Easter is right around the corner and, let me say this, I am so behind on my Easter Crafts. I did them, but getting them here just seemed impossible! Opps! I finally got around to getting my photos done and now I am here to share them with you! Today we have DIY Easter Mason Jars! These Easter Mason Jars were so easy to make that anyone can do it!
Crafting is always fun for me. It’s like I get into my own little world and get to create anything I want to create! With Easter right around the corner, I wanted to create something simple that would hold our Easter candy. I didn’t want what everyone else had. I wanted something my own. This is how I ended up with my super cute and simple DIY Easter Mason Jars.
These DIY Easter Mason Jars were so easy to make that anyone can make them. Just be sure to do this outside as you don’t want the fumes from spray paint in your home in a small space. That would be no good. Grab some old cardboard or newspaper to spray paint your tops on as well. =)
Preparing you Lids!
The first thing you want to do is Glue your Plastic Eggs to your Mason Jar Lid. There are two pieces to you lid so you can separate them. Makes it east to spray paint. Once you have glued your eggs to the lids, make sure they are clean. You don’t want any hot glue strands messing up your beautiful project.
Time to Paint these Bad Boys.
Once you have prepared your lids, it’s time to spray paint. I made a few mistakes and maybe you can learn from them. Haha. Getting the base of the egg was tricky. You are going to want to hold it upside down and just give that base a light coat. I had a hard time getting the base when it was standing upright. Once you gave the base of the egg a light coat, continue to spray the rest of you lid. Be sure to stand the recommended distance. you don’t want to create drips.
More coats? Why Yes!
The chances are you will need to at least do two coats. I ended up needing to do 3 coat as I used a Gold Glitter spray paint. I let my lids sit for about an hour in between coats. After my final coat, I let my lids sit for a few hours to ensure they were dry. Once I ned they were dried, I was ready to put my Jars together!
Once your lids are dried you are ready to assemble your jars. Actually, as I am looking at this photo, you could even add some burlap ribbon right under the lid to add some more fun touches to it. Fill these Jars with some of your favorite Easter Candy and you have your own Easter Mason Jars!
So simple and easy to make! They would look great on anyone’s table filled with Easter yumminess!
