What You Need: Materials + Use
1. A pair of scissors (any should be fine, even a kids crafts scissor)-and obvs. handle w/ care. Use to cut 'Twine', or excess stems/leaves of your faux flowers.
2. Some 'Twine', to wrap around in a simple shoe-lace bow form to cover the lines of the jar opening. A few meters should be good, depending on how many jar vases you want to make.
3. 2-3 Mason jars- if you'd like to create a display or set like the one pictured above, but again this depends on how many vases you would like to make.
4. Paints- Glass paints or Acrylic paints. Glass paint would work best. Any colors you'd prefer. If you plan to follow this tutorial just like in the image above, then purchase deep purple, lilac, teal, and vegemite/grassy green colored paints.
5. A few normal sized paint brushes. (2-3) Using your glass paints and brushes keep a steady hand and apply smooth, yet wide strokes as if you were applying nail polish. Go around front and back, and left and right- all four sides of your jar. Using this method will help you achieve an even and smooth texture, and will save you paint and time.
6. Finishing sealant, preferably an acetone based clear color. You can easily find this at Michael's. Self-explanatory but use a can of sealant to give your painted jar a clean finish and a polished look. Do wait a few minutes after you've finished painting your mason jar vases, before spraying the sealant. It also helps the paint dry faster as well.
7. Faux Flowers: A handful or as many as you need depending on how many vases you're making.
Tip: Look for flowers in a variety of different sizes and lots of bold, bright, and pastel colors as they not only fit the summer floral theme but also are perfect for all seasons. A timeless piece of decor.
--Additional Notes: All items listed here were purchased from Michael's crafts store. All items are $5.00 or less, EXCEPT for the faux flowers. Those were $8-10 per piece at Michael's depending on the size, and design of each. I would recommend you try to look around at different craft shops and whole sale stores, and find reasonably priced faux flowers which might even turn out to be unique and just as good as the Michael's one's photographed above. Everything else used you can find pretty much anywhere at any local craft store and most items even in your own home.
