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.

DIY Farmhouse Christmas Mason Jars Tutorial

Supplies:
  • 3 mason jars
  • 3 different Christmas colors of paint (you can use acrylic matte paint or chalk paint which are both very similar)
  • Paintbrush
  • 80 grit sandpaper
  • Jute String
  • Decorative accent (I used some rusty bells)
Directions:

Paint the jars by flipping them upside-down first (I put mine on disposable plates for easy clean up).  I added 3 coats of paint for an even-looking coverage, making sure the paint dries completely between coats.

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).  Don’t they look great?!!

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!

Happy Holidays!
