Since none of the projects I have been working on lately are turning out as planned. I decided to make a quick and SUPER easy craft using Mason Jars! I have been playing around for the first time with chalk paint and loving it! So with Fall right around the corner, I decided to make a cute fall decoration utilizing my new favorite paint! These chalk paint mason jars will fit perfectly next to the chalkboard sign on my front porch or on a shelf inside. They turned out so stinkin cute though, that now I can’t decide where I want to put them 🙂
- 4 Mason Jars
- chalk paint
- craft paint
- flowers (I used artificial. If you saw my post on my succulent planter, you saw that I don’t ever keep my flowers alive 🙂 So artificial is PERFECT for me!)
- sponge brush
Painted all the mason jars with one coat of annie sloan chalk paint in old white, and applied with a sponge brush.
I wanted the jars to have an antique/distressed look, so once they were all painted and fully dry I sanded some parts. I love the look it gave them!
To make painting the letters on easier, I taped stencils to the jars, then painted them with acrylic paint in a pretty metallic brown color.
Added some flowers and whallah! I have cute Fall Mason Jar Vases!
I absolutely love how these turned out! They will fit perfectly on my front porch with my welcome sign or somewhere else in my home! What I love even more is how SUPER easy they are to make and how they add the perfect amount of Fall to your home!

Are you looking forward to the Fall or are you holding on to summer as long as you can?
So this year I decided to update these already fabulous fall mason jar vases! Come take a look at what they look like now and get all the details HERE.

I LOVE this!! I tried a similar version but with black chalk paint. I love the white so much more for pops of color. So this is for sure on my list of crafts for fall!!! Now I just need the weather to COOL down here!!! Thanks for sharing:)
Thank you, Stephanie! Unfortunately the weather has already started cooling down here 🙁 We have had rain the past couple of days and chilly nights. Not sure I am ready for fall weather but I am ready to decorate for it 🙂

Thank you, Helen! They really are so easy to make! So glad you stopped by and I was able to inspire you!
HELP I can’t find Chalk paint in my area. Where did u find your’s at? They are super beautiful.
Did you check the link that I shared that has a list of available suppliers in your area? It is only sold in select retailers stores, it is not available in big box stores. Check out this link to see if there is a retailer near you. http://www.anniesloan.com/acatalog/North_American_Stockists.html If no luck there, you can always use a different chalk paint. They sell DecoArt Americana Chalky paint at Home Depot and Michaels. Hope this helps and you can find some.
I love this, Tara! So creative! Pinning, and sharing on FB…

How exciting! Thank you!
These are amazing and so easy! I’m planning to use mason jars for a wedding and putting something like L-O-V-E in my colors would be perfect! Thanks for the inspiration!!
What a great idea to use them for the wedding, they will be so cute! They really are so easy to make! You could have a little craft party one night and have your bridesmaids help you make them 🙂 Happy wedding planning and thank you for stopping by!
Kelly Wiler says
Tara, I’m soo loving your fall mason jars, they are perfect for soo many different uses!
Where did you happen to find the stencils?
Hi Tyfany! I found mine at Michaels Craft Store. You can find them at any craft store though, I have seen them at Hobby Lobby and Jo-Anne’s.
Oh, I love these!!! I’m having trouble with all of my projects here lately. Everything I try to make is a flop. Maybe I can make some of these without completely screwing them up!!
Beth recently posted…Is A Spam Comment Better Than No Comment??
This craft looks adorable and incredibly easy that a non patient person like myself could do for my home! I will probably tweak it and make mine more halloween themed, but I loved this post in general!
Kaelyn recently posted…September Beauty Empties
Thank you, Kaelyn. With how simple and easy to these are to make, they really are the perfect project for an impatient person 🙂
Tara, I absolutely love these!
Thank you so much, Vicki!
These are adorable!! Absolutely love them.
Heidi recently posted…Burlap Fall Wreath
Thank you so much, Heidi!
I was wondering…. I have a rustic looking wood frame. Do you think that chalk paint would work on that?
I am also a fan of chalk paint but have not tried painting jars with it. You have inspired me to try it. Your fall jars are so cute! Thanks for the idea. It looks easy enough.
Thank you, Susanne!
Can you tell me if you waxed the jars after you painted them? I thought you had to seal the paint?
Also, have you painted glass tea lights/glass candle sticks before. I have the same question – Can I wax the tea lights or will the wax melt when the candle is lit?

So chic! Giving it a shout out on Twitter today, @Estimake 🙂

Why did you choose to use the chalk paint versus a regular craft paint.
You can turn your mason jars into gorgeous snow globes. All you have to do is empty the mason jar, and fill it with fake snow, glitter and plastic ornaments. Lastly, glue the toy mistletoe on the top of the lid, and screw it back on. If you are looking for mason jars of different sizes, head over to Premium Vials we offer wide range of mason jar mugs.
