How to make a centerpiece with glass jars

So let's see how to make a rustic centerpiece with Mason Jars glass jars.

What you need:

  • Chalked Paint (white, pink blush and gray)
  • paintbrushes
  • 80 grit sandpaper
  • Transparent paint
  1. Preparation

If you have opted for a glass jar that has already been used, our advice is to clean it thoroughly with alcohol and then rinse it with warm soapy water.

  1. Vernice

Start with two coats of Chalk Paint, allowing the can to dry completely. Plaster paint is ideal for obtaining a vintage or country chic style, as well as being a very easy and versatile type of paint: it dries very quickly, offers excellent coverage and adheres perfectly to the surface of the can (much more than other types of painting!). 

  1. Sand paper

Cut the sandpaper into rectangles by folding them in two, so that you have two sides to work with. After that, start with the top edge of the jar and that of the lid.
