Mason jars were, and possibly are, a staple of the country home or the dedicated prepper. They can be used in pressure canners or double as canisters for dry goods. But they can also be an important part of shabby chic décor. Your shabby chic mason jars can be used or created in a variety of ways.
You could save jars from supermarket purchases if you are a dedicated DIY home artist, but genuine Mason jars are a better choice. They have thicker glass than most of the glass jars that contain pickles, spaghetti sauce or similar items because they are manufactured to withstand pressure canning. This means that your project will have greater durability if made with a genuine canning jar. Kerr canning jars are also an option.
If you are lucky enough to come across a blue or green mason jar, especially if it has a zinc top with a porcelain lid liner, that’s a decorator item all on its own. Lesser jars made of clear glass can be painted, decorated, and have bright labels added to create your desired effect.
For example, swirl paint inside a clear, glass canning jar. You can make it a solid color, or eye dropper brighter colors into a pastel base for an interesting effect. Let the paint dry, and swirl a little sand inside it to abrade part of the color away. Fill with colored sand or marbles, and add silk flowers for a bright, seasonal bouquet. Alternatively, paint the outside of the jar with chalk paint. Lightly sand the dried paint to remove it from the raised letters of the jar, and to add the appearance of wear. Since this jar doesn’t have paint inside it, you can store almost anything in it by adding a decorated screw band and flat lid to the top.
