Painted Mason Jar Welcome Sign

As I mentioned above I love mason jars and projects using mason jars.  I have an entire Pinterest board of mason jar ideas that you can follow if you are an addict like me.  This is the first time I have painted them with chalk paint though and it really turned out nice.  In the past I have tinted them.  You can see how those turned out here!

This was originally a class I offered here in town.  It was great fun!

 

Materials Needed For Mason Jar Sign

Two Mason Jars – pin size

Wood lath

Two Pipe clamps

Screws and washers

Drill

Paint/stain

Chalk paint

Flowers

Patterned paper

Cutting machine such as Silhouette or Cricut

Two S hooks

Getting Started

We had the wood pieces pre-cut, stained and put together for the class.  But each lath piece was cut at 12 inches long.  Then we place 6 of them side by side and used two pieces on the back to glue them together.  This was the top part.  The bottom part was done the same way but the 8 pieces of lath were cut shorter at 4 inches.

When the glue is dry paint or stain the wood pieces.  I used thinned down brown paint for mine.

Then drill holes in the top and the bottom pieces so you can add S hooks.

Paint Your Mason Jars

I use my favorite Americana DecoArt Chalky finish and the color is Vintage.  After it is dry use a sanding block to distress the jars.

Add The Hardware 

This is not hard but hard to explain.  I have added a video I found on You Tube from DIY Playbook that explains it well with a nice visual video!  

 

 

I love this project and I know you will too!  Enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by!
