Today I’m sharing a quick tutorial on crafting jars/bottles in PINK and it’s the easiest craft in the world.
The jars in the first photo started out looking like the jars above. The green jar is one of the commemorative editions while the other two I painted a couple of years ago to look like old mercury glass and shared a tutorial HERE.

I love these and use them all the time, but have many so no worries in changing a few out to pink…
spray paint for mason jars
I had these paints on hand and found them all at the Home Depot at one time or another. What you’ll need basically is a roll of painter’s tape, some pink spray acrylic paint and a can of Rustoleum Chalk Board paint.
Tape off any areas that you don’t want the spray to hit and do this outside or in a spray box. You can make a spray station by taking a large cardboard box and cutting off one side, if the cold weather prevents you from working outdoors. It you do that, be sure to wear a mask or working in a ventilated room. Safety first at all times in making valentine crafts mason jars or any spray paint project.
When you spray or paint jars paint them upside down, as you want the paint to get as close to the bottom of the jar as possible so that it doesn’t look too funky.
Remove the tape carefully to prevent peeling off the paint in areas that you might not want peeled. I like to do that as soon as the paint seems dry to the touch, as I’ve found that waiting too long sometimes makes for a sticky mess.
The jar on the right was the green jar, which I gave a first spray coat of the chalk paint in black and then the pink over it once dry. Spraying with black paint first makes the jars have a great patina. I took some 100 grit sandpaper to lightly distress the jar and show some of the black underneath. These valentine crafts mason jars are great for your Valentine’s Day roses, or to fill with candy for a friend.

How about a pencil cup? Just fancy it up with some ribbon.

I decided to do a few more and on this one I tied a torn piece of shabby chic fabric as a ribbon and stamped a French sentiment. Endless possibilities limited only by your imagination. What would you do with your valentine crafts mason jars?
