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)
- 80 grit sandpaper
- Transparent paint
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.
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!).
- 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.
Continue with all the raised edges on both sides.
Without forgetting the inscription: Made in Usa!
Rub the sandpaper on the relief with the fruit.
Now move on to the front of the jar.
Make sure that the words "Mason" and "Ball" are completely visible.
Finish with the top and bottom of the jar.
- Transparent paint
Finally, use the transparent varnish to make the finish more resistant over time.
To best preserve your new pickled cans, remember not to immerse them in water and not to put them in the dishwasher.
