Mason Jars. You see them EVERYWHERE! They're fun, shabby-chic, and inexpensive. Pinterest is literally exploding with mason jar ideas, while wedding venues have them filled with baby's breath and wrapped in burlap. We challenged two of our experts to decorate their own mason jars with a FUN Prima spin...including our new Chalkboard Paints and Finnabair's art mediums! (Those cute yellow jars by Adrienne were painted with our Eggshell and Golden chalkboard paints!)
"Mason jars are everywhere at the moment, and I wanted to create mine with a different edge. The jar has been painted with Sand Chalkboard Paint, then given an aged look with a rub of gold acrylic paint. The little rabbit on the lid started off brown, but with a coat of Eggshell chalkboard paint he has been transformed! I've mixed in some Mechanicals and Art Ingredients for interest and texture. A crown for King Bun was fashioned from a tiny Mechanicals flower. The possibilities are simply endless with Prima!!" ~Fran Westmoreland

"With a little chalkboard paint and our new Finnabair art mediums you can turn a regular mason jar into a sparkly, fall candle...or vase ready just waiting for a few gorgeous mums! To carry the rustic appearance I decorated with new Capri burlap flowers and added lots of gel and glitter to the leaves."~Amélie Mordret

You don't have to buy Mason jars to do these projects! Shirel took recycled jars she was just going to toss and painted them to create these amazing "write-on" centerpieces! Seriously...what a FABULOUS idea! Simply paint part of the jar with our Chalkboard Paints. (Use tape to create clean lines.) Add thin coats of paint for best results, and to reduce drips. Once dry decorate with Prima laces, trims, and flowers. Add a personal message with chalk, or chalk markers! Switch out the message each day for an interactive table decoration your whole family will enjoy.
