Hellooo Friday!  I can’t believe it is already May, and you know what that means?  Mothers Day is fast approaching!  If your still looking for a fabulous gift idea that can be made in a matter of minutes, this painted mason jar vase is just that!

I had actually made this painted mason jar vase for my neighbor who recently got diagnosed with breast cancer.  After making it I had a feeling I would be making a few more for the moms in our lives cause they turned out so cute!

Step 1:  Paint your mason jar using a foam brush with two coats of chalk paint.  I used Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in color everlasting.  In honor of breast cancer, I wanted it to be pink though.  I didn’t have any chalk paint in that color, so I just simply mixed a little bit of Americana acrylic paint in color carousel pink to the everlasting chalky paint, to get my desired color.  Then lightly sanded areas with a sanding block for a little distressing.

Step 2: Then I just used some tacky glue and glued some twine around the mouth of the mason jar.  Then added some fresh flowers.

    What a wonderful idea of mixing your own color! There are several times that I want a color that is not available in chalk paint, and now I can make my own. Thank you so much, I will be doing this very soon! We would love for you to share with us at Party in Your PJs
