There are pins all over Pinterst on about taking Mason jars and painting them. Here is one…Click here. I have been saving mason jars, and pasta jars for a few months now.
I purchased paint from Wal-mart, and mixed my own colors, and painted the outside of the jars, so I can still use them as vases. I will let them dry over night, and hopefully pick up some flowers tomorrow so I can showcase my new vases. I might start collecting more jars, so I can give them out as gifts!
