I just love how these little mason jars turned out!!!  They were so affordable to make and you can fill them with just about anything.  I put some pine branches inside mine and set them out for decoration but come Christmas Day, they’ll be the main centerpiece on my dinner table.

***You will also need some 80 grit sandpaper, some jute string, and a decorative accent to tie around the neck of the jar (I used some rusty-looking bells)

  • 3 mason jars
  • 3 different Christmas colors of paint (you can use acrylic matte paint or chalk paint which are both very similar)
  • Paintbrush


Paint the top of the jars first


Then flip them over and finish the bottoms (I added 3 coats of paint for an even-looking coverage)


Give the jars a distressed look by sanding all of the raised areas of the glass with the sandpaper


I also sanded a few small flat areas here and there, but didn’t overdue it


Wrap some jute string around the lid, then tie your decorative accent to the neck (I added my rusty bells)


Find something to put in them!  I used some decorative pine with berries but you could also fill them with candy and give them out as gifts!
