box at the thrift shop and gave it a coat of spray paint as well. I love that 3 jars fit perfectly in the box!
Since this is to be an indoor decoration, I didn't want to plant a real plant....because, well, I am not the best with real plants!! I found these cute little greenish plants at Joann's.
