Hi I Heart Nap Time friends.  Jenny Raulli from Bloom Designs Online happy to be back here sharing a spring gift idea and printable tags with you.  I always feel like there are so many times in spring when I need a little gift to honor someone in my life.  Whether it is my children’s teachers for teacher appreciation week, neighbors for May Day, or other moms who help make carpool easier, now is a great time to have a basic go to gift to let these people know that they are important to you.

Since it’s spring, what easier gift than flowers!  They are popping up everywhere right now in Southern California.  Painted mason jars make great container for these beautiful bouquets.  These painted vases are easy to make and are a great project to have your children help you with.  My four kids love picking flower from our yard!

To make them you will need mason jars (I always keep a bunch at home for different projects) and acrylic paint in any color.

Put a big squirt of paint in the bottom of the jar. Secure the lid and shake well until the inside of the jar is completely covered with paint.  By painting the inside of the glass, the vases have a nice glossy finish.  Remove the lids and allow the jars to dry upside down over night.  Any extra paint may drip out.  Once dry, fill with your favorite flowers.

    I love the colors, all of them. These are exactly the colors I use for my Easter decor this year, too ;-)

    I have always painted the outside, but I love the idea of painting the inside to keep that glossy look! Beautiful!

    If you add water to the jar of flowers won’t the paint dissolve? I would like to know since these would make wonderful Mother’s Day table favors!

    Just tried this and baffled on how to get the entire jar covered. We shook and shook and shook. Guess I’ll go buy more paint. Used any entire bottle per jar.

      Hi Jessica! If you fill the mason jars with about 1/4-1/2 an inch of paint at the bottom, it should be plenty to cover the whole jar! Hope yours turned out! :)
